Status and registration

Registration and appropriate status form are required in order to pursue the activity.

A legal entity must be organised to pursue a non-gainful activity, and carry out its operation in accordance with the purpose of the establishment and operation.

Each activity that is pursued in the market to generate profit and an activity whose pursuit means that the entity competes in the market with other entities is deemed gainful activity.

A legal entity may pursue only the activity of collecting societies in the field of copyrights. A legal entity may not register and pursue two or more activities.

A collecting society may operate only on the basis of a licence obtained from the Slovenian Intellectual Property Office and within its scope.
