The Audiovisual Authors union from all over the continent in the same space is once again possible thanks to the joint work carried out by societies and federations of the continent, in pursuit of the recognition of authors rights and the right to remuneration. More than four years of unified work under the protection and technical, logistical and economic support of FESAAL allows us to glimpse a promising near future for Latin American Audiovisual Authors in terms of remuneration for the dissemination of their works, due to the signing of reciprocity agreements between societies, and the recent legislative sanctions that enable the right to collection in countries of the region.
