WIPO performances and phonograms treaty summary
The WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty (WPPT) deals with the rights of two kinds of
beneficiaries, particularly in the digital environment: (i) performers (actors, singers, musicians, etc.);
and (ii) producers of phonograms (persons or legal entities that take the initiative and have the responsibility
for the fixation of sounds). These rights are addressed in the same instrument, because most of the rights
granted by the Treaty to performers are rights connected to their fixed, purely aural performance
