    Directive 2019/790 is a historic opportunity for national legislators to restore the justice for authors and performers, providing for them the right to receive appropriate and proportionate remuneration when they grant their exclusive exploitation rights (Article 18, paragraph 1). Member states are free to choose how to apply this rule, taking into account the principle of contractual freedom and a fair balance of rights and interests.


    The Bulgarian Law on Copyright and Related Rights still provides in Article 19 that the author has the right to remuneration for any use of his work. Is this a sufficiently effective guarantee for creators to receive a fair share of any users` revenue generated by their films? No!


    FILMAUTOR is proposing a mandatory, irrevocable, and non-transferable right to remuneration for authors and performers to be introduced in the law, which right has to be managed by the respective collective management organizations.
