Local Copyright Law
Contrary to the assumptions of some, the rights of music creators are protected under regional copyright laws.
In the UAE, Federal Law No.7 of the year 2002 Concerning Copyrights & Neighbouring Rights lays out the ground rules as it pertains to using music in any form. In it, the rights of producers (labels) and composers & authors (or their representative music publishers) are protected, without the need for any new laws to be passed.
Music rights are an important facet of any thriving media industry, and we have been at the forefront of pioneering these issues in the region for over a decade, on behalf of music stakeholders.
