Since 17 April 2014, Belgium has a new legislation with regards to copyright and neighboring rights: all applicable laws have been compiled into the so-called Book XI.
PlayRight+ has done a lot of fieldwork and has followed up on the legal and political developments with regards to copyright and neighbouring rights in Belgium. The adoption of Book XI has resulted in major changes for all rightholders.
Combined with sustainable partnerships with other organisations in the sector, this political vigilance allows us to work towards innovating solutions in order to guarantee a rightful compensation for the use and the broadcasting of recordings by artists. The actions undertaken in this respect always defend the rights of performing artists in Belgium.
