Moldova has ratified the Beijing Treaty on Audiovisual Performances

On May 28, 2015 Moldavian Parliament has ratified in the last reading the Beijing Treaty on Audiovisual Performances, adopted on 24 June 2012. The Beijing Treaty governs the legal protection of audiovisual performances and recordings of performers, including actors, singers, musicians, dancers and other categories of artists.

Said Treaty provides the opportunity for artists to receive part of the revenue from the use of audiovisual works at the international level and also provide the right to request to be identified as the performer as well as to object any distortion of their performances. The Treaty for the first time will ensure the rights of performers in the digital environment and in the audiovisual media.

This Treaty will enter into force 3 months after ratification of the Treaty by at least 30 parties.
