A new agreement between authors’ societies and ARTE to remunerate creators for all ARTE’s services
Four French author societies have struck a landmark deal with ARTE, the European cultural channel.
The deal will allow ARTE to increase the range of programmes it makes available to viewers while safeguarding the rights of the creators at the heart of these broadcasts.
Commenting on the agreement, Jean-Noël Tronc, CEO of SACEM said: “This renewable agreement attests to our common will to support the adaptation of television to new uses. It demonstrates once again that authors’ rights and collective management are efficient tools in the era of digital innovation.”
