The Caribbean Development Bank - CDB intends to be the leading catalyst for development resources into the Region, working in an efficient, responsive and collaborative manner with our Borrowing Member Countries (BMCs) and other development partners, towards the systematic reduction of poverty in their countries through social and economic development.
COSCAP - COSCAP is the acronym for the Copyright Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers Incorporated. COSCAP is a non-profit entity incorporated under the Companies Act of Barbados. Its key function is to administer the “non-dramatic” performing, transmission, broadcasting and reproduction rights in the musical works of its members and the members of affiliated societies. COSCAP does this by acting as a collective administration society negotiating “blanket licences” with music users which provides them with access to COSCAP’s very extensive repertoire
ACCS - Founded in 2000, the Association of Caribbean Copyright Societies serves as a Regional Center, whose task is to accurately monitor and maintain a centralized Caribbean database, thereby ensuring acceptable data standards for all incoming and exported information on the works stored within this database.
ACCS also acts as the communications “link” between the Caribbean copyright societies, facilitating regional integration and concentrated efforts in one common direction. ACCS can be viewed as the “umbrella” organisation which encompasses the author societies of the region, presenting one common voice on issues relating to Intellectual Property and authors’ rights.
Above all, the principal aim of ACCS is to place regional authors, composers and publishers in a better position to collect royalties from international markets.
