SWISSPERFORM, founded in 1993, is the collective management organisation for neighbouring rights (also called related rights) in Switzerland and the Principality of Liechtenstein, supervised by the Swiss government. SWISSPERFORM operates based on an authorisation granted by the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property (IPI) and on a licence issued by the government of Liechtenstein.
SWISSPERFORM manages secondary usage rights. SWISSPERFORM claims against users on behalf the neighbouring rights' owners. The rights arise in connection with the secondary usage.
