The court of Rome rejected Nuovo Imaie’s claim.
Green light to the distribution of 20 million euro due to performers.
It’s the decision of the Court of Rome regarding the controversy on the liberalization
of the neighbouring rights’ market.
Once again Nuovo Imaie tried to boycott the operation of the market with
a lawsuit aimed at blocking the effects of the first agreement that gives
concrete application to what is established with extreme clarity in the
Liberalization’s law. It’s the agreement signed between SCF, the record
producers’ organisation (that collects by
law performers’ rights) and ITSRIGHT.
"The decision of the Court of Rome confirms our agreement’s legitimacy. We are finally ready to show that
the market competition is only for performers’ benefit, by distributing them the
compensations that Nuovo Imaie tried to block in every way", said
Gianluigi Chiodaroli, President of ITSRIGHT.
