RUSSIAN ORGANIZATION FOR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY (VOIS)
VOIS is the All-Russian non-governmental organization, collective management society for related rights. VOIS was established by initiative of Russian related right-holders in 2008.
Today VOIS unites more than 3,000 performers and hundreds of record-labels in different music styles.
In 2009 Rosohrankultura (the Ministry of Culture Department) accredited VOIS as the sole society to collect and distribute remuneration for related rights owners within the territory of the Russian Federation. It means that only VOIS has the right to act on behalf of an unlimited number of performers and phonogram producers, collect and distribute money to the right-owners.
In everyday activity VOIS concludes contracts with music users both in public sphere and broadcasting.
The main goals of VOIS are:
1. To collect the remuneration;
2. To distribute the remuneration between Russian and foreign right- holders (according with bilateral agreements with the foreign collective societies);
3. To represent Russian related right holders abroad.
