Abstract: This article reviews models for collective management of copyright and related rights. From an international perspective, there are several models of managing and operating collective management organizations, and each of them has its own characteristics. Effectiveness and efficiency of a collective management organization (CMO) depends heavily on whether a country determines the legal status of the CMO appropriately, the approach of right acquisition, the system of dispute settlement, and the measure of controlling CMOs’ potential anti-competitive affects. Therefore, it is sensible for countries to develop a feasible model based on their unique situation. The article aims to describe different models under which CMOs operate, analyse the strengths, weaknesses, and conditions feasible for the CMO framework, and thereby suggest potential changes to enhance efficiency of controlling copyright.
