In Bulgaria, practice shows that actors’ rights are not properly valued and are bought out in advance along with the remuneration for the work. This does not allow for additional economic realisation for the performing artists from future uses of the works with their participation.
The seminar is jointly organised by “Artistautor”, the Association for the Protection of Performing Artists’ Rights, and YNG Legal.
The event will take place in two parts of 40 minutes each, with the opportunity to ask questions.
It is especially suitable for practicing actors.
Entry is free for freelance artists.
We are running the event in partnership with the collective rights management organisation “ArtistAuthor”. The association takes care of collective representation,
management and protection of the rights of performing artists in Bulgaria since 1998. Over 340 professional Bulgarian performing artists are members of ArtistAuthor.
