On May 6th, the Georgian Neighboring Rights Association held its opening presentation. The Chairperson of the Association, Gvantsa Baidoshvili, and the Lawyer, Sophia Kurashvili, provided attendees with an overview of the organization's current engagements, achievements, and strategic plans.
The event was attended by a range of music industry professionals, and GNRA's leadership expressed their commitment to expanding their membership base and increasing public awareness about neighboring rights.
GNRA has already achieved significant milestones in its efforts to protect and promote the rights of performers and producers of phonograms in Georgia. GNRA has signed bilateral and unilateral agreements with foreign Collective Management Organizations (CMOs) to ensure that Georgian rightsholders receive fair compensation for the use of their content abroad. Furthermore, GNRA is actively involved in standard setting and working with foreign colleagues to ensure that their members' rights are protected not only in Georgia but also internationally. By collaborating with international organizations, GNRA is able to stay up-to-date with industry developments and ensure that its members' rights are fully protected.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our members and guests for joining us for such an engaging event. We would also like to extend our thanks to the Georgian Copyright Association and Sakpatenti for their support.
