DILIA, Theatre, Literary, Audiovisual Agency is an association of authors and other copyright holders. Its goal is to provide copyright protection. The main activities are divided into two sections: the collective rights management and the agency.




Agency

The agency departments mostly focus on concluding licensing agreements regarding using works by both Czech and foreign authors. They provide legal service for both authors and users of their works as well as other related services (lending theatre scripts, consulting, works safekeeping etc.) Music department is responsible for publishing and hiring music material to both Czech and foreign musico-dramatic works. More detailed information can be found in the website section of each department.

 



Collective Management

DILIA performs collective rights management especially in the areas of literature and audiovisual media. In this scope it represents authors and their estate and collects remunerations and royalties that are subsequently distributed among them. Remunerations are collected also for book and printed periodicals publishers. Collective agreements are concluded for the whole repertoire within the limits set by the Copyright Act and authorization granted by the Czech Ministry of Culture. More detailed information can be found in the website sections for authors, publishers, and users.
