ABBA member Björn Ulvaeus, along with songwriters Max Martin and Niclas Molinder, formed the foundation in 2016.
The Music Rights Awareness Foundation is joining forces with the World Intellectual Property Organization to boost its potential to help music artists be more fairly compensated for their creations.
Under the agreement announced on Monday between Sweden-based Music Rights Awareness and WIPO, a United Nations agency, the partners will form a “WIPO for Creators” consortium that will organize activities that raise awareness of intellectual property rights.
“The current COVID-19 crisis has reinforced the importance of the creative industries in society and the need to ensure that creators are justly remunerated for their work,” Francis Gurry, WIPO’s Director General, said in a press release. “This can only happen through an effective copyright system that provides both the incentives and the rewards for the creative process in an increasingly global and interconnected digital content marketplace."
