Welcome to IAFAR

What are Neighbouring Rights?

“Neighbouring Rights” also called “Related Rights” are called as much because they ‘neighbour/sit
next to the song copyrights. It is a sound recording royalty for any performer who has made an
audible contribution to a recording, and to the rights holder who owns the recording.

What does IAFAR do?

We are an organisation that protects, educates and advocates for those of us in
neighbouring and related rights.

Advocacy

IAFAR was founded to tackle worldwide issues affecting the collection of artists neighbouring rights. Our aim is to collaborate with CMO’s and other interested parties to ensure the collection of these rights are as efficient and streamlined as they can be and that all performers receive the income they are rightfully entitled to.

Education

Many people do not know what neighbouring rights are and therefore also do not know what their rights are in this area. As IAFAR grows, it will provide workshops and literature to help educate and de-mystify this part of the music industry.

Community

Providing a community to support, debate and foster this new way of thinking will be beneficial to all members. A common love of beverages also brings us together.

Benefits

  • This organization was formed because we all face the same issues. There is power in numbers. If you’re unable to do your job because of something beyond your control, that can make you feel powerless. Our goal is to restore that power to the people who should have control in the first place – those contributing to the recordings.
  • Meet others who are doing the same thing that you are. We might be competitors, but ultimately, we all have the same goals.
  • Easy sign up and reasonable membership fees that go towards expenses only. This organization is not making a profit. We are making a difference.
