About us

Zavod za uveljavljanje pravic avtorjev, izvajalcev in producentov avdiovizualnih del Slovenije - Zavod AIPA (Collecting Society of Authors, performers and Film Producers of Audiovisual Works of Slovenia) is an organization whose primary purpose and activity is the collective enforcement and securing of the rights of the authors, performers, and producers of audio-visual works.

A permit to regulate this area was issued to Zavod AIPA by Urad za intelektualno lastnino Republike Slovenije (The Intellectual Property Office of Slovenia) in October 2010, in this after a 15-year period without institutionalized and transparent rights management.

As of the date of issue, or rather finalization, of this permit, the previous temporary permit number 800-3/00-3 dated 24 January 2001, issued to Združenje SAZAS for collective copyright enforcement in the case of cable retransmission of audio-visual works, became null and void.

Zavod AIPA carries out activities under the Zakon o avtorski in sorodnih pravicah (Law on copyright and neighboring rights), permit 31227-1/2008-129, issued by Urad za intelektualno lastnino Republike Slovenije (The Intellectual Property Office of Slovenia) on 11 October 2010, and contracts with and authorizations by coauthors of audiovisual works, performers in audiovisual works, and film producers of audiovisual works.

  • gives permission for the use of works from the repertoire of protected works under similar conditions for similar types of use;
  • informs users of the amount of compensation it suggests, and enters into agreements with them as to the conditions of use for protected works;
