SAZ general meeting with clear positions
The participants of the general meeting on Friday, February 14, 2022, had, in addition to the review of the past months in the accountability report of the board, especially two topics that were discussed very engaged and with great participation: the intended contract adjustment of Ravensburger and the handling of authors' rights at HABA or at its subsidiary Heldbergs. In the case of Ravensburger, an extremely critical attitude emerged, because no decision with possible negative effects could be made on the basis of non-transparent statements. The status of existing contracts had to be preserved. At HABA, there was a clear, condemning position on the handling of intellectual property rights by editors of the publishing house. The SAZ will be commenting on this in detail shortly.
