IFRRO resolution in support of Spanish authors, publishers and RRO

At its Annual General Meeting on 29 October, IFRRO approved a resolution in support of Spanish authors, publishers and RRO, CEDRO, our Spanish member. The resolution, that was sent to the Spanish government and to the European Commission, addresses the difficult position where authors and publishers have been put in with the new legal dispositions of the Spanish Government and how, compared to the rest of Europe, Spain lacks legal protection for intellectual property, an asset that should not be ignored since it definitely contributes to economic and cultural development. 

The resolution has been now taken up by several mass media in Spain. IFRRO trusts that the Spanish government will not only hear our voice, but also will enact changes and improvements regarding intellectual property in the country.
