Dear Mr. Hien,

RE: PAYMENT OF PUBLIC PERFORMANCE LICENCE FEES FOR THE USE OF MUSICAL WORKS BY VIETNAM AIRLINES (VN)

We refer to our letter to you dated 4 August 2006.  As you may be aware, your representatives have met up with representatives of VCPMC on 12 September 2006 to discuss this matter further.  During the meeting, there was some concern raised with regard to whether the rights in foreign musical works used by Vietnam Airlines have been properly entrusted to VCPMC for administration through our Singapore CISAC member-society, COMPASS.  It is in connection with this concern that I am writing this letter.

In my previous letter, I had mentioned that copyright owners outside of Vietnam who are members of CISAC have contracted their rights to VCPMC for the licensing and collection of royalties thereon in the territory of Vietnam.  This is achieved through a reciprocal representation contract signed between COMPASS and VCPMC dated 23 November 2005.  The signing of this agreement was in fact witnessed by your country’s Vice-Minister for Culture, Mr. Tran Chien Thang, the Director-General of the Copyright Office of Vietnam, Mr. Vu Manh Chu, as well as other government officials.  As I have also previously stated, this agreement would include musical works from countries such as the United States of America, the United Kingdom, Japan, Hong Kong, France, Spain, Malaysia, Singapore, China and India, to name some.

The main reason as to why the key foreign societies have chosen to transfer the rights to VCPMC through COMPASS is primarily to reduce the workload and costs of administration on VCPMC.  If this arrangement had not been put in place, VCPMC would have had to contact a couple of hundred such societies world wide in order to secure all the necessary rights to act on behalf of foreign right owners.

CISAC would thus unreservedly confirm that COMPASS has legally and properly entrusted to VCPMC the right to license and collect royalties for the public performances or communication to the public of foreign musical works pursuant to the aforementioned reciprocal representation contract.

We hope that the above explanation adequately allays the concern expressed by your representatives during the meeting held on 12 September 2006.  If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us or VCPMC.

Yours Sincerely,

(This is an electronic transmission and no signature has been imprinted)
