Bookmark and Share

CISAC, the International Confederation of Authors and Composers Societies, announced that it has officially launched its new Regional Asia-Pacific office in Beijing, after successfully obtaining the support of Chinese authorities. The office will coordinate the protection and promotion of authors' interests throughout the region.

CISAC Director General, Olivier Hinnewinkel, said: "We are pleased to announce that we have received the full support of the National Copyright Administration of China (NCAC) to set up our office in Beijing. China is a vibrant artistic market and it is vital to CISAC that the rights of creators, in all repertoires, are recognised and protected in this country and throughout the region. The NCAC is a valuable partner for CISAC to achieve this goal and we truly appreciate the Chinese government's support. We are proud to celebrate the opening of our new home in Asia by bringing the creative community to the vibrant Beijing, a city blessed with creators and creativity. Our opening ceremony and the seminar that follows mark the beginning of a new era for us and our 3-million strong creators' community in the region."

The opening ceremony was attended by a long list of distinguished guests, including Director General of NCAC, and other senior Chinese officials from the National People's Congress, State Council, Supreme People's Court and China Federation of Literary and Art Circles.

CISAC's President, renowned musician Jean Michel Jarre, delivered a keynote speech. Also in attendance were CISAC's Director General, Olivier Hinnewinkel; the Chair of CISAC's Board, Kenth Muldin; and Regional Director for Asia-Pacific, Benjamin Ng. Representatives from CISAC‘s Asia-Pacific member societies and Chinese universities as well as a number of famous Chinese creators, including famous composers Lei Lei and Fei Yuping, were present.

The opening ceremony will be followed by a seminar on the future of copyright and collective management in the region, focusing on the essential role that it plays in the lives of creators and commercial users.
