ECCO Director Jeoff Venner On Royalty Collections

Local Director of Eastern Caribbean Collective Organization (ECCO), Jeoff Venner, said the organization continues to play a major role in the collection of royalties for the creative works of individuals.

He was speaking on the police on the Beat programme aired on NBC Radio on Monday, which focused on the roles and functions of ECCO – a society of writers & publishers of music.

Mr. Venner said ECCO is a non-profit making organisation that collects fees by issuing licences to music users granting them permission and authority to the restrictive acts as defined in the Copyright Acts of the region.
Mr. Venner also said ECCO was formed in response to a call for representation from creators in the other Eastern Caribbean countries.
