Collective management organisation

Collective management organisations administer authors' rights and those of neighbouring right holders under the supervision of the Federal authorities. They establish tariffs for the different types of usage of works, performances, recordings and broadcasts and distribute the remuneration to the right holders.


Collective management organisations must be non-profit organisations. They are usually structured as a cooperative or an association.
