Protecting OPM with SoundsRight

Recently OPM gets support with a collective effort of recoding labels as well as offices involved in keeping rights of songs protected. Sound Recording Rights Society, Inc. (Soundsright),  is a Collective Management Organization (CMO) which was recently accredited by the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOPHL) to represent the record labels and producers in the Philippines. 

The Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOPHL) presented the Certificate of accreditation to Soundsright Officers and Board Members on May 14, 2015 at Victorino's, Quezon City. Respresentatives of the various labels  and governing bodies were present like Mr. Rene Salta (GMA Records), Mr. Alvin de Vera (Alpha Music), Soundsright President Atty. Marivic Benedicto (Star Recording / ABS CBN Film Productions), Soundsright Chairman Mr. Ramon Chuaying (Universal Records), Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOPHL) OIC Atty. Allan Gepty, OMB Chairman Ronnie Ricketts, and Mr. Tony Ocampo (Viva/Vicor Music).

Soundsright authorizes business establishments to use copyrighted sound recordings owned by the member record labels and producers and collect royalties on behalf of the copyright owners under section 209 of the Intellectual Property Code (Republic Act No. 8293).
