Jarre can be the next president of the CISAC.

He was in the last summit in Bruxelels – 2011.

Is it the first Jarre official event in US since Houston ?

Robi - Fri Apr 12, 2013 8:40 am

It does seem so!


Do you also - after so many times - have a guess that Jarre may try to conquest America once again for next year? If the tour goes ahead....

WASHINGTON, DC (June 5, 2013) – At the occasion of the World Creators Summit held today in Washington, DC, CISAC (the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers) announced the launch of LINK, a forum made up of artists from across all of CISAC’s represented creative disciplines: music, drama, literature, audio-visual and visual arts.

LINK will facilitate and enhance the communication and understanding between the creative community, collective management societies, and decision makers. As a multi-repertoire independent creators’ strategic think-tank, LINK will serve to unite the voice of creators and to ensure the flow of information between CISAC leadership, the global creative community, and ultimately policy makers whose decisions directly affect artists’ livelihood.

LINK counts a list of well known creators as its members. The first meeting included Jean Michel Jarre, Angélique Kidjo, Javed Akhtar, Rupert Hine, Bendik Hofseth, Ousmane Sow, Werner Stauffacher, Simon Darlow, Penny Grubb, and the chairs of CISAC’s International Councils of Creators: Lorenzo Ferrero, Hervé di Rosa and Yves Nilly.

“LINK federates all sectors of creators of the Arts across the continents and the two hemispheres” said Jarre. “With the positive power of the artists’ voices united, LINK aspires to find common areas of interest and create a supportive community not only across artistic disciplines but also around the globe, and raise our voices together, within our national collective organizations and our national governments.”

As a first step, LINK is issuing this signature message, and invites everyone to use it as footnote of their emails, spreading it massively:

Respect and protect the Arts & Creative works - All work has value –
Protect a sustainable economy for creators now and tomorrow

A LINK website is under development.

LINK will take initiatives to sessions that are of interest to CISAC and its communities in order to produce relevant information and produce knowledge. Some of the topics to be discussed within LINK in future sessions are:

• Communication/information actions
• Alliances with international/regional bodies
• The balance of rights / constitutional rights, such as freedom of speech vs. freedom of creation.
• Changes of law, especially in China, India, Brazil.
• The way to protect rights
• The way to look at the future - how to conceive authors’ rights in the years to come.
• BRICS strategy
• Creative industry landscape

The fourth biennial World Creators Summit continues today, June 5, in Washington DC, with over 700 delegates from the creative, policymaking, rights organizations, tech and business communities from 75 countries coming together to discuss issues around creativity and copyright in the digital age. Updates from the event are posted at www.creatorssummit.com, including video of keynotes and panels. You can also follow the conversation on Twitter at #WCS13.

Jean-Michel Jarre: "There are no bad guys on one side of the web, the other artists victims"
Interview by Raphaële Karayan - posted on 06/06/2013 at 14:22
Jean-Michel Jarre was elected President of CISAC, an important international copyright lobby. For him, he must stop opposing the world of artists who would sclerotic than Google which is the only visionary. Maintenance.
Jean-Michel Jarre has been elected president of CISAC , the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers, the global network which brings together national collecting societies such as SACEM in France. The French musician was in Washington this week for the fourth World Creators Summit, which brings together artists, writers and representatives of various cultural industries companies (music, publishing, painting, sculpture ...) and addresses the particular problem of right copyright in the digital economy . We asked him about the meaning of his commitment and vision of the current problems.
What messages are you going to wear as the new President of CISAC?
There is such a confusion at all levels between the world of creation and new internet players it is time to successfully bring the debate in another way, in all the arts, not just music and cinema, and also globally, not just in Europe and the United States. Should already speak the exception of culture, not of the cultural exception. And the debate is not limited to copyright. For example, developing countries face every day intellectual and artistic looting. This is the case of design in Fiji, or the visual arts in Africa that were looted by the world of advertising and fashion, for example. We realize that this goes far beyond the music rights on YouTube ! I think it is somewhat rough and quick to say that one side is the "bad guys" who are represented by the internet and the other victims, the people of creation. It should not be regarded as either the only visionaries are the creators of phones, while artists are the ancient world.
What are the main objectives of the political lobbying that is part of the activities of the CISAC?
The role of Vice-Presidents (Angelique Kidjo, Ousmane Sow ...) is important, especially to represent the South. We must get to have a comprehensive and organized reflection lobbies in each country, so that it can be a real mobilization when there is a problem. Faced with global players, we need a global response.
What is your view of the discussions on the free trade agreement between Europe and the United States, in which the inclusion of the cultural exception is hotly debated ?
France has always been among the first to get up to find some answers for a sustainable creative economy. I'm here to help spread the French voice. I am in contact with the rapporteur in the U.S. Congress on the new copyright law, she understands this very well. There must be an ethical and moral in the system, which generates tens of millions of jobs. Responses should be international. France has always been a positive example.
As Hadopi example?
Hadopi is somehow a hiccup. These are the same people who invented the pirate radio and wanted to put hackers in jail. The coercive aspect was very questionable, however, the law was rather important in symbolic terms. Hadopi had merit, now we must move on. Basically, this is to stop opposing the artists sitting on their laurels with great Google and YouTube wicked.
What is the trend in the world in the fight against piracy: rather oriented sites that make it a lucrative business, as we saw with Megaupload , and less target consumers?
The fight against piracy is important, of course, but the real question is more fundamental and simple: Will we choose to respect the culture as a source of sustainable development, much like the environment? Our responsibility is not to be able to speak with one voice. We must bring this issue into the street. Do not be naive, political will mobilize from the moment where their constituents will.
You've long been invested in the fight for the copyright and the new challenges posed by the Internet. You have been especially spokesman IFPI 1998 to 2000, the time when we started to become aware of piracy. Have you changed your view on these issues since?
The problem of the relationship between the creation of the money has always been ambiguous, difficult, complicated. Today it is further complicated by technology, that changes everything, but basically it has not changed. What has changed in ten years is that today everyone has understood the problems posed by copying and free on the internet, including journalists, who are concerned. My belief today is that it is a real social challenge. That is why these issues should have the same exposure in the media that the wedding for all!
As an artist, what is your experience of the web and the best way to use it to spread its creation?
My music is closely related to electronics, I always welcome these changes with joy. The advice I would give to someone starting today, it's not over-use the Internet, Facebook, Twitter ... not too far. The thirst for free content thirsty creativity. We need to put internet in its place, such as a television, a telephone. I think the future punks take the internet scrub to return to social media when they have something to say.


Congratulations to President Jarre! :bravo:

Jean-Michel Jarre calls creators to action


Quote:
In a fiery keynote conversation that ended the World Creators Summit in Washington, DC (June 4 & 5), electronic music pioneer Jean-Michel Jarre rallied creators around the world to action, asking them to “shake the trees” and “restore our positive and dynamic image” by seizing the message of the intellectual property debate.

“We’re seen as old-fashioned, being seated on their pots of gold and scared of the future,” he lamented to his interviewers Edmund Lam (CEO & Director, COMPASS – Singapore) and Luciano Marchione (Director General, SAVA – Argentina). “We have to […] stop complaining and just go for it.”

Faced with the meteoric rise of internet businesses, founded by “kids who didn’t realise the kind of collateral damage they would create all over the world,” Jarre says there is only one way forward and that is to “convey a clear simple message on a global point of view.”

As for the perceived obstacles created by the digital shift, Jarre was unfazed. “I always considered authors’ rights as being quite timeless because it’s not linked to a physical support,” he said. “A smartphone is much less smart if you get rid of music, films, images, words, news and all the rest of our content. We are responsible for the smart part of smart phones and that should be taken into consideration.”

As candidate for the presidency of CISAC, he envisions transforming the Confederation into a “United Nations of Creators” where “we can push a button and have 20,000 artists signing a petition in 1 hour.”

Jarre posited that we may have a lot to learn from developing nations like China, Brazil and India, who are just beginning to wake up to the value of intellectual property laws, but who are able to implement laws with the current technologies already in place.

“Too often the conversation seems to be a dialogue between Europe and America,” he continued. “But when you think of aboriginal patterns or graphics from the Maori or Fiji constantly stolen by advertising agencies or fashion designers, we see that intellectual property is something much wider than just our problem in our countries and we have a lot to learn and give back to those territories.”

He sees CISAC as the ideal vehicle for a global mobilisation of creators, saying, “the beauty of an org such as CISAC it’s probably the first and only organisations gathering different sectors of creation and that’s the challenge for the new actors of the internet.”

In addition to looking to countries around the world, Jarre prescribed a partnership between creators and members the media, which have just now realised that they are in the same boat as far getting paid for their work. “This is a big advantage. Now it’s a matter of gathering forces with the media to put IP as a priority for everyone on the planet,” he concluded. “There is one word that can sum up what we’re talking about: Education, of ourselves, to the [people on the] street, to the public opinion. Then we solve the problem.”

The new CISAC President (2nd from left) and Vice Presidents shortly after their election.

Kanta - Thu Jun 06, 2013 9:55 pm



Jean-Michel Jarre, best known to the general public to be one of the pioneers of electronic music, has agreed to become the President of the International Confederation of Authors and Composers (CISAC). Met since Wednesday in Washington, members and employees of the organization have sought new ways to ensure that artists pay up to their creations. According to him, the new modes of communication called a revolution.

What CISAC?

CISAC is the International Confederation of composers author societies. It represents all the companies of Authors and Creators (about 260 companies) on five continents, in all folders (music, visual poetry, graphic and plastic arts ...).

It is an organization capable of uniting all actors arts world representing tens of millions of people so that they speak with one voice. It was founded in 1926 and is headquartered in France, Neuilly-sur-Seine.

Why did you accept his presidency this week in Washington?

I accepted this role CISAC is that I think the creators are primarily those that can best help to clarify the debate. Being creative, I have always been very sensitive to the defense of copyright.

There is a new issue between the rights of creators and intellectual property on one side and new players that are broadcast including ISPs. The issue of fair compensation for artists for all sectors of arts and creative: music, graphics and digital arts, film, literature, video games, journalism, etc..

All countries are affected?

It is a global issue that affects all countries of both hemispheres. That is why I am particularly pleased with the election with me four prestigious and internationally renowned artists: the Beninese singer Angelique Kidjo and creative, the director and filmmaker Marcelo Pineyro Argentine, poet, writer and lyricist Javed Akhtar and the Senegalese sculptor Ousmane Sow.

Is there a French specificity?

All authors in the world companies must evolve to bring them in line with the new economic challenges of creation, especially in the face to the digital world. We are fortunate to have in France Jean Noel Tronc, current CEO of SACEM, which is fully in line with these new challenges, national and international.

We share the same vision on the role that designers must play to take the floor, make the teaching and explain our very well known activity.

What will your role?

With four other artists Vice Presidents elected, we will be the mouthpiece and ambassadors millions of creators is CISAC in the world, to raise awareness and public to the reality of the work of artists powers.

It is the ideal forum to engage in the battle of ideas. Our diversity and representation in cultural, geographical and various arts we represent allow us to defend all the rights of creators and lead our work effectively worldwide.

Why do you think this fight is vital?

Because today, our insatiable appetite for free content starves creativity. The concept of intellectual property is not just a question of copyright payments. Respect for creation and the value of creative work is a cornerstone of our society.

Moreover, we must never forget that copyright is a contribution of the French Revolution and a human right, it is contained in Article 27 of the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen.

A "smartphone" is actually not that "smart" without the work of artists: painters, musicians, photographers, writers, filmmakers, journalists ... that enrich our lives and make our phones and tablets smarter.

Jean Michel Jarre will find music of oxygen in the green movement

Alfons Karabuda and Jean Michel Jarre. Photo: Kjell Holmstrand.

Alfie meets: Jean Michel Jarre - new Chairman of CISAC.

Jean Michel Jarre is a pioneer in electronic music. The breakthrough Oxygène has sold nearly 20 million copies worldwide. The album was also a post in the 1970's nascent environmental debate. Now like Jean Michel Jarre use their experience from the environmental movement in the role of president of CISAC.

Congratulations to the mission! We have mutual friends, and they all say that you are the right man for the job.

- Thank you! It is encouraging to hear. When I started making music, I never thought I would one day lead an organization with such an important mission as CISAC. It is an honor to do it.
I make music primarily for theater and film and has worked extensively with electronic music. You are a great inspiration to me personally and to many who engage in electronic music. How do you see the electronic music's position today?

- It has hardly been greater than today, and it forms a major part of the business in the music industry. Just look at the Electronic Dance Music. Yet it stands in many ways outside the work CISAC and other organizations are doing for music. I want to involve musicians that make electronic music in the work of artistic rights. There is a large group of young people in the genre who need to understand the industry's requirements and benefits of copyright.
So we try to do with ITY, getting new members of the younger generations. We encourage musicians like Swedish House Mafia and Avicii to participate and try to involve them in the SKAP work.

- It's good. It is important to involve all musicians, regardless of genre, and across both geographic and generational boundaries. Performing rights, and not least of copyright, should be a global concern. And it concerns not only musicians, but all creators. So the good Meden organization CISAC is that it has the potential to become a UN cultural creators, by collaborating with filmmakers, writers, artists, computer game developers, and so on.

There are a number of emerging markets where artistic rights had not been in focus, such as Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, the so-called BRICS. How do we meet the need to discuss the artistic rights there?

- It is essential to include all the new growth markets, of course BRICs, but also several other countries. In many countries on the African continent has not been able to protect themselves when, for example, advertising and fashion industries fetches cultural expression, without caring about the rights of indigenous people. This is about the moral and ethical issues that affect us all, entire communities, not just individuals. Therefore, we can not continue to try to solve the problems nationally. The development is so rapid that we need to work together to succeed.

Yes, it's about higher values. United Nations recently released a report on the artistic rights worldwide. The report shows just how artistic rights, like all human rights, affects us all and how they apply or should apply in Member States. The report also shows how copyright and freedom of expression are interrelated, for you to be able to protect your voice and expressions from exploitation. How can we reach out with messages of artistic rights?

- It is important to be clear. And you have to be long term. I have always been committed to the environment, see similarities with the green movement. When I wrote and released Oxygene was that we were talking about the environment as a bunch of dreamers, but step by step we were able to help everyone today is aware that we need to take care of our planet. The same applies to all forms of intellectual property today. We have the same situation as the environmental movement had thirty years ago and we need to just raise awareness of intellectual importance to us all.

It's interesting what you say. If we look at politics today is precisely the Greens who have the least understanding of intellectual importance for sustainable development.

- We all have a shared responsibility, just as the environmental movement's responsibility, and it is high time to just formulate clear messages. It is important that the public understand that this affects everyone in a community. Performing rights are the cornerstones of civilization and democracy.

But there are also those who believe that rights that copyright does not at all belong to the conditions for sustainable development, especially since the internet came into our lives.

- You have always, for better or worse, been a step ahead in Sweden and Scandinavia. You are perhaps the most web-savvy country in the world. While wearing Sweden the responsibility for parts of the "everything is free" attitude that came with the internet. Everything should be free and the internet is an Eldorado for culture. That attitude is not sustainable. And then there are the young people who remixes and creates amazing things and upload on YouTube - they are of course not evil. They are artists, but progress has been so fast and they have matured in so fast that they do not understand how their attitude can do damage.

What are the strong messages, then?

- We need to reverse the problem. It's about language, grammar and vocabulary. Those who develop the technology needs us. Remove music, movies, games and news from a smartphone and it is considerably less clever. We do content of various kinds are the ones that make a smartphone smart.

Content is central to most players on the Internet today. Digital services and markets need digital gaming rules. The EU wants to see a digital single market and a new directive on copyright societies are headed. Therefore gathered Europe's musicians in ECSA around a common voice, regardless of culture, genres, and differences in work processes. Now listen to the EU on us.

- It's good. Only by joining forces, from all continents, from North to South, from West to East, we can succeed. Sure, we have different challenges, but it's all ultimately about the same thing. Culture is the key to sustainable development. We are dealing with culture is not part of the problem, but part of the solution.

Most people know you as a electronic musician and your spectacular shows, but you also do music for film and successful lyricist. Are you working on that music creators even when you took over as president of CISAC?

- Yes, I have two new discs at once and believe it is important to be active as creators, to have direct contact with the issues that concern us, to be successful when it manages the work of an organization CISAC. It is to take responsibility for their task.

You were early musical as well as technological pioneer. What would a young Jean Michel Jarre have done today, though he started his career in 2013?

- He should have followed his own will and not listening so much on others. I try to keep a little distance to the internet, he would also have done. Internet is good once it is something to express or communicate. As an artist, he had worked with his art, his music, on their own, and only then turned the internet and the audience.

Some become slaves to technology instead of free thinkers and creators.

- Exactly. I have extensive experience of working in line with technological developments, from the beginning of my career. Over the years I have many times encountered strange ideas about what technology should be for. "You are not even real instruments" they said on the record company when I wanted to release my first album, and "your songs are ten minutes long, they can not be played on the radio." Technology should be made for man, not vice versa. I think we can accomplish much, only we find the right direction, also with new media.

CISAC President @ MPA (The Music Publishers Association) Annual General Meeting - The Royal Institution of Great Britain in London, UK - 25 June 2013.



PS Renamed this topic to try and cover all CISAC events. :wink:

Kanta - Thu Jul 11, 2013 2:36 pm

After the formal business was attended to, international electronic superstar and CISAC President Jean Michel Jarre took to the stage and spoke with determination about the need for a stronger voice from creators when speaking to consumers, the media and the world’s law makers. His mantra for the need to retain value in music was neatly encapsulated when he said “a smart phone without the creative input is no longer smart!”, highlighting that the value smartphones , tablets and other new devices have comes from the content, not the gadget itself. Jarre spoke too about his plans to transform CISAC and the role of publishers in his professional life.

Towards the end of the conversation, Stephen Navin and Chris Butler presented Jean Michel with a score of Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring. This new edition, produced to mark the centenary of the work, is an autograph of Stravinsky’s original manuscript. Jarre has previously attributed a live performance of “The Rite of Spring” to his “musical awakening”.

I have no idea, this is only a suggestion. Most important thing Jarre has to deal now with is to try to make creators live out of their art. I guess it's what this topic was about some time ago.

Yes, "moi" means "me". He has thus made ​​his own music for free use only. That's nice. Some artists do such a thing. For a variety of reasons. He is committed against the theft of intellectual property, which I find well worth supporting.

Round table "Copyright and the financing of creation in the digital era"

Introduction : Michel Barnier, European Commissioner for internal market and services

A legacy of the Enlightenment, copyright guarantees that creators are remunerated, that cultural industries are viable and is ultimately an essential condition of cultural diversity. However, the new digital environment is placing copyright under great pressure, with its effectiveness being called into question, its legitimacy being challenged by large sections of the population and major changes in the distribution of value among artists, producers and broadcasters. How can we ensure that the debate which is beginning in Europe about modernizing copyright consolidates its contribution to the creative economy? How can we encourage new business models and meet public expectations while preserving the rights and remuneration of creators? How can we include all digital actors in its effective implementation?

President Jean Michel Jarre heralds copyright protection at the Forum de Chaillot

To promote a strong European strategy for culture » was the objective of the Forum de Chaillot, a conference organised by the French Minister of Culture and Communications Aurélie Filippetti on April 4-5. On the morning of the first day, the Ministers of Culture from 15 member states of the European Union gathered in Paris, together with the Ministers of Culture from Switzerland and Ukraine, for a unique picture.

Under the banner “Future of Culture, Future of Europe”, the forum attracted more than 1,200 artists, academics, policy makers, professionals and journalists from the creative, cultural and digital industries.

During the event, contributors exchanged views on the importance of creative industries for the future of Europe and rallied to define a common European strategy to foster artistic creativity, cultural diversity and economic growth.

CISAC President Jean Michel Jarre was one of the first to add his voice to the discussion. Along with other legendary creators such as Peter Brook, Costa-Gavras, Blanca Li and Macha Makeïeff, Jarre launched the “artist’s appeal” that called for “a new Europe for Culture” and via an online petition, has already been signed by over 50 internationally recognised creators.

When discussions moved to copyright, CISAC President’s comments were again well received and widely reported. In a roundtable on “the role of copyright in funding creativity in the digital age”, Jarre along with ASACP CEO Paul Williams, delivered a rousing speech.

Jarre stated that culture was key to sustainable development in our societies. He invited the audience to keep in mind that, in many families, “a son or a daughter was dreaming of becoming a musician, a film maker or a graphic artist”. He called on creators to take a more pro-active stance in the copyright debate to enable the next generation to live from their art. Underlining that most of the value in digital devices today – such as smart phones – comes from the creative content they convey, he stated that creators could be considered “virtual shareholders” of Internet giants. He stressed that digital executives also love creative content, such as music, films, and pictures, and so he invited them to work with rights holders to invent new, fair business models that would enable creators to live from their art and continue to enrich the world with their creations. Firmly opposing any attempt to shorten the length of copyright protection, he promoted the idea of an “eternal author’s right” that would help provide adequate funding to all creators. As many countries around the world, including China and Africa, are looking at Europe to model their legislation on copyright, he stressed the importance of keeping intact Europe’s legal arsenal on copyright. Finally, he pleaded in favor of private copying and against the multiplication of copyright exceptions.

In a very moving speech, Paul Williams recalled the early days of his career. He explained how author’s right, an idea that originated in Europe, was adopted in the United States in the 19th century, enabling creators such as himself to make a living when he started writing songs. He emphasize that he had been able to devote his life to his passion – song writing – because strong copyright legislation and collective management were at hand in the United States.

CISAC General Assembly, London - 6 June 2014

“We are at the Heart of the Digital Economy” - CISAC President Jean Michel Jarre crafts a New Narrative at the Organisation's 2014 General Assembly in London

Creators and representatives of authors’ societies from around the world gathered in London on June 6 for CISAC’s annual General Assembly. Held in London to mark PRS for Music’s 100th anniversary, this was the biggest CISAC General Assembly to date, with over 250 participants from more than 100 countries.

The Assembly opened with Chairperson of the Board Eric Baptiste welcoming the guests and introducing renowned musician and CISAC President, Jean Michel Jarre. Taking the stage immediately, Jarre delivered a passionate keynote speech that highlighted the great advancements made in the past year but also noted the work still to do.

“I have learned a lot about what the world’s decision makers think of us and we must adopt a new way of thinking,” said Jarre. “We are at the heart of the digital economy and have to regain the attention, sympathy and support of the public.”

Jarre’s new approach called for a proactive lobbying for fair remuneration for creators, and an end to the conception of Internet distributers as the enemy. He stated that “we should consider creators as virtual stakeholders in these [internet] companies”. He also called for continued focus on private copying levies as an important source of revenue for creators, especially in emerging economies. He added that creators should “make noise” in the press and in social media channels.

CISAC’s General Counsel Gadi Oron spoke next, giving an overview of the president’s tireless year of campaigning. Listing Jarre’s public appearances, interviews and written statements on behalf of CISAC, Oron stressed the huge contribution made and gave some indication of activities planned for the year ahead.

The stage was then handed over to the creators. In a panel titled “World Creative Revolution”, a group of creators from different regions and repertoires discussed a new narrative for CISAC. French screenwriter and chair of Writers & Directors Worldwide, Yves Nilly spoke first and highlighted the importance of solidarity and of communicating the creative results of CISAC’s work and the social good that they do around the world. Next, Werner Stauffacher from the International Council of Creators of Graphic, Plastic and Photographic Art (CIAGP) spoke about how vital it is to demonstrate efficiency and transparency as we seek out a path through the new business models being developed today. ASACP president and Grammy award winning songwriter Paul Williams delivered a rousing speech that focused on the importance of advocacy, passionately delivered “from the centre of our chests” in order to find fair solutions. Lorenzo Ferrero, Italian composer and chair of CIAM, the International Council of Music Authors, gave three proposals that the confederation could pursue right now including a focus on cultural rather than financial promotion, the global adoption of private copying levies and the need to find more creators willing to step up and engage in the debate. Finally, Chilean composer Alejandro Guarello highlighted the global nature of CISAC’s work and the challenges faced in Africa and Latin America. He emphasised that mutual respect between creators was the vital foundation of our cause. Jean Michel Jarre concluded the discussion by reminding guests that creators that they, and their CMOs, should fight the perception that royalty collections are a sort of tax duty. CISAC chairman Eric Baptiste closed the session by clarifying the key objectives of CISAC’s work before turning to the floor for a lively Q&A session.

Next to speak was Mr Shunichi Tokura, Chairman of the Japanese Society for Rights of Authors, Composers and Publishers (JASRAC). He provided insight into the challenges faced by creators in Japan, the second biggest musical market after the USA, which still has only a 50 rather than 70 year copyright extension. He also sought the support of other societies in eliminating the wartime prolongation period, in exchange for extension of the term of protection.

The meeting moved on to a review of the proposals for committee reform and amendments to the CISAC statutes before a very full agenda of repertoire and regional reports from CISAC’s leadership team. Mr Nilly, Stauffacher and Ferrero returned to the stage to show the progress made in their creators’ councils, particularly highlighting the new independent online presence that each had set up prior to their appointment as formal observers at WIPO. Then, speaking on Africa, Asia-Pacific, North America, Central and Eastern Europe and Central Asia, and Latin America and the Caribbean were CISAC’s regional directors: Balamine Ouattara, Benjamin Ng, Eric Baptiste (as Chair of the North American Committee), Mitko Chatalbashev and Santiago Schuster respectively. Their reports demonstrated the tremendous progress being made in these regions and emphasised the global nature of the organisation.

The Vice Chair of CISAC’s Executive Governance Council, Marisa Gandelman, spoke on the admittance of new societies before handing over to Finance and Governance Director Anne Fortier to report upon the status of activities in these departments.

WIPO Inaugurates New Conference Hall

Quote:
GENEVA – The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) Director General Francis Gurry, high-level members of the Swiss and Geneva governments, and the international intellectual property (IP) community inaugurated WIPO’s new Conference Hall Monday evening in a celebration that transformed the speakers’ dais into a soundstage featuring globally renowned musicians, a press release by the Organization stated.

...

French electronic music composer Jean-Michel Jarre, President of the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers (CISAC), helped open the new center with a call to help creators.

"Creators around the world depend on rights and policies that protect their interests and guarantee a fair remuneration for them,” he said. “WIPO is where such rights and policies are discussed and agreed internationally. As President of CISAC, I call upon all WIPO member states to recognize the importance of creativity, not only to our culture, but also as a driver of global economic development. Now is the time to develop new and fruitful partnerships between creators, WIPO and its member states, leading to initiatives that would ensure a sustainable future for creators."

World-renowned Creators Call on Policymakers to Take Action at UN's WIPO General Assembly

Musicians, film directors, screenwriters and visual artists stress the need to protect creators' rights in the shifting paradigm of the digital age

Paris, France – 24th September 2014 - For the first time, the UN’s World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) welcomed internationally-renowned creators to speak at their 54th General Assemblies.

Organised by the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers (CISAC), a panel discussion included an international delegation of creators who came to the United Nations agency to discuss the most pressing issues facing creators worldwide today — how to achieve a fair and sustainable creative ecosystem in the digital age, the importance of respecting creators’ rights and the urgent need for an open dialogue with all stakeholders, in particular key players from the digital sector.

Addressing a room of ministers, ambassadors and diplomats, Francis Gurry, Director General of WIPO, emphasised the pivotal role that the organization plays in shaping international intellectual property rules: “Against the background of profound change in the digital environment, there has never been a more suitable time to discuss how to ensure a sustainable future for authors and composers,” said Gurry. “It is therefore fitting that WIPO hosts this discussion, and we are grateful to CISAC for assembling a culturally diverse panel of international renown to discuss a topic important for us all.”

He also stressed the importance of creativity as a source of economic development, especially in developing countries, a position echoed by a study published by CISAC prior to WIPO’s General Assembly. Titled “The Creative Industries and the BRICS”, the study highlights the tremendous potential within the largest developing economies (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) to increase their creative industries’ contribution to job creation, sustainable business models and a healthy economy. It also lays out a comprehensive action plan for policymakers to provide supportive measures for creative industries in these countries.

Jean Michel Jarre, internationally renowned electronic music composer and President of CISAC was joined by visual artist Hervé Di Rosa, also from France, Angèle Diabang, Senegalese film director, Eddie Schwartz, Canadian songwriter, Vinod Ranganath, Indian playwright, screenwriter and director and Daphna Levin, Israeli screenwriter and director.

Mr. Jarre raised several key issues, in particular the need to develop innovative business models that fairly remunerate creators and open the doors to new partnerships with the digital sector. He pointed out that creators are at the centre of the digital economy and that developing sustainable business models with digital intermediaries is essential. “We creators are pro-technology. We embrace it and welcome the wider access to culture that digital devices and services afford the public, and the opportunity to reach wider audiences that technology affords creators. But we need business models that make sense to all parties,” he said.

Speaking on the need for a solid legal framework on which to build the creative economy, Mr. Jarre said, “Creators and policymakers have an opportunity to work together to shape policies that reflect the intrinsic value of the creative industries, ensuring fair remuneration and, by extension, a sustainable and dynamic growth for each stakeholder of the creative chain, from the artist to the distributor.”

Ms. Diabang agreed, pointing out that a favourable legislative framework in Europe can act as an example of what should be done elsewhere, but if creators’ rights are weakened and undervalued in the European arena, the reverberations will be felt throughout the world.

Mr. Di Rosa addressed the importance of the resale right for visual artists, signalling the urgent need for a new international treaty on this issue. This treaty should make the resale right mandatory around the world, to ensure that visual artists, no matter where they live or where their works are sold, can earn a percentage from the resale of their work.

Highlighting the relative weakness of creators’ bargaining positions as individuals, both Mr. Ranganath and Ms. Levin spoke about the importance of collective management of rights and the vital role that collective management organisations (CMOs) play — and must continue to play — in protecting the rights of creators and ensuring their interests are promoted.

Mr. Schwartz focused on fair remuneration for creators, and specifically, how to develop fair and sustainable compensation models while ensuring that the business of digital partners is not unduly put at risk. That question is at the centre of a new study commissioned by the music creators alliance Music Creators North America (MCNA) and endorsed by CISAC. The study’s findings will be published during the Congress of the International Council of Music Authors (CIAM) in Nashville, Tennessee on October 22 and 23, 2014.

"Geneva, 23 September 2014 (David Wagnières)

"The copyright concerns everyone"

Jean Michel Jarre: "My mother was tough during the war. It taught me respect for freedom.

Electronic music composer Jean Michel Jarre chairs the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers (CISAC), which meets 3 million creators worldwide. He was invited by the World Intellectual Property Organization in Geneva.

Jean Michel Jarre, the man who made the spacey synthesizers instruments with his album Oxygen in 1976, one that started in the 1980s mega-concerts with light and sound in Beijing, Cairo, Gdansk, Houston who collects records Guinness Book for the largest number of viewers (2.5 million Defense in Paris in 1990), is also a strong supporter of copyright. President of the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers (CISAC), he was in Geneva this week, invited by the World Intellectual Property Organization, for a roundtable discussion on the rights of creators in the digital age.

- What ideas do you defend within CISAC?

Jean Michel Jarre: Faced with the changes wrought by the Internet over the last fifteen years, designers have not been able to send a clear message to the public. Our vision was seen as cautious from major Internet players. So much so that we ended up with a paradox: people who today represent modernity are manufacturers of cables and telephones and creators are those who look in the mirror. It's surreal. These are the designers who have always rocked the company.

- What is your message in this context?

- The issue of respect copyright goes far beyond a simple economic issue. The real issue is: what place do we want to give artists the twenty-first century? Remuneration and the way they are going to live or not is not an issue concerning niche but, on the contrary, the whole of society. Do we want our children and grandchildren can still listen to music or become musicians themselves, or not? Will always be read, listen, see works that move us, help us to live, question authority and habits? The challenges are there. This is where the intellectual property concerns everyone. Copyright is also fundamental in the relationship between North and South.

- That is to say?

- The weakening of intellectual property resulting weakening of cultural identity emerging countries and all economically fragile communities. This is the intellectual property that allows a community to develop its know-how, designs, crafts, heritage and not to depend on the creation of others. When the world of fashion, without knowing most of the time, plundered by Aboriginal and Maori motifs without paying anything just because you do not know the authors, it is every time a community that is weakens. Respect copyright must enable communities in the South not to be relegated to the status of mere consumers of cultural goods from the North. The problem is ethical and moral.

- There are fifteen years, the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) went to war against Web players accused of pirating the works. She commenced trial on trial. In retrospect, this reaction was appropriate?

- I was the spokesman for the IFPI at that time. We had to put out a fire: some Internet players thought that copyright was more valuable, it was completely backwards. It was necessary to act quickly. While the knee-jerk reaction IFPI has been very important to indicate that there was a problem. At the time, the media were largely on the side of the pirates. The tendency was to say to the creators: What are you complaining about? If your works are pirated, they are more widely available!

- You always hear this argument in the public ...

- That's not to understand that piracy kills creativity. Copyright allows the sustainable development of the arts. There are fifteen, the worn look on the Internet was still very naive, almost hippie, it was a wonderful place where everyone is held by the hand on the road to free expression. In response, we have not found the words to make us understand. Today, the Internet has changed look at the scandal of the NSA has been there. Another change is that the musicians are joined now by audiovisual creators and journalists who see their work used on digital platforms without their consent.

- Today, streaming replaced by paid subscription piracy. It's better, right?

- I am in full agreement with the subscription's system the day when I can also pay a monthly subscription to Carrefour and fill my cart on. Without designers, streaming sites would not exist. We must remind players that the Net in smartphones, the smart part, it is the creators!

Jean Michel Jarre on Culture, Creators and the Tech Industry
September 2014
By Catherine Jewell, Communications Division, WIPO

The digital revolution has radically transformed the creative industries, offering many new ways to tap into the cultural scene and reach global audiences. As consumers, we enjoy access to an ever-expanding choice of music, we can engage directly with our favorite artist through social media sites, and as music streaming and subscription services become mainstream, and the number of online recommendation services grows, we enjoy unprecedented opportunities for discovering new music.

While this is good news for industry and consumers, what does it all mean for creators?

According to a recent report by the International Confederation of Authors and Composers Societies (CISAC), worldwide royalty collections rose to a record high of 7.8 billion euros in 2012, but digital revenues, which amounted to 301 million euros that year, still only represent 4 percent of overall global collections. This suggests that creators are not getting a fair share of the digital market. Electronic music pioneer and champion of creators’ rights, Jean Michel Jarre, President of CISAC, believes artists need a new deal; one in which creators are on a more equal footing with the tech giants – the hardware manufacturers and the content carriers – whose ingenuity is fuelling the expansion of the online world. The musician shares his views about the importance of intellectual property (IP) and the need for the tech industry and creators to work together for mutual benefit to foster sustainable cultural development.

Despite the positive dynamics currently witnessed in the music industry, the threat of online piracy is ever present; something Jean Michel Jarre believes calls for a redoubling of efforts to improve the public’s understanding and awareness of IP.

"We need to send a clear message to the street that intellectual property is not just important for artists, it affects every single family with a son, a daughter, a brother or a sister dreaming of becoming a writer, a photographer, a musician, a film maker.

“If we don’t respect the rights of creators and give appropriate value to their work” he said “books will not be written and films and music will not be made”. “We will miss opportunities for future masterpieces… we need the next Fellini, the next Beethoven and the next Garcia Marquez.”

Creators are important to our future

“It’s far beyond a few artists sitting on their pot of gold trying to keep their advantages,” he continued, noting the broader social and economic benefits that can flow from robust IP rights. “We have to recognize that creators are a very important part of our future. Creation and all art forms make up the soul and the identity of a country, there is no sustainable development if there is no sustainable economy for creation.”

"Protect, invent, transmit − the future of culture depends on authors’ rights."
- Antón Patiño – painter – Spain

"Authors’ rights are the salary of the creator"
- Monné Bou – visual artist – Ivory Coast

"Authors’ rights are really about respect"
- Baz Luhrmann – film director – Australia

Underlining the vital economic contribution of creators, he said, “millions of jobs are created by artists all over the world. We forget they create lots of employment.” Stressing that creators play an integral part in a nation’s social, economic and cultural development, he noted, “we need to stop considering that music is like wallpaper” and “have to work together to define a sustainable economy for our culture.”

Copyrights fundamental importance

While, in some circles, the whole idea of copyright and the need to finance creation is being questioned, the artist observed that many emerging countries, including China, are recognizing copyright “not only as a stimulant for economic growth but also as the best way to export their culture and to reinforce their identity.”

Despite the huge opportunities created by the Internet in terms of accessing content, and the increasing appetite for free content, Mr. Jarre underlined the importance of finding ways for creators to be able to earn a living from their work. “Free access is one thing, but the economy of that free access is something else,” he explained. Drawing a parallel with existing arrangements with radio broadcasters, he noted, “when you listen to the radio, you listen to music for free, it’s not illegal, and artists get paid because the rights have been paid on top by the radio station, by the network. We should recognize now that everybody – and especially those commercial entities whose business it is to carry creative content - should pay.”

Underlining the fundamental importance of copyright, he countered the argument that copyright and authors’ rights are barriers to education. “It’s exactly the reverse,” he said. “You can have access to education only if you have books. To have books you need a system that rewards authors and encourages them to write these books. It’s totally naïve to think that free access will solve education challenges. It’s the exact opposite. Free access would discourage the creation of education materials. This idea that we are all brothers and sisters and should exchange everything for free is a fallacy. Nothing is ever free and if it is, it will always favor the richest.”

A new deal for creators

Mr. Jarre believes creators and artists need to engage with content carriers to carve out a new deal for themselves in the ever-expanding digital economy. This, he claims is the only way to safeguard their long-term interests and to secure sustainable cultural development.

He believes the time is now ripe to sit down with telecoms companies, hardware manufacturers and digital content distributors to work out a balanced and reasonable business model that works for creators. “They need us as much as we need them,” he noted, highlighting the fact that artists are, in fact, in a much stronger negotiating position than they think. It is their work that is contributing to the economic success and power of high-tech giants who themselves face challenges arising from the shifting sands of the market and public opinion.

“The people making the most money from what we create are not consumers but the people carrying our content. They are not paying what they should pay. Our content makes their fortunes and gives them their power. It’s like a company not paying its shareholders.” Artists, he said, should be treated as equal partners and remunerated as such. “We are not talking about a tax or a contribution - we are not beggars - we are business partners with Google, Facebook, with all these other businesses that make fortunes from providing access to our content. At the end of the day, it’s quite simple, the money is somewhere and there are people deserving this money, so we have to sit around a table and find a solution, and we’ll find it.”

“We have to create a new business model for the new media and the new distribution networks,” he said. “We need to stop considering the big actors of the Internet as our enemies. These guys didn’t exist 20 years ago, they were kids who created great concepts that became so big, so fast, they didn’t have time to realize the potential collateral damage they were creating. They are friends of creators much more than we think.”

As President of CISAC, Mr. Jarre is committed to promoting authors’ rights around the world. Although musicians regularly take up political and social causes, they have been noticeably silent in fighting their own corner. “This is why our sector is so vulnerable. Creators are full of doubts and uncertainty. The most difficult thing for an artist is to evaluate his or her work. When it comes to finance or business, it’s very difficult for creators to defend themselves and to speak out.”

Despite, the challenges relating to changing public perceptions about the importance of IP and creating a 21st century business model that works for creators, Mr. Jarre is upbeat about the future. “The creative sector is far stronger than artists themselves think. Artists and creators existed before electricity and they will exist long after the Internet.”

“My goal is to make both creators and citizens, ambassadors of intellectual property.” While at first sight this seems a daunting task, Jean Michel Jarre is optimistic about his chances of success. “How many people say they would have loved to be a musician, a film maker or a writer but some social or economic reason prevented them from doing so? We have to improve this, we have to encourage people to create and we have to establish the conditions that promise creative people a reward for their creativity in the digital world. We are in the 21st century and need to get this right,” he said. “As musicians we know how to make a noise, so let’s do it!”

Jean Michel Jarre known artists and politicians to unite to defend the rights of creators.

GENEVE- (Switzerland) - After exceptional Ismael Lô in its new location, WIPO has enabled internationally renowned designers to speak at its 54th Assembly of member states. Under the auspices of the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers (CISAC), chaired by Jean-Michel Jarre, a panel discussion of various designers helped expose the most pressing challenges the world designers are issues face: the establishment of an equitable and sustainable ecosystem for the creation in the digital age, the importance of respecting the rights of creators and the urgency to establish an open dialogue with all stakeholders dialogue, including the digital sector.

This panel brought together an outstanding selection of internationally renowned artists who have appeared on the need to ensure, for the creators of the world, a just, viable and equitable remuneration, particularly in the digital age. Indeed these artists are able to continue to create and live their art.

In the discussion which was attended by ministers and ambassadors, Francis Gurry, Director General of WIPO, focused on the central role played by his organization in the direction of international rules on intellectual property: "In a context of profound changes related to the digital environment, it has never been so appropriate to examine how to ensure a sustainable future for writers and composers, "he would say and point out:" It is therefore entirely appropriate that WIPO welcomes this debate and thank CISAC for bringing together a group of internationally renowned designers, who represents the culture in all its diversity, to discuss an important topic for all of us."

For his part, Jean Michel Jarre, composer of electronic music known worldwide and President of CISAC has addressed several key issues, including the need to develop innovative business models ensuring fair compensation to creators, and open the door to new partnerships with the digital sector. 'We have nothing against the creators of new technologies. We adhere to and we are delighted that the digital devices and services allow the public to have greater access to culture, just as they give creators the opportunity to reach a wider audience. However, we need business models that serve the interests of all parties, "he pleaded. Speaking on the need for a strong legal framework on which to build the creative economy, Mr. Jarre added: "Designers and policy makers have the opportunity to work together to develop policies that do justice the intrinsic value of creative industries, ensuring fair compensation and, by extension, sustainable and dynamic growth at every link in the chain of creation of the artist to the distributor."

Seconded by Angela Diabang, Senegalese filmmaker, Jean Michel Jarre also had at his side, Eddie Schwartz, Canadian songwriter, Vinod Ranganath, playwright, screenwriter and director of India and Daphna Levin, Israeli writer and director.

In a note to the press, noted that CISAC led by Jean Michel Jarre is an association which indirectly represents 3 million creators from all geographic areas and all artistic works. With a network of 230 authors' societies in 120 countries, it protects the rights and promotes the interests of creators and their heirs.

"On behalf of CISAC and the three million creators we represent around the world, I would like to offer my heartfelt condolences and support to the families of the people who died today in this horrific attack. They paid a high price for exercising a fundamental right -- the right to create freely and express through satire their views on the world.

Satire is one of the highest and most ancient forms of creative endeavour and one that, obviously, stands in the way of ideological barbarism. We are all Charlie today."

China : Opening of the New Asia-Pacific Regional Office


Quote:
On January 15, 2014, CISAC opened its new Asia-Pacific Regional Office in Beijing at a high profile ceremony that was attended by Chinese officials, CISAC leaders, and representatives from authors' societies across the region.


Quote:
CISAC successfully opened its new Asia-Pacific Regional Office in Beijing on January 15, 2014. The opening ceremony was attended by 180 guests, including high-level officials from the National Copyright Administration, NPC Legislative Affairs Committee, Supreme People’s Court, China Intellectual Property Society, China Trademark Association and China Copyright Protection Center; Chinese creators from the China Federation of Literary and Art Circles (CFLAC) and other Chinese artist associations; renowned academics; Asian publishers; diplomats; and representatives of nearly all of CISAC’s Asia-Pacific authors’ societies. The opening event was followed by a well-attended seminar on copyright and collective management, organised by CISAC.

The regional office, which had previously operated out of Singapore, coordinates CISAC’s activities in the Asian market and provides significant support to the region’s network of collective management organisations. It is headed by CISAC’s Regional Director for Asia-Pacific, Benjamin Ng.

In a keynote address at the opening ceremony, CISAC President Jean Michel Jarre—who was the first Western pop musician to play in post-Mao mainland China — thanked the Chinese government for its support, saying “we are encouraged by the positive collaboration we’ve had thus far and are excited to partner with China as it unlocks the huge potential of its creative economy.”

CISAC’s Director General Olivier Hinnewinkel emphasised in his speech the importance of recognising and protecting creators’ rights in China and across the region. He called the opening of the Beijing Office “the beginning of a new era,” and praised the National Copyright Administration of China (NCAC) as “a valuable partner for CISAC.”

Over 40 journalists from both Chinese and foreign news outlets covered the events, including the major Chinese newspaper, The People’s Daily. Jean Michel Jarre and Olivier Hinnewinkel participated in a dialogue program on national Chinese television CCTV entitled "China's Copyrights Controversy". The 30-minute TV show was broadcasted 4 times in February on CCTV-news. To watch the show, click on the link: http://english.cntv.cn/pr...0/101068.shtml.

CISAC 2015 Global Collections Report: Royalties Remain Stable At $8.8 Billion




Quote:
Royalties collected by the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers (CISAC) on behalf of songwriters, composers and creators worldwide totalled €7.8 billion ($8.8 billion) in 2013, according to the organization's 2015 Global Collections Report, published today (Feb. 10).

The report analyses worldwide revenues, 87% of which are music-related, collected over 2013 by over 230 societies across 120 territories and representing more than 3 million creators across music, drama, literature and visual arts.

Standout figures include 2.4% growth in performing rights royalties, which crossed the €6 billion ($6.8 billion) barrier for the first time and accounted for 78% of total revenues. A 25% rise in digital royalties also contributed to the €7.8 billion total, which was marginally lower (down 0.8%) than the previous year's figure.



However, CISAC points out that when 2012 revenues are measured at the current Euro rate, excluding the impact of foreign exchange fluctuations, overall royalty collections increased 4.6% year-on-year.

In addition to a spike in digital royalties, contributing factors include a 30% rise in revenues from the BRICS economies, which totalled €365 million ($413 million). Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa now generate €1 million ($1.1 million) per day, the report states, although it adds that collections per head of population (€0.12/$0.14 per head) is much lower in the BRICS territories than the world average (€1.30/$1.50).

Latin America and the Caribbean region also reported 17% growth to total €514 million ($582 million), while worldwide audio visual royalties were up 8% on the previous year. However, that growth was offset by a 13% fall in reproduction (mechanical) rights, which totalled €1.4 billion ($1.6 billion), down from €1.6 billion ($1.8 billion) the previous year, and accounted for 18% of all collections.

In line with previous years, Europe remains the largest geographic region for collections, accounting for just over 60% of total royalties with year-on-year growth of 2.3%. The second largest region was Canada-U.S. (16.3%, unchanged from 2012), followed by Asia-Pacific (15.8%), Latin America & Caribbean (6.6%) and Africa (0.7%).

"Overall, the report's findings are very encouraging," Gadi Oron, director general of CISAC tells Billboard. "If you ignore the fluctuation with the exchange rates, we are reporting 4.6% growth, which is quite impressive, especially in light of the economic situation in different markets across the world."

Oron cites the 25% climb in digital royalties as a positive indication of future growth, although concedes the relatively minor year-on-year jump from digital representing 4% of total collections in 2012 to 5% in 2013 means "that there is a lot that can be still be done."

"5% of overall worldwide collections coming from the digital market is good, but it's not good enough," he says. "We want to make sure that our societies generate more from this market and help them with different initiatives in term of lobbying, in terms of support and training and improving their capacities around the world."

Oron's views were echoed by composer and CISAC president Jean Michel Jarre.

"Creators are the singular force behind the works – films, paintings, songs, books, poems, pictures – that millions around the world enjoy. Yet we are often at the mercy of groups that control the channels of distribution of our works," said Jarre in a foreword to the Global Collections Report 2015.

He continued: "This is acutely felt in today's digital ecosystem where creators are the most fragile element. For this reason, we rely heavily on our authors' societies and CISAC to take care of our interests. Alone, we are vulnerable, but when we combine our strengths, via the societies that represent us and protect our works, we have a voice."

Collective management of copyright: CISAC impatient about Internet files

Published 2 March 2015

The International Confederation of Authors and Composers (CISAC), chaired by the musician Jean-Michel Jarre, impatient on digital revenues "represent only 5% of the total." Member, SACEM always advocated a tax on hosts.

"We thank you often at companies that control the distribution channels of our works. The current digital environment, whose creators are the most fragile players, we made the badly needed, "says the pioneer of electronic music Jean-Michel Jarre (photo), president since June 2013 CISAC, which represents a total of Worldwide, more than 3 million beneficiaries, music creators and songs for the most (87.2% of revenue), but also films, books, paintings, poems or illustrations.

Jean-Michel Jarre against plague Internet

Overall, 230 collecting societies members of CISAC - which was created in 1926 and moved to France in Neuilly-sur-Seine, near the SACEM who is a member - have collected all together more than 7.7 billion for the year 2013 (the overall balance with a lag of a year).

But this year, the impatience of CISAC is perceptible on the amounts received from the digital world. "The rights relating to digital increased by 25% but still represent only 5% of total global perceptions," says CEO of Confederation, Gadi Oron. The "digital & multimedia" (dixit terminology CISAC) reported for the year of € 380 million.

CISAC President Jean Michel Jarre calls for “a Europe that protects creation” – 12 March 2015

Jean Michel Jarre shares his concerns about Europe’s copyright agenda.

French electronic music composer and CISAC President Jean Michel Jarre today called on European Union decision-makers to support a European project that will ensure the protection of creative works and guarantee a fair remuneration for all stakeholders, particularly authors.

In a video address at the ‘Auteurs & Co’ conference organised in Paris by authors rights’ society SCAM (Société Civile des Auteurs Multimedia), CISAC’s President expressed his concerns about the European Commission and the European Parliament outlined plans regarding copyright harmonisation and the creation of a Single Digital Market.

The event explored the current copyright issues facing Europe, including the role of the cultural industries today, copyright policy for the digital revolution and the future of copyright.

“I invite European decision-makers to fully measure the impact of any change in future legislations in the field of copyright. Let's not forget that the idea of authors' rights has its roots in Europe. It would be hard to believe that the continent that introduced this truly innovative concept would also be its gravedigger,” Jarre said, adding that recent events were “very worrying”.

“Once again, creators have the feeling that they are going to be the victims of economic pragmatism and European dogmatism,” he said.

“Harmonisation, yes, but one that would pull the market upwards, not one to satisfy the short-term needs of internet giants, most of which are not European, and, when operating in Europe, have often questionable fiscal behaviours.”

Speaking at the Auteurs & Co event, French Minister for Culture and Communications Fleur Pellerin said that “Preserving the diversity of European creation is a fundamental stake in a globalised economy”.

"We know that the diversity of European creation is its greatest asset," she told the crowd.

"France is driven by a strong conviction that a single market does not mean a standardized culture. This is what is at stake with the French cultural exception. France is fighting on behalf of all European cultures. Asserting that culture is not a commodity like any other is recalling the foundation of the European project," she said.

On Wednesday, during the Council of Ministers, Fleur Pellerin presented the government's strategy and action plan to fight against piracy of creative works on the Internet.
In the European debate on the modernization of authors’ rights, the French Government is determined to seek efficient solutions to prevent and repress online piracy be defined, involving all economic players in the digital market.

The International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers (CISAC) has paid tribute to its former President, Jean-Loup Tournier, who passed away today.

“Jean-Loup was a true friend of creators. He was a relentless advocate for our rights.”

“Jean-Loup was a true friend of creators,” said current CISAC President Jean Michel Jarre. “No one has done more than he to enhance the rights of creators in France and around the world. Both at SACEM and at CISAC, he was a relentless advocate for our rights. I am deeply saddened to hear that he is no longer with us. On behalf of the global community of creators, I want to express here my deepest condolences and sympathies to his family.”

Creators call upon the United Nations for a fairer creative eco-system - 27 April 2015



Picture: Jens Koch Fotografie

On the occasion of the World Intellectual Property Day, Jean-Michel Jarre, President of the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers (CISAC), issued the following statement on behalf of the four million creators represented by CISAC members.

"The article 27(2) of the 'Universal Declaration of Human Rights,' adopted by the United Nations’ General Assembly in 1948, states that, 'Everyone has the right to the protection of the moral and material interests resulting from any scientific, literary or artistic production of which he is the author'," says Jean Michel Jarre.

"These words are as valid now as they were 70 years ago. Culture is what brings people together and is the expression of the cultural diversity that is so cherished by the United Nations and UNESCO. Access to culture is paramount to the elevation of mankind. It goes hand in hand with freedom of speech and freedom to create.

"Equally important in our eyes are the rights of creators. Without these moral and economic rights, creators would be deprived of ways to sustain a living and continue to create freely, and would also lose control over the use of their works.

"But for this to happen, creators need to be granted fair remuneration for the use of their creative works. In the music sector, we have launched the Fair Trade Music project to address this issue. In the visual arts sector, we are asking for an international Treaty on the artist’s resale right under the aegis of WIPO.

"Sustainable creative eco-systems depend on the recognition that creative works bring value to so many businesses that would not exist without them. In return, what we, creators, are asking is simple: to be fairly compensated for the use of our works and to be protected for our rights. We are calling upon all the countries represented at the United Nations to endorse our pledge, and work with creators all around the world to ensure a better future for authors."

Canada's copyright extension excludes authors, CISAC responds - 7 May 2015

Commenting on the development, Jean Michel Jarre (pictured), president of CISAC, said: "Authors in Canada still do not benefit from the same term of copyright protection as in most of the world, where protection for authors extends to 70 years after their death, while in Canada the term of protection for authors expires 50 years after the author’s death. This puts the whole community of creators in Canada, as well as foreigners seeking protection in Canada, at a major disadvantage.

"On behalf of CISAC and the four million creators represented by its members, I call upon the Canadian government to address this imbalance and immediately bring Canada’s law in line with the rest of the world. Authors in Canada should be protected for the same duration that exists in most other countries around the world. This is a matter of pure fairness."

Foreword - Jean Michel Jarre

Jean Michel Jarre
President, CISAC

As the President of an organisation that represents more than three million creators – music composers like me, lyricists,
film directors and screenwriters, painters, photographers and many other creative people – I am delighted to introduce
this royalties report.

CISAC member societies work tirelessly and efficiently around the world to collect and distribute royalties from
the use of our creative works. They have managed to maintain a high level of collections in 2013 despite a tough
economic climate and an even tougher copyright environment – a testimony to the hard work done on behalf
of creators by our authors’ societies.
The relationship that we have with our authors' societies is very special and quite often misunderstood. Let's be clear:
authors' rights ensure us rewards for our creative endeavours. It is fair compensation for the use of our works. We have
empowered our societies – represented by CISAC – to guarantee that our rights are respected and our royalties collected.
Creators are the singular force behind the works – films, paintings, songs, books, poems, pictures – that millions around
the world enjoy. Yet we are often at the mercy of groups that control the channels of distribution of our works. This is acutely
felt in today's digital ecosystem where creators are the most fragile element. For this reason, we rely heavily on our authors'
societies and CISAC to take care of our interests. Alone, we are vulnerable, but when we combine our strengths, via the
societies that represent us and protect our works, we have a voice.
As creators, we are attached to the fairly simple and extremely modern concept of collective management of rights.
This is a system that allows us to devote time to creation, with the insurance that even the most modest use of our works
will be tracked and remunerated. This collection report shows that creators in Africa, the Americas, Asia, Australasia
and Europe fully benefit from this system. Let's make sure that it continues to successfully serve the wide community
of creators for many years to come.

Yeah I agree. I think this shiny glasses make him old and old-fashioned .


He is right what he was talking about utilization rights. But for long time the situation in Germany is difficult. Youtube blocks many videos with musical Content, because the GEMA (the German Society for utilization rights and under the roof of CISAC) went to court, to stop music- contents for free on Youtube. This is absurd and often harms the artists. Youtube is a good advertising medium for all.

It's almost funny that JMJ blocked himself with his Advertising on German Youtube. He don´t know ??? An evil own goal for him. :?

“When Exceptions Become the Rule, It Isn’t Fair Anymore”

Jean Michel Jarre Shares His Perspective on Creators Rights - 25 June 2015

President Jean-Michel Jarre’s keynote speech from CISAC’s recent General Assembly in Brussels has been reproduced as an editorial in this week’s edition of Music Week. Jarre takes a strong stance in favour of the creators’ position on fair remuneration.

Beginning with a recollection of his pioneering 1981 concerts in China, Jarre observes just how far the country has travelled in copyright protection as the two biggest players in the domestic on-line market call for stronger IP protection.

They understand that in order to develop a competitive online environment and an online market that continues to develop for the benefit of everyone, you first need to protect creators. They really get it.

As there is still a long way to go to deliver the same message in the US, Europe and other regions where copyright/authors’ rights are being challenged, Jarre calls upon other creators to make their voices heard and for digital services to get on-board to agree “fair-trade” conditions for the creators that fuel their value streams.

“This is the fight for our future and for the future of the next generations of creators,” said Jarre.

Creators Defend Rights in Works of Art Located in Public Places - 1 July 2015

CISAC President and Vice-Presidents have written to the President of the European Parliament, to express their views on discussions concerning the use of works of art located in public places.

Jean Michel Jarre, Angélique Kidjo, Javed Akhtar, Marcelo Piñeyro, and Ousmane Sow expressed concerns with respect to the proposal of Pirate Party MEP Julia Reda to allow the use of photographs, video footage and other images of works which are permanently located in public places, without the prior authorisation of the creator and irrespective of the commercial nature of such uses. The proposal, which was originally included in MEP Reda’s report to the Legal Affairs Committee from January this year, was later revised to exclude commercial uses of such works without prior authorisation. This revision triggered an aggressive campaign against the amendment and against the interests of creators of public art.

In the letter, the creators called the European Parliament to safeguard the rights of authors against the erosion of the value of their works in favour of a limited number of big commercial stakeholders, who are building global businesses and amassing significant profit on the back of the authors’ community. They encouraged the European MEPs to adopt a decision that would take into consideration all interests involved, at its upcoming plenary session on 9 July.

CISAC President Jean-Michel Jarre Speaks with France Inter - 2 September 2015

CISAC President underlines the need for new business models to sustain creativity and cultural diversity

This interview with Jean-Michel Jarre by journalist, Augustin Trapenard has been translated from French.

On the occasion of the upcoming release of his new album, CISAC’s President Jean-Michel Jarre was the guest speaker on France Inter’s Boomerang, one of France’s leading cultural radio programs. Jarre responds to questions regarding the impact of technology on cultural change, the importance of IP and the need to create new economic models to sustain creativity and cultural diversity in the 21st century.

Do you think that we protect artists enough in this current climate of fast-paced cultural change?

“Music, like other forms of art, such as cinema, video games, literature or theater, has never been made so readily available. Never in the past have we listened to so much music; it has never generated so much money. Yet, creators and artists have never received so little."

Does this threaten the future of cultural and creative industries?

“Intellectual property, like ecology or the environment, is at the foundation of our society. Aside from money, today, we are the smart part of smart phones.
In every family, there is a child, a boy or a girl, who dreams to make music, or to become a photographer, a film director, a playwright or a writer. Today, this individual is forced to take a job to pay the bills and, tomorrow, he or she is likely to have to give up his or her dream. We need to find a balance: in a way, we’re all virtual shareholders in Spotify, Apple and all these other tech companies that make a lot of money out of our artistic content.”

What needs to be done in terms of legislation to ensure the sustainability of creators’ remuneration?

"It’s very simple: on every smartphone, laptop or other electronic device, there should be a small, or even a tiny amount, that is redistributed to creators. This would solve the problem. I’m confident that it will happen. The people who created Apple, Facebook or Spotify were originally kids with a passion for music, and they still love music and other forms of art. They are not our enemies. In 20 years, their businesses have become economic powerhouses. We need to all sit down together to create a new economic model that will sustain creativity and cultural diversity in the 21st century. It is our responsibility for future generations.”

Jean Michel Jarre Urges Stars To Embrace Internet

Quote:
Electro-pop Pioneer Jean Michel Jarre Has Called On His Fellow Musicians To "Stop Whining" About Online File-sharing And Embrace The Internet As The Future Of The Industry.
Jean Michel Jarre



Picture: Jean Michel Jarre - Jean Michel Jarre pictured arriving at the Radio 2 studio at BBC Western House - London, United Kingdom - Monday 28th...

The French musician is widely credited with sparking the synthesiser music boom in the 1970s with his breakthrough 1976 album Oxygene.

He is also a keen follower of the latest technology and is adamant artists need to keep up with the times, and now he has urged his contemporaries to stop blaming the Internet for the demise of the record industry.

As an example of how stars can still have influence, Jarre cites the recent case of Taylor Swift forcing Apple bosses into a U-turn on their policy not to pay musicians royalties during a trial period for clients.

"I think everyone in the music industry should stop whining and stop considering the giants of the Internet as the enemy," Jarre tells Mojo magazine.

"We are the virtual shareholders of these giant companies. When you see Taylor Swift make Apple change their policy, it's proof that we can find solutions - and we will. We need to recognise that artists aren't a luxury; they're one of the fundamental elements of our society."

CISAC and Creators from Around the World Received by French Prime Minister Manuel Valls

Reception Marks 90th Anniversary of CISAC, the International Organisation Dedicated to the Protection of Authors’ Rights

Paris, France - 1 June 2016 – A delegation from CISAC – the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers – was received by French Prime Minister Manuel Valls at the Hôtel de Matignon, in honour of the organisation’s 90th anniversary. CISAC protects the rights of over 4 million authors through its member organisations in 120 countries.

The delegation was led by composer and electronic music pioneer Jean-Michel Jarre, CISAC President, and included over 100 invitees from all over the world as well as renowned creators: film directors Jacques Fansten, Bertrand Tavernier, Euzhan Palcy and Jia Zhang-ke; visual artists Florence Chevallier, Hervé Di Rosa, Mounir Fatmi, Christian Guemy (alias C215), Christian Jaccard, Miss-Tic, Hervé Télémaque and Jacques Villeglé; composers and songwriters Axel Bauer, Brigitte, Jacob Desvarieux (Kassav), Djur Djura, Elodie Fregé, Arthur H, Maxime Le Forestier, Armando Manzanero, Laurent Petitgirard, Olivia Ruiz, Eric Serra, and Paul Williams.

The reception by Valls demonstrates the longevity of the attention given at the highest levels of the French government to culture, creators and the collective management of their rights. The rights of creators are currently the subject of intense debates in Europe and throughout the world, especially in the context of the digital market.

Prime Minister Manuel Valls stated, “The fight for authors’ rights is vital to protect creation. The [French] government acts on numerous levels: the battle against piracy, fair remuneration of authors and artists for the digital use of their works, and supporting the means of financing creation. France, an early pioneer for authors’ rights, will stay at the forefront of its modernisation”.

CISAC President Jean-Michel Jarre welcomed this statement by adding, “Authors’ rights are at the heart of culture and cultural diversity, which today are vital in enabling people to respect one another’s differences and to live together. They are also a key driver of the creative economy, generating employment and revenue, which allows an entire class of, often young, people to live off of their talent. As the world becomes increasingly digital, it is all the more necessary to ensure that creators receive fair remuneration for the use of their artistic works, particularly in digital markets. We call on governments and decision makers to support pro-creator legislation in France, in Europe and throughout the world.”

Jean-Michel Jarre stressed the importance of the 2005 UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions, which has been ratified by 138 countries. Jarre suggested that this text, which signatory countries will discuss again in the coming months, be expanded to take into account the huge digital challenges that did not yet exist when the Convention was negotiated at the end of the 1990s. Rebalancing the Transfer of Value as well as promoting private copying remuneration and the visual artists’ resale right are essential global solutions for fair remuneration of creators. French Prime Minister Manuel Valls highlighted the importance of the issues at stake in this renegotiation and indicated that France would take any necessary measures.

When $9.1 Billion Income Isn't Enough: Artists Step Up Fight For More Royalties - Forbes - 27 November 2016



Cisac president and electric music pioneer Jean-Michel Jarre put it this way earlier in the year, in an interview with the current writer: “It is not a matter that we should complain about because we are now entering an entirely new age. We’ve never been listening to so much music. Some digital companies are worth billions and yet the majority of artists at the end of the year get the cost of a pizza without pepperoni. So it is something we have to readjust – we have to reinvent a business model for the 21st century for artists.”

“Such a positive report matters a lot to creators worldwide,” Jarre said in an e-mailed statement. “Like everyone else, we rely on the health of the economy. However, unlike others, we truly depend on our societies to collect our royalties so that we can continue creating. We need effective systems that capture the value of our works and require those who benefit from them to pay us fairly. The positive health of the creative industries and the ability of creators to make a living from their work is of vital importance to culture as well as to the economy”.

CISAC President Jean-Michel Jarre addresses launch of ground-breaking study on creative industries in Italy

Economic study commissioned by CISAC member SIAE reinforces importance of cultural and creative industries

CISAC President Jean-Michel Jarre delivered a statement during the launch of Italia Creativa, and declared,

“For many years, we have known that our economic growth in the future will not come from manufacturing or traditional industries, but from knowledge and creativity. But now, we also have comprehensive studies – domestic and global studies – spread across multiple sectors and territories, to prove it. These studies translate the forecasts into hard evidence and data. This data shows a truly impressive picture. Not only of what our creative sectors have achieved, but also what they can go on to achieve if the right environment is provided for them in the future.”

CISAC works with UNESCO to explore ways of addressing the ‘transfer of value‘

On June 12th creators and copyright experts will gather in Paris as CISAC joins a conference hosted by UNESCO exploring the transfer of value and the challenges it brings to creative industries.

As part of CISAC’s global campaign on the transfer of value, Jean-Michel Jarre, CISAC President, will join a keynote debate on “Fairly remunerating creators in the digital environment. The challenges of the transfer of value”.

Music creators gather to call for international end to ‘value gap’

Posted 6 June 2017

Music creators and leading figures from the world’s collecting societies have come together to urge governments to address the growing ‘value gap’ in the digital space.

The global gathering has been organised by CISAC, the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers, and takes place in Lisbon this week.

More than 200 leading creators and society heads are participating as the confederation renews its call on international governments to legislate for fair remuneration for music authors, screenwriters, directors and visual artists.

Top of CISAC’s priorities is the global campaign for legislation to address music’s ‘transfer of value’, also known as the value gap.

This is a market distortion that allows some of the world’s major digital services build large businesses on the back of creators, while paying very little in return.

CISAC President Jean-Michel Jarre said: ‘Globalisation has seen an increasing concentration of tech giants with immense power to get creative content on the cheap.'

CISAC looks to governments to get this right: to channel fair value for creative works to the creators who made them, and not the digital platforms that exploit legal loopholes to make money from them.’

CISAC director general Gadi Oron added: ‘Societies must have a fair market environment in which to license their repertoire. But the picture today is far from fair. A number of digital platforms, which dominate content distribution, are using outdated laws or legal loopholes to avoid royalty payments and amass huge revenues on the backs of creators. This anomalous situation must be fixed.’

José Jorge Letria, president of Sociedade Portuguesa de Autores, said: ‘Lisbon will be for a few days the copyright capital of the world, welcoming many dozens of authors’ societies from all over the world.

‘Our message is clear: without authors there is no culture. And we look to legislators to guarantee creators fair remuneration for their work and recognition of their struggle to create a more supportive, more human and luminous world. Together we will achieve it, since reason, emotion and creativity are on our side.’

CISAC is the world’s leading network of authors’ societies and represents the collective voice of over four million creators worldwide.

CISAC’s General Assembly to meet in Lisbon to discuss future of Creative Sector

Creators and authors’ society heads from across the world urge governments to legislate for fair remuneration



Lisbon, 6 June 2017 – The pre-eminent global gathering of creators and authors’ society heads will convene in Lisbon this week for the 2017 CISAC General Assembly.

CISAC, the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers, is the world’s leading network of authors’ societies and the collective voice of over 4 million creators worldwide.

More than 200 leading creators and society heads will participate as the confederation renews its call on governments internationally to legislate for fair remuneration for music authors, screenwriters, directors and visual artists.

Top of CISAC’s priorities is the global campaign for legislation to address music’s ‘transfer of value’. This is a market distortion that allows some of the world’s major digital services build large businesses on the back of creators, while paying very little in return.

Together we will achieve it, since reason, emotion and creativity are on our side”.

Remuneration successes in audiovisual and visual arts sector

The last year has seen a number of key successes in the creators’ global campaign for fair remuneration. CISAC works alongside its Creators’ Councils, the Council of Music Authors (CIAM), Writers & Directors Worldwide (W&DW) and the International Council of Creators of Graphic, Plastic and Photographic Arts (CIAGP).

Thanks to campaigns driven by societies in Latin America, new laws giving screenwriters and directors the right to earn royalties have been adopted in Chile and Colombia. The reforms introduce a remuneration right, meaning that audiovisual creators will be able to earn a living from their work for the first time.

There has also been key progress in CISAC’s campaign for an international resale right for visual artists. The resale right allows artists to share in the proceeds when their works are resold by galleries and auction houses. Momentum for international adoption of the right is picking up following the first ever full-day conference dedicated to the issue at WIPO in April 2017, marked by overwhelming support from artists across the world.

CISAC’s 2017 Annual Report, providing a comprehensive overview of its fight for creators’ rights globally, will be available for download at www.cisac.org on 8 June 2017.

A special roundtable discussion, with CISAC President Jean-Michel Jarre, and Presidents of CISAC’s creators councils Hervé di Rosa, Yves Nilly and Lorenzo Ferrero, focused on CISAC and the Creators’ Councils key campaigns. Themes included the difficulties faced by creators in the digital market, progress of the Fair Trade Music campaign, the renewed optimism of the resale right campaign, the spectacular success of the audiovisual campaign in Latin America contrasted by the apparent lack of support from MEPs in the previous day’s vote on the EU Copyright Package by the IMCO Committee of the European Parliament; the urgent need to influence changes to the legislative framework. Jarre called for increased focus on lobbying activities and awareness raising.

In a closing speech, acclaimed electronic musician and CISAC President Jean-Michel Jarre called for all policy makers to understand culture as a the driving force behind the digital world. Arriving from New York City and his recent tour, Jean-Michel Jarre thanked SPAutores for hosting the world of collective management in Lisbon, and praised its work to create a network of Lusophone societies in Africa.

CISAC’s tireless efforts have helped put, the issue of the transfer of value on the top of the creative agenda, Jarre said. It is “the biggest issue of our age for creators. The biggest injustice in their working lives, and the biggest flaw in the creative economy.” He added: “if we care about the future generations of creators, we must work to have more streams of revenues coming our way from the digital market.”

Jean-Michel Jarre called for a universal unwaivable right to remuneration for audiovisual authors. Argentina, Chile and Colombia “have shown us the way” to this universal adoption. Finally, CISAC’s President emphasised that visual artists have “started to crack the door at WIPO and build momentum for a worthy cause” for the international adoption of the resale right.

Jean-Michel Jarre issued a final rallying call to General Assembly Delegates: The digital age has been good for creators, bringing unprecedented opportunities, he said. But in reality we must recognize that the digital economy is the “cultural economy”, fueled by creators. However, it is the massive revenue generators of the digital world, and not creators, who are receiving the benefits or value share. He delivered the final message: “The digital revolution must be a creators’ revolution. Let’s make every policy-maker and decision-maker understand that.”

The 2018 CISAC General Assembly will take place on June 2018 in Warsaw, Poland.

We need new legislation to make the digital revolution the "creators' revolution"

This article is adapted from a speech made by Jean Michel Jarre, President of CISAC, at UNESCO ON June 12th 2017

By Jean-Michel Jarre

Music and other creative sectors have seen an extraordinary transition in the digital world. It has revolutionised the way people access works, allowed the music of songwriters and artists to cross borders in ways they never could before and it has created enormous potential to grow our creative industries, jobs and the economy around them.

I have made my personal journey through these changes. At the start of my career, my music was carried only on vinyl records. Today it is streamed, live or recorded, in every country, and on countless platforms and mobile devices.

The digital age has been, and is, good for creators. When we speak about the digital economy, however, let’s be clear: we are really talking about the cultural economy. Because it is culture, cultural works, creations and creativity, that make up the heart of this digital age. It is culture that is the blood being pumped through the arteries of our digital world. It is creators who are putting the “smart” in smartphones.

Look at the biggest and most powerful platforms today – YouTube, Facebook, Google, Apple, Amazon - their businesses and their vast revenues are dominated and driven by the works made by creators. Internet service providers compete via the packages of cultural content they can offer their subscribers. Mobile operators have equipped the world with smartphones that, without music, film, photographs and books, are of almost zero value.

That is why creative industries have such future potential for economic growth and sustainable development. The EY study commissioned by CISAC just over a year ago estimates the value of creative industries at no less than 2,250 billion dollars worldwide. And creative industries provide 25 million jobs.

But, despite the good news, there is still an enormous problem. We have not yet made the digital revolution what it must become – a creators’ revolution. Access to cultural works certainly has been revolutionised. And the consumption of cultural works has exploded. But where has the value been generated for that consumption? Who has benefitted?

The answer is that the digital age has not sufficiently benefitted the creators whose works are driving it. It has benefitted more the technology companies, the platforms and the makers of hardware that distribute and monetise those works.

The experience of the music sector provides the best illustration of the problem. Music’s digital revolution has been through many phases – from MP3 piracy to music downloads, and now to subscription services. And for the first time in two decades, the music industry is growing again.

This is good news. Yet creators are still not seeing a fair return for their work. And the main reason for that is the problem known as the “transfer of value”.

Today the biggest source of music by far is video streaming – platforms such as YouTube and other user generated content platforms. These platforms have an audience of more than 1 billion users worldwide. These are music services which are building vast businesses on the back of creative content – and which are paying minimal rates of remuneration to rights holders.

This situation is caused by a fundamental flaw in the creative landscape. It is caused by market rules which allow powerful user generated services to avoid paying a fair rate for the creative content they are using.

This is our global problem: a huge sector that is distributing the music of creators is paying a tiny share of revenue in return. The transfer of value is the biggest issue facing creators today – not just in music, but also in photographs, film and other repertoires.

So what needs to be done? Addressing the transfer of value is a major responsibility for policy makers. It will improve the environment in which creators are trying to make a living. It will help foster cultural diversity, helping authors and songwriters outside the mainstream, for whom streaming royalties are key to their livelihoods.

In the last year, we have looked to the European Union for action. That is where there is legislation under discussion, that will soon be voted on by the European Parliament. At a global level, UNESCO, too, has its own important role part to play – which is why this week, in Paris, I am speaking at the first ever UNESCO conference on fair remuneration for creators in the digital era.

Europe has presented the opportunity for meaningful policy change on a global issue. The European Commission’s copyright proposals would apply copyright law fairly to all music services, including video streaming platforms. It is a first step only – but it reflects renewed respect for creators’ rights in a world where too often they are under attack.

The digital revolution has been the defining change in our lives in the last several decades. But as creators our work is not done – it is in many ways only just starting. The market distortion of the “transfer of value” must be fixed. Creators must be fairly remunerated. The digital revolution must be a true “creators’ revolution”.

CISAC President Jean-Michel Jarre speaks at UNESCO, calling for global legislation to ensure digital platforms pay creators fairly



Paris, 13th June, 2017 – Legislation at an international level is needed to ensure a fair digital market for creators. This was the message delivered by electronic music pioneer Jean-Michel Jarre, who is also President of global creators’ organisation CISAC.

The statement was delivered at an event on “Fairly remunerating creators in the digital environment”, held at UNESCO’s headquarters in Paris. For a commentary based on Jean-Michel Jarre’s UNESCO comments, see here.

Jarre supported the copyright proposal put forward by the European Commission in September 2016 and currently under discussion in the European Parliament. He welcomed the engagement of UNESCO in the global debate on the issue, and highlighted the need for urgent changes to the framework protecting creators in the digital market.

“For the first time in two decades, the music industry is growing again. This is good news. Yet creators are still not seeing a fair return for their work and the main reason for that is the problem known as the transfer of value".

CISAC President Jean-Michel Jarre speaks at UNESCO, calling for global legislation to ensure digital platforms pay creators fairly

Image

Paris, 13th June, 2017 – Legislation at an international level is needed to ensure a fair digital market for creators. This was the message delivered by electronic music pioneer Jean-Michel Jarre, who is also President of global creators’ organisation CISAC.

The statement was delivered at an event on “Fairly remunerating creators in the digital environment”, held at UNESCO’s headquarters in Paris. For a commentary based on Jean-Michel Jarre’s UNESCO comments, see here.

Jarre supported the copyright proposal put forward by the European Commission in September 2016 and currently under discussion in the European Parliament. He welcomed the engagement of UNESCO in the global debate on the issue, and highlighted the need for urgent changes to the framework protecting creators in the digital market.

“For the first time in two decades, the music industry is growing again. This is good news. Yet creators are still not seeing a fair return for their work and the main reason for that is the problem known as the transfer of value".

CISAC President in Billboard: fix the “black hole” or risk losing the next Kubrick, Coldplay and Picasso

CISAC President Jean-Michel Jarre has used an interview in Billboard to issue a powerful call to action for governments worldwide to address the “black hole” of the transfer of value.

‘‘If we don't create a decent business model for the 21st century, for all these sectors of society, we may not have the next Stanley Kubrick, the next Coldplay, or the next Picasso,’’ he says in the article published in Billboard.com on June 19th. Jarre calls for rules that reflect the importance of creative content. “Let's remember, in a smart phone, the smart part is us: the creators. If you take away cultural content, it just becomes a regular $50 device. So we know the value of content is beyond any kind of discussion.’’

In a call to action on the transfer of value, Jarre says the creative sector is generating more money than the car and fashion industry in many countries, while the creators and authors have never got so little. ‘‘It's more money for these companies and just a tiny, tiny percentage for everybody else. It's as if we're in a medieval dark digital age, where you have the king getting all the money and all the rest of the population starving.’’

Jarre says proposals from the European Commission are a good first step towards addressing the transfer of value, and calls on the European Parliament to support them. ‘‘The position of the European Union will be seen by the entire world. And if it's wrong, it will have a domino effect. We cannot let Europe make a big mistake. We cannot let this kind of black hole exist in our economy”.

Copyright increases despite "crumbs" donated by YouTube

Like a mantra or an eternal jingle. Creators around the world are complaining bitterly about the ridiculous alms that YouTube (Google) gives them. This time the complaint comes from the pioneer of electronic music Jean-Michel Jarre, also president of the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composition (CISAC), which represents 239 societies of authors, more than 4 million creators from 121 countries.

Admittedly, in 2016, copyrights reached a record 9.2 billion euros, up 6% over the previous year. But this improvement is in sham, according to CISAC, which publishes these data Wednesday, November 15.

"Despite their growth, these numbers are still far from the level they should reach. The major sectors that exploit creative content devalue our work, "says Jean-Michel Jarre. A notable phenomenon "on the digital, where platforms such as YouTube donate only crumbs to authors," he said calling on governments to quickly find a solution.

Creators’ global royalty collections hit record €9.2 billion



Digital income growth accelerates to 51% as CISAC member author societies drive efficiencies worldwide

Paris, France, 15 November 2017 – Global royalty collections for creators have hit a new record high of €9.2 billion annually, up 6% on the previous year according to new figures published by the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers (CISAC) today.

Jean-Michel Jarre, CISAC President and electronic music pioneer, writes:

“This is a vast sector of cultural and economic activity, worth an amazing nine billion euros worldwide. Despite its growth, however, collections are nowhere near the level they should be. Large industries that use creative content are driving down the value of our works. A simple illustration of this is the “transfer of value” in the digital market where platforms such as YouTube are paying mere crumbs to authors. There is no greater priority that we ask from governments today than a solution to the transfer of value.”

Copyright up, even if YouTube still only pays crumbs

"Despite their growth, these figures are still far from the level they should reach.The major sectors that exploit creative content devalue our work," said Jean-Michel Jarre, President of CISAC, quoted in a statement. According to the French pioneer of electronic music, "the 'transfer of value' is a perfect illustration of this phenomenon in the digital market, where platforms such as YouTube only give away crumbs to authors".
YouTube, a free platform owned by Google, claims a billion users, while Spotify, the world's leading paid streaming, claims to have 60 million paid subscribers (and 140 million free users).

"At the moment, asking governments for a solution to the transfer of value is a top priority," concludes Jean-Michel Jarre.

Creators worldwide, led by CISAC President Jean-Michel Jarre, call on EU for copyright leadership

CISAC President Jean-Michel Jarre and Vice Presidents Angélique Kidjo, Marcelo Piñeyro, Jia Zhang-ke and Miquel Barceló have called upon Members of the European Parliament to support authors in current discussions on the copyright package. If correctly adopted, a copyright package supportive of authors would show the world that Europe is the leader in bringing fairness to authors in the digital world.

Jean-Michel Jarre leads call for European Parliament to “shape a fairer digital market”

By Chris Cooke | Published on Thursday 8 February 2018

As all the copyright directive chitter chatter continues in Brussels, musicians Jean-Michel Jarre and Angelique Kidjo have both put their names to an open letter to the European Parliament urging MEPs to back safe harbour reform.

The draft copyright directive spent all of last year working its way through the motions with a flurry of amendments being proposed. There are various articles in the directive of relevance to the music community, though it is the clause that seeks to reform the safe harbour that has got the most attention. This, of course, seeks to increase the liabilities of user-upload websites like YouTube, mainly to strengthen the negotiating hand of music rights owners so to force up the royalties the Google video sites pays.

While all that has been going on, YouTube has entered into new licensing deals with the majors, and on the back of that some record label execs seem to be warming to the big bad Google business once again. Though that didn’t stop a stack of music industry trade bodies signing a recent letter to the new EU presidency, urging it to back safe harbour reform as the copyright directive reaches its final stages.

Jarre and Kidjo have now written to the European Parliament in their guise as President and Vice-President of CISAC, the global grouping that brings together all the song right repping performing rights organisations around the world. The CISAC membership also includes some collecting societies representing other creative sectors, so this week’s letter was also signed by visual artist Miquel Barcelo and film directors Marcelo Pineyro and Jia Zhang-ke, who are all also VPs of CISAC.

In their letter to all those MEPs, they write: “The proposals by the European Commission, currently being discussed in the European Parliament, are among the most important copyright reforms of the last 20 years in Europe. They are a first step in the right direction, offering a historic opportunity to bring fairer remuneration for creators and drive economic growth and jobs in the creative industries”.

Honing in on safe harbour reform and the music industry’s ‘value gap’ campaign, the letter goes on: “In particular, Europe now has a chance to address the ‘transfer of value’ or ‘value gap’ which is caused by loopholes in the law allowing some of the world’s largest digital platforms to deny fair remuneration to millions of creators. To do this effectively, it is essential for the legislation to ensure fair remuneration by user uploaded content platforms such as YouTube. EU law should not be a shield to allow such platforms to make vast revenues from creative works while not fairly rewarding the creators”.

Noting that CISAC – as a global organisation – is hoping Europe can lead on all this, they add: “The proposed copyright reform puts Europe in a unique position of international leadership. As creators representing regions around the world – Africa, Asia, North and South America and Europe – we are watching events in Brussels with great hope. We know that our governments are also monitoring the situation very closely and may follow up with similar laws”.

In conclusion, Jarre et al state: “Thousands of artists and authors within Europe have already voiced their solidarity with the European Commission’s proposals. We now send our own message of encouragement to take this legislation to its full potential. Members of Parliament, we ask you to take this opportunity to shape a fairer digital market for creators in the 21st century”.

Jean-Michel Jarre urges European Parliament to close loopholes in copyright law

The current proposals have been called "the most important copyright reforms of the last 20 years in Europe."

Jean-Michel Jarre has signed an open letter to European Parliament backing amendments to copyright law.

Jarre is the president of CISAC, an international conglomerate of performing rights organisations aiming to close copyright loopholes in a directive currently being drafted by the European Parliament. The aim is to strengthen the position of copyright holders negotiating licensing deals with large-scale digital platforms like YouTube and Spotify. The current law allows streaming services to pay lower royalties in the EU than other territories, which the CISAC has called "a major problem... holding back our sector and jeopardising future sustainability."

The open letter deems the current proposals "the most important copyright reforms of the last 20 years in Europe." The letter continues: "Europe now has a chance to address the 'transfer of value' or 'value gap' which is caused by loopholes in the law allowing some of the world's largest digital platforms to deny fair remuneration to millions of creators. To do this effectively, it is essential for the legislation to ensure fair remuneration by user uploaded content platforms such as YouTube.

Sociedade Portuguesa de Autores - 14/02/2018

Letter from Jean-Michel Jarre on the defense of authors' rights

We are writing as creators from around the world - and the President and Vice-Presidents of CISAC - to ask for your support for authors in the current discussions on the copyright package which, if properly approved, will put Europe as a world leader in justice for authors in the digital world. CISAC - International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers - represents more than 4 million creators of music, audiovisual, theater, literature and visual arts in 121 countries.

The proposals of the European Commission, currently under discussion in the European Parliament, are among the most important copyright reforms of the last 20 years in Europe. They represent a first step in the right direction, providing a historic opportunity to award fairer compensation to creators and boost economic growth and employment in the creative industries. In particular, Europe now has the opportunity to address "value transfer" or "value difference" caused by loopholes in the law, allowing some of the world's largest digital platforms to deny fair compensation to millions of creators.

To achieve this effectively, it is essential that legislation ensures fair remuneration supported by user-uploaded content platforms (UUCs) such as YouTube. European legislation should not act as a shield that allows such platforms to earn large revenues at the expense of creative work, not just rewarding creators.

The proposed copyright reform puts Europe in a unique position of international leadership. As creators representing the various regions of the world - Africa, Asia, North and South America and Europe - we see the events in Brussels with great hope. We know that our governments are also following the situation very closely and can come up with similar legislation.

Thousands of artists and authors in Europe have already expressed their solidarity with the proposals of the European Commission. We thus send our own message of encouragement to ensure that this legislation reaches its full potential.

Members of Parliament, we ask you to seize this opportunity to shape a fairer digital market for creators in the 21st century.

CISAC joins rights holders in Bulgaria as it takes on European Union Presidency

CISAC, MUSICAUTOR, FILMAUTOR, GESAC and SAA convene with Bulgaria on EU copyright reform and national issues

Drawing attention to the importance of this moment to Bulgarian audiences, CISAC President Jean-Michel Jarre and Director General Gadi Oron, along with Musicautor CEO Ivan Dimitrov were interviewed for The Day Starts with Culture on Bulgarian National Television, as part of the television station and Musicautor’s “The Price of Creativity” campaign.

In the interview, Jean-Michel Jarre drew attention to Europe’s central role in protecting authors, notably in today’s environment:

“Europe has always been a champion in protecting authors’ rights. Since the 18th century, there has been a thinking, particularly in France with Beaumarchais, about the idea of droit d’auteur. Authors are now at the centre of a huge industry, which represents more revenue than automobile or luxury industries, that employ millions of people around the world, yet which has never been so fragile economically.”

Bulgaria has unique opportunity on the world stage to improve the situation of creators in the European Union and subsequently throughout the world. Jean-Michel Jarre drew attention to this during the interview, stating:

“We are expecting from Brussels a legal framework to protect creators. I believe that Bulgaria has a role to play. It is an important part of Europe. We have a common cultural past. The voice of Bulgaria is extremely important for all of us, not only for Europeans but for all artists-African and developing country artists who are expecting a lot from Europe. The eyes of all creators, everyone who is interested in the future of creativity, are watching Bulgaria and Europe.”

Jean-Michel Jarre and an authors' delegation call on the European Parliament for fair rules in the digital world

Authors worldwide look for Europe’s leadership to address the “transfer of value”

Brussels, Belgium - 6th March 2018 – World-renowned electronic music composer and performer Jean-Michel Jarre led a delegation of authors(*) in Brussels today to call for support by members of the European Parliament to bring fairness for authors in the digital world.

Jarre and the delegation from 5 different Member States presented a petition signed by more than 14,000 authors and composers from across the EU. The petition calls for an end to the “transfer of value” that is benefiting certain major digital platforms at the expense of creators.

Jarre was speaking as President of CISAC (the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers) which is the voice globally of over 4 million creators of music, cinema, visual arts, theatre and literature. The delegation was jointly coordinated by GESAC, which represents one million authors from all sectors in Europe.

The authors expressed their full support for the European Commission’s proposed Copyright Directive, currently pending before the Parliament, and urged the JURI Committee of the European Parliament to stick firm on a real and meaningful solution on transfer of value, and not to deviate from this line.

The group also thanked a growing number of Member States in the Council, including France, which are committed to effectively addressing the “transfer of value” or “value gap” in the proposed Copyright Directive that is currently under discussion in the European Parliament.

Jean-Michel Jarre said: “Celebrating and promoting creativity has always been a part of Europe’s DNA. But today, in Europe and worldwide, creators are seeing the value of their work being unfairly extracted by digital platforms. The world is now watching the EU. It is for Europe to prove that it remains the champion of culture. We need a 21st century copyright framework for a 21st century digital market – one that allows future generations of creators to be fairly remunerated and be able to make a living from their work.”

The music sector and other creative sectors are growing fast and generating vast revenues, but these revenues are not fairly returned to the creators. Instead they are being siphoned off by large global digital services – notably user upload platforms such as YouTube – which refuse to share their vast revenues with those who created the content uploaded to their services.

The creators’ petition asks EU policy makers to fix this transfer of value in the proposed copyright legislation.

“EP Pervenche Berès, co-chair of the Cultural and Creative Industry Intergroup (CCI) said: “Europe should adopt an ambitious solution to stop this totally unfair situation of free riders in the market and ensure a strong and sustainable ecosystem. Creators’ engagement by our side is extremely valuable for us and for the cause we defend because the stakes are high and because some MEPs in this house do unfortunately listen to and believe these giants.”

MEP Christian Ehler, co-chair of the CCI said: “Europe has an historical opportunity today to address the issue, which is about the future of cultural and creative industries and also about the digital single market at large. It’s about European economy and growth. It’s also about culture which is what keeps us together. This is a decisive period, where the EU has a chance to put forward a meaningful solution.”

(*) Delegation composed of:

Crispin Hunt, British composer, songwriter, singer and producer, Chair of BASCA and a Board Director of PRS for Music.

Matthew Irons, author, composer, singer and guitarist of the Belgian band Puggy,

Astrid North, German singer and songwriter,

Cora Novoa, Spanish electronic and experimental – pop music composer, DJ,

Piotr Rubik, Polish author composer performer and conductor.

CISAC President Jean-Michel Jarre leads calls for a fairer 21st century digital landscape

Warsaw, May 29, 2018 – Over 200 authors and their representatives convene this week in Poland at CISAC’s General Assembly, the annual meeting of the world’s leading network of creators and authors’ societies.

The Warsaw meeting will be attended by the confederation’s President Jean-Michel Jarre and many other creators from across the world. It will be hosted by ZAiKs, the Polish Society of Authors and Composers, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2018 and was one of the original founders of the Confederation in 1926.

ZAiKS President Janusz Fogler says: “We are delighted to be hosting CISAC again after 84 years, and to be able to bestow Honorary Membership of ZAiKS upon exceptional creator and CISAC President Jean-Michel Jarre on our 100th anniversary. This accolade, which was first granted in pre-war times, is to this day the highest distinction awarded by ZAiKs. It recognises the efforts Jean-Michel has put into improving the situation of authors worldwide and in Poland”.

CISAC President Jean-Michel Jarre says: “This is a critical moment in Europe’s proposal for legislation to give creators a fair deal from global technology companies. CISAC’s message in this debate is a vital one for policy makers to hear. It is: “the world is watching Europe”. There is no doubt that decisions made to fix the transfer of value in Europe this year will send a powerful signal to governments globally. Today Europe – tomorrow the world. That is an empowering message to the global community”.

He took up this role in June 2013.

Jean-Michel Jarre, an activity that develops in several continents and also has as a reference the Japanese capital, since it is a country where it has had hundreds of thousands of admirers, is a unique figure of the world music and a brave and combative defender of authors' rights. He will cease his duties in Tokyo in June next year at a general assembly of the confederation.

Tomorrow’s Europe: the return to culture

"We are the continent that hosts half of UNESCO's world heritage. And, wherever you look, Europe is synonymous with style, knowledge, beauty. This is our strength, the undeniable authority on a global scale - and our patrimony, which can not be relocated, must serve to political and economic renaissance. Even more than the economy, culture is the one that keeps Europe together - and culture must be the starting point for efforts to revitalize the Union." It was - the essence of European Parliament President Antonio Tajani - the key message of a high-level conference, held in Brussels on 26 June, right in the House of European Citizens.

Strong voices with clear, percussion messages were heard in the Chamber of the European Parliament - a true "orchestra", including conductor and pianist Daniel Barenboim, musician Jean-Michel Jarre, composer and conductor Ezio Bosso, cinematographer Radu Mihaileanu, but also Ministers of Culture from several European countries, museum directors, universities, associations, young musicians, European parliamentarians; in a word, many representatives of institutions active in the field of culture.

Jean-Michel Jarre: "Do we in Europe want to become" digitally colonized?"

The first to be given the floor - and one whose voice and arguments were heard most strongly in the plenary of the European Parliament - was the French musician, composer and producer alike, pioneer of electronic music, Jean-Michel Jarre. Nor could a more convincing defender of Europe's creators in the world: the 12 minutes of his speech condensed the challenges, the threats, the need for help - turning into a real and very striking appeal to action.

And because the French artist's plea has been one of the great moments of the conference, with open-ended applause, but also because the renewal of copyright laws will continue to waves, provoke discussions, we will make a few fragments (and arguments) of Jean-Michel Jarre's speech.

"Every European family, in each of your families, is a child, a brother, a sister, a mother who dreams of becoming a photographer, graphic designer, writer, filmmaker, musician. And who will miss this dream if we do not identify a just economic model for the 21st century and the new way in which we consume and distribute culture through the Internet and new media in particular.

If we want the European tomorrow's cultural heritage to be at the level of yesterday, we simply have to give it the [existence] means, as we have done in the past. That is why the Copyright Directive, which will be voted on the coming days, is at the heart of the subject. What is happening today is the future of the creators on the continent, our culture, the shine of our artists.

The evolution of the Internet has revolutionized our lives - and we have to keep up with it. This does not mean stigmatizing the great actors of the internet, it does not mean treating them as enemies, but the opposite: they must become our interlocutors and potential partners. From a certain point of view, let us not forget that the creators are virtual shareholders of these societies, which develop, enrich themselves thanks to our creative content.

It is, therefore, indispensable to define a legal framework in order to enter into negotiations with platforms such as Youtube, for example, which are defined as storage platforms, archives and not as content platforms. Why? Because the law simply allows them not to pay rights on the content on which they are based for years.

It's been twenty years since young people, music fans and cinema yesterday, have developed extraordinary machines that have become, over time, giants of the internet, not taking into account the collateral damage they could produce and transform today in a threat unless we do something to regulate things. Those who are today against internet regulations in the name of freedom of speech are like those who refused road traffic in the name of freedom of movement at the beginning of the automobile era.

The value of creation has now been transferred to those who distribute this creation, that's the problem! Paradoxically, creative industries have not been so prosperous in terms of turnover, but creators, who are the core of these industries, have never received so little. We need to rebalance this distortion effect.

The world is looking at Europe today. Creators all over the planet are looking here today - and the directive that will be adopted will hopefully create a domino effect.

Very seriously, we insist on the idea that we, the creators, would be against technology and against freedom of expression. It's totally outrageous! Creators are always the ones who imagine the future and are using the techniques of their present to be creators of modernity - I myself are a very good example in this respect. And what is even more unacceptable is that being a partisan of the idea of respecting intellectual property would be an attempt at freedom of expression, a form of censorship. It's just the opposite: not giving the creators the minimum means to express themselves is the supreme form of censorship!

If we talk about freedom, do we want to become "digitally colonized" in Europe? Europe has an obligation not to lose the battle for content - this tremendous creativity that is essential to our continent's DNA. A future for the digital world will only exist if there is a future for creators. And how can one imagine that paying creators is a form of censorship?

The problem comes from the fact that we rely on old laws dating from before the Internet. To create the tomorrow's heritage, give us the means to sit at the negotiating table. The more European and worldwide creators will receive a fair share of the distribution of their works, the more we will all contribute to manufacturing them. For, let's not forget, in a smartphone, the smart side is us, the creators."

Dr_Jones - Wed Sep 12, 2018 4:12 pm

I personally am not too happy about it. Especially article 11, the "link tax".

It's "a new copyright rule for linking to news organizations and quoting text from their stories. Online platforms will have to pay for a license to link out to news publishers, and this will theoretically help support organizations that are vital for public information and drive users to their homepages.

That all sounds decent in principle, but Article 11 doesn’t bother to even define what constitutes a link. Details will be left to the 28 individual countries in the EU to figure that out. That opens the door for political abuse of how news is spread in each country, and it will likely have the opposite of its intended effect."

In other words: corporations might ask money because we're posting links here.

Basically, the problems with both laws are that they are so non-specific, that big corporations can easily exploit them. And they will.

And it will be the end of memes and reaction gifs.
