||The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and the International Federation of Reprographic Rights Organizations (IFRRO) have received a request from the newly created multidisciplinary collective management organization “La Sénégalaise du Droit d’auteur” (SODAV) to support the beginning of its operations by organizing a series of back to back meetings that will contribute to raise the profile of the new CMO both vis a vis its members and vis a vis users. It is therefore proposed to organize the following three events:
- A workshop for authors and publishers on April 18;
- A one-day public awareness-raising seminar focusing on usages and licensing of published works, collective management in reprography and the international copyright agenda on April 19;
A meeting of the French speaking reprographic rights organizations of West and Central Africa on April 20.
