EGEDA is an audiovisual producers' rights management association which represents and defends in Spain the interests of audiovisual producers arising from the rights recognised and protected by the Intellectual Property Law.
Intellectual property rights are the tool enabling good advantage to be taken of the works in benefit of future cultural creation. Cinema is an art that needs an industry to create, develop and offer its results to the public. Thus, in this double aspect artistic and industrial activity, a film is made with the creative contribution of screenwriters, directors, actors and musicians… but also with the creative and economic contribution of the producers. This in turn makes them the owners of certain rights, intellectual property rights, which form part of the payment for their work and of the recovery of their economic contribution.
EGEDA, especially active and vigilant with respect to intellectual property rights, also provides services for the audiovisual producers it represents and for the audiovisual industry as a whole.
EGEDA seeks to promote Ibero-American cinema and lend its support to the audiovisual market by means of different events and activities
