Cuba and St Lucia sign copyright pact

June 2005

Music Publishers

The Cuban Musical Society and its St. Lucia counterpart Hewanorra Musical Society (HMS) have signed a reciprocal agreement for the protection of copyright material. The St. Lucian organization will protect intellectual property rights and collect royalties on behalf of members of its Cuban counterparts, while the Cuban will do the same for the local society. In the past, the HMS conducted business with Cuba through the UK’s Performing Right Society that dealt directly with the Cuban Agency for Musical Authors Rights (CAMAAR). Similar agreements have also been signed with HMS Societies in Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago and Barbados.
