C3S is now registered as a European Cooperative Society




Düsseldorf, 31.03.2014 – Last Friday, the Cultural Commons Collecting Society SCE mbH was entered into the register of cooperatives of the local court of Düsseldorf (No. GnR 506). The C3S SCE is therefore now vested with legal capacity and capable of acting. Now, the first employees will be hired and the development project, which is supported by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, will be launched on May 1st.

“The entry into the register of cooperatives has been the last missing link. Now we are finally able to get going”, rejoices Meik Michalke, Managing Director and one of the initiators of the C3S. “It was a long way and plenty of work from the Startnext crowdfunding campaign until today.”

Wolfgang Senges, Managing Director along with Michalke and also one of the initiators of the C3S, says: “The foundation and the great support we received from our community have given us the necessary backing.
After the foundation followed the assessment by the cooperative union, which again was the condition for the entry into the register. Only after the registration we are able to receive the revenues for the shares that were subscribed to via Startnext, which, until now, were
held in trust there. Thus, the equity capital is completed, so that the project, which is supported by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, can be started.”

Michalke adds: “It was the moral support and the trust we have receivedfrom our community that enabled us to survive such an administrative marathon. We have been working at the development of the C3S for more than four years. Now we have reached our most important milestone so far and are ready to start – with, and for, our more than 800 members. The
next step will be the fulfillment of the requirements of the German Patent and Trademark Office, so that we will finally be approved as a collecting society.”

Attorney Meinhard Starostik, Chairperson of the supervisory board of the C3S, says about the legal and political significance: “Europe prevails, also with regards to collecting societies. The future European Union Directive on collecting societies and online licenses of musical works corresponds in the C3S SCE at the level of copyright allocation and licensing. Through the registration as a European Cooperative we are now vested with legal capacity and capable of acting all over Europe. We have founded C3S at exactly the right time and hope to commence full business operations next year.”

About the C3S

The C3S started in 2010 as an initiative for the founding of a modern
collecting society for music.
An increasing number of musicians can not, or do not want to, be
represented by the GEMA. The C3S is conceived as a European cooperative
association (not as an economic association), where all users have the
same right to vote (not only those with a high income). It is the goal
of the C3S to use modern communication technology in order to enable
uncomplicated processing and optimal fairness of distribution.
Unlike the exclusive representation of an artist’s full catalog of
works, which is required by the GEMA, the C3S will allow the licensing
of individual works. Apart from the classical copyright, the support of
all Creative Commons licensing contracts will for the first time create
market equality for alternative licensing concepts. After the successful
start in Germany, the area of certification will be gradually expanded
all over Europe.

Registrations filtering, coauthors in profiles and more…

Safe_Creative_My_registrations_-_2014-03-24_15.09.02We continue making improvements to our premium and higher Safe Creative accounts and now we want to share some of them with you all. We really hope you find them useful!:

  • Registration list filtering: When you have dozens or hundreds of works, it can get to be a bit difficult to manage them, so we’ve introduced the ability to introduce filters to make it easier to work with them: You can filter by status, type of work, type of license applied and in corporate accounts is also possible to filter them by clients you or your company represent.
  • Automatically add request to coauthors of works in registration profiles: When you add new or edit registration profiles you can now set coauthors to be invited each time a work is registered under that profile. This is a simple way to automate the process when some registrations must always associate one or several coauthors, as in the case of music bands, etc…
  • Safe_Creative_Edit_work_1403190384711_-_2014-03-24_15.08.31Upload evaluation versions from editing page: Now it’s much easier to upload evaluation versions of works as it will be done directly from within the editing page of the registration. You have only to go the registration item for which you want to upload an evaluation or demo version and click on the button next to “evaluation” in the “Files” section. You may upload a file for third parties to have a limited view of the work, such as the first chapter of your book, or a few seconds of a song. Slightly further to the right you can configure which of all the files can be downloaded from the specific information registration page: the entire work or the evaluation file.

Better registration from Facebook in Safe Creative

imagesWe’ve listened to your comments about the automatic registration from Facebook and have come with some changes in the way in which the works are recorded through the social network:

  • Now you can make registrations from Facebook pages you manage too!
  • Type of content to be registered can be defined from the beginning: text or images.
  • You can opt to have the system automatically write as a comment, the link which will point to the information page of the work.

To use this features we highly recommend removing the automation that you already have and re-enlist it, as we will need new permits.

With the basic account you can include an automation of this type, with the premium account 5, 10 if you have a professional account and in case of corporate ones as many as 50.
