In June 2015, the Association Littéraire et Artistique Internationale (ALAI) held an international conference in Bonn on “Remuneration for the use of works: Exclusivity vs. other approaches”. Walter de Gruyter Verlag has now published the conference transcript, which contains contributions to the two conference days on 18.06. and 19.06.2015 and which illustrates issues from an international perspective. Here, Dr Martin Schafer publishes his contribution on “Possible roles for CMOs in new business models” in which he sets out and analyses various functions of collection companies in novel business models. Dr Martin Schaefer is a Member of the Board of ALAI Germany; the rights of collection companies and collection agencies are among his special fields of interest.
