The GAAPO presentation in Tbilisi

The presentation of the Global Alliance of Authors and Performers Organizations was held in Tbilisi.

Founded by seven countries: Moldova, Ukraine, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, the mission of the Alliance is to consolidate and coordinate its member organizations in respect of enhancing the protection of copyright and related rights and interests of the rights holders on the global scale at the national and international levels.

The GAAPO further aims to limit the recently expanded Russian influence in the post-Soviet countries in the field of copyright and related rights and promote the autonomous growth of the member organizations in these countries.

Representatives from the founding countries and well-known artists from music, literature, and other professions attended the presentation.
