The purpose of this WIPO Good Practice Toolkit for CMOs (The Toolkit) is to compile examples of legislation, regulation and codes of conduct in the area of collective management of copyright and related rights from around the world and to distil them into examples of good practice.

If they wish, Member States and other stakeholders may select tools from The Toolkit to choose an appropriate approach in view of their country’s particular circumstances, and decide on their own infrastructure for collective management.

This guide is not intended to prejudice in any way the operation of exceptions and limitations to copyright as they may exist in national law.

The Toolkit is available here.
