About us

The base of legal regulations of the collective administration of rights in the Czech republic constitutes with effect from 1 December 2000 Act No. 121/2000 Sb. on Copyright, Rights Related to Copyright and on the Amendment of Certain Laws (thereinafter „Copyright Act“), concretely its title IV, article § 95 et sequentes. Before entry into effect of the Copyright Act , collective administration of rights was set by the Act No. 237/1995 Sb., of a collective control of copyright and rights related to the copyright and of modification and supplementation of some acts. Permission to collective administration is invested by Ministry of Culture in terms of conditions defined by the Copyright Act. Ministry of Culture is also authorized for a control of a collective administrators activity.

Signature verification in Contracts of Representation

let me please inform you that a collective management organisation INTERGRAM is starting to require a rightholder’s signature to be verified by official authority in all Contracts of Representation which INTERGRAM receives since July 31, 2017.

INTERGRAM has implemented this requirement in order to be fully in compliance with data protection legislation, including European Union‘s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

This requirement applies not only to the process of concluding Contracts of Representation of rights with the rightsholders but also to Applications for the registration of rights of a performing artist, an heir of a performing artist, producers of phonograms and producers of audiovisual fixations.

In case of agencies a signature of the rightholders verified by an official authority is required too. If an agency signs the Contract of Representation by proxy, a submission of the original of the relevant Document of Empowerment with a verified signature of the rightholder is required. A signature of the agency’s authorized representative on the Contract of Representation does not have to be verified. An officially verified copy of the original of the relevant Document of Empowerment with a verified signature of the rightholder can be accepted too.

In a case where the rightholder is a legal person, the statutory body of such a legal person which is listed in the Company Register of the given country shall be the authorized signatory. In cases where the manner of acting requires joint signatures of two or more statutory bodies according to the relevant Company Register, all these signatures must be officially verified.

On the other hand, a signature verified by an official authority is not required in Contracts of Representation, or Applications for the registration of rights, signed at INTERGRAM premises. In such a case, the rightsholder signs the documents on the spot and the identity of the rightholder will be verified by INTERGRAM based on a presented valid identity card.

 

Please note that all the above mentioned provisions are in compliance with an internal Director Order which was issued by INTERGRAM’s managing director Mr. Jan Simon on July 31, 2017.

 

Thank you very much for your cooperation.
