The Association of International Collective Management of Audiovisual Works (AGICOA; French: Association de Gestion Internationale Collective des Oeuvres Audiovisuelles).

History[edit]

Set up in the eighties, it is a collecting society undertaking collective rights management for over 7,000 worldwide audiovisual works producers/distributors and/or their assignees (the rightsholders) in the area of cable TV and similar retransmission means. AGICOA collects royalties in their names and distributes them among the rightsholders.

AGICOA is set up as an Alliance of some 14 organizations. The coordination center is headquartered in Geneva.

AGICOA, together with CISAC and FIAPF, is a founding partner of ISAN_IA, the International Agency which delivers the ISO standard, ISAN (International Standard Audiovisual Number), a voluntary numbering system for the identification of audiovisual works.
