One day in Strasbourg - SAA shows off Europe's audiovisual creativity
For the first edition of “One Day in Strasbourg”, The Society of Audiovisual Authors (SAA), the European association of audiovisual collective rights management organisations for screenwriters and directors, is putting the spotlight on Europe’s new boom in TV series on the 21st May. Creators, collective management organisations and MEPs will meet for informal discussions about the work of screenwriters and directors in creating a TV series over the course of the evening.
As part of its work on the collective right management directive SAA has published a short booklet looking at how collective rights management organisations work and the rules that apply in different European countries for royalty distributions.
