Max Rumney, Pact`s Deputy CEO and Chief Operating Officer, said: “We look forward to renewing our negotiations with WGGB and LDC to update our existing agreement. In the meantime, after discussions with the WGGB and the LDC, Pact agreed that rates should be increased and that the new rules should have a forum to ensure that our agreement remains useful to both producers and authors. Co-written script mini-views are prorated and the portion is agreed upon when the part is under contract. Z.B. two authors of a 90` coin if on an agreed basis 50:50, each receives a 45` award.

Translations of plays, prose and verses are payable at two-thirds of the prices that accrue to each original translator and author. If you are dramatizing an English translation, a producer must clarify the rights to the translation and the underlying work. 2/3 of the prose for the dramatization rate is paid to both the original author/publisher and the British translator/publisher. If you do not sign the BBC`s application, your initial contracts remain valid, but your work cannot be provided for new purposes and, in practice, it is unlikely that your work will be reused. Members often complain that their work has become inaccessible, which is why we strongly advise you to take care of this agreement. Do you need to talk to someone?
