The Uganda Federation of Movie Industry (UFMI) is the only registered and certified Copyright Collecting Society that manages the rights of all the Audiovisual works. And as a Collecting Society therefore, UFMI is the ONLY legitimate body for the Audiovisual Repertoire that issues Copyright Security Devices (Banderoles). In Uganda, collecting societies are catered for under Part VII of the Copyright and Neighboring Act, 2006. A collecting society, also known as a Copyright Collecting Agency or Copyright Collective Management is created by Copyright Law to engage in collective rights management. Collecting Societies have the authority to license copyrighted works and collect royalties as part of compulsory licensing or individual licenses negotiated on behalf of its members. Collecting Societies collect Royalty Payments from users of copyrighted works (people who buy or use copyrighted films) and distribute these royalties to Film Copyright Owners (people who make or own films).  
The Uganda Federation of Movie Industry hereby prescribes the use of Banderoles that is hologram stamps in relation to audiovisual recordings/cinematography films intended or offered for sale, rental, hiring, lending or otherwise distributed to the public for commercial purposes in Uganda. The most important thing to note here is: Copyright Security devices (Banderoles) are employed to STOP piracy in the Ugandan Film industry. Banderoles are in other words dedicated to eliminating cheap imitation of movie products from the marketplace. UFMI, a collective management organization has for this matter dedicated whatever it takes to designing high quality and pretty much sophisticated Copyright Security Devices to protect movie products from becoming counterfeited.
ONLY copyright owners or their agents shall be able to purchase banderoles from Uganda Audiovisual Copyright Management Society. All copyright owners shall be required to apply for and register their works for copyright protection and in case of transfer of rights, one shall be required to produce the necessary supportive documents from the author/producer to prove ownership. The UFMI General Secretary shall issue a list of all copyrights owners and their respective titles to the National Treasurer to authenticate every title's assignments for copyright protection.For any additional information or inquiry in relation to any transaction under these regulations
