The report focuses on the rights and remuneration of creative forces other than producers and composers, namely script writers, set designers, cameramen, sound designers, lighting designers, editors, choreographers, costume designers, make-up artists, actors, dubbing artists, dancers, musicians, vocal performers and others. The report examines the mechanisms that enable these professional groups to share in the profits resulting from the exploitation of works to which they contributed. All the means by which audiovisual works may be exploited (e.g. cinema, television broadcasting, video/DVD, VoD and all other forms of online distribution) are considered.
