Getting to know Nuovo IMAIE: through a few and simple sequences it’s possible to understand the role and tasks that the Institute carries out in compliance with article 7 of Italian law 100/10.
If you wish to specifically examine closely the institutional contents, check the main menu.
We are the institute that, by law, protects and distributes to artists neighbouring rights in Italy.
The neighbouring right is a right arising from the use of recordings of cinematographic, audiovisual or assimilated works or music works containing a performance by one or more artists
The neighbouring right is not the copyright (in Italy managed by SIAE), neither is it the image usage right (managed personally by artists). The neighbouring right is due to the individual that materially interprets or performs a role in a certain work, not to the individual that wrote it or conceived it or the individuals that appear in it unless they are also performers.
Nuovo IMAIE’s right holders are performing artists (or their heirs) that perform an important role in a reused work, accruing therefore a remuneration paid by Nuovo IMAIE
In a musical work right holder artists are: main artists, soloists, orchestra and choir conductors, orchestras or choirs with a proper noun.
In an audiovisual work right holder artists are: main and secondary actors, dubbers.
The following are not right holders: running musicians, session musicians, orchestra members, choir members, running actors or those with a non important role and walk-on actors.
