Producer Rights Denmark
A merger of CAB, Filmkopi and Filmret
The organisation Producer Rights Denmark (PRD) is a merger of the three organisations CAB, Filmkopi and Filmret.
Since 2015 the boards of CAB, Filmkopi and Filmret have worked closely to achieve and accelerate a simplification and streamlining of the current structure and administration of the three organisations. The annual meetings of Filmret have continuously informed of the ongoing work, and on the extraordinary annual meeting on 29 May 2017 a unanimous annual meeting made a provisional decision to merge CAB, Filmkopi and Filmret, with Filmret as the continuing organisation.
The merger became a reality on 27 June 2017 at a second extraordinary annual meeting. Simultaneously a new set of statutes was adopted, including a new name; Producent Rettigheder Danmark, Producer Rights Denmark.
The statutes of PRD have been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the act on collective management, including requirements for transparency and co-influence of the rights holders.
Thursday 28 September 2017 the first extraordinary general meeting in Producent Rettigheder Danmark (PRD) was held. The primary subject on the agenda was a board election, including two substitutes, based on the new statutes.
At the constitution of the newly elected board, the chairman and the vice-chairman were elected. It was subsequently, by draw, decided who would sit on the board for a period of 1 year and 7 months, and who would sit on the board for just 7 months, until the ordinary general assembly in April 2018.
In April 2018 the first ordinary general meeting in PRD was held. Five board members and two substitutes were re-elected and three additional board members have been appointed by the board of PRD cf. the statutes.
Members of the three former organisations CAB, Filmkopi and Filmret are automatically members of the now merged organisation Producer Rights Denmark (PRD).

Distributions post merger
The future distributions post merger will be processed on the same basis as prior to the merger. The business areas will remain the same, and as a producer and rights' owner you will, as per usual, be asked to claim you rights via email or via PRD's new website www.producentrettigheder.dk.
The only change will be that the sender as regards to the future will be PRD (instead of the three former organisations) together with the administrator Filmret ApS and back office Registration Denmark ApS.
In the beginning of 2018 a new webpage for PRD was launhced, including a new login. The login has merged the three former organisations' information regarding rights and distributions into a more simple and informative structure.
Filmret ApS is the administrator of Producer Rights Denmark (PRD). Filmret ApS was established by the three former organisations CAB, Filmkopi and Filmret in June 2015.
