Levelling the playing field for independent music companies and their artists across Europe
IMPALA’s committee meets regularly to promote best practices by collecting societies. Current work includes redrafting IMPALA’s collecting society code of conduct and proposing modifications to IFPI’s own guidance. This is also in preparation for the upcoming review of the EU collective rights management directive.
We also participate in meetings of IFPI’s performance rights group (known as PRC meetings), and in the joint committee with WIN. We also participate in the distribution meetings for the MTV pan-European video agreement with VPL. On top of this, we produce regular reports for PPL with AIM summarising the IMPALA projects supported by PPL via its annual donation to AIM. This is the kind of model we would like to see in other collecting societies.
