DILIA, theatre, literary, and audiovisual agency (founded in 1949) is an unincorporated association of authors and other copyright holders. The aim of its business activities is to provide copyright protection. Its activity is divided into DILIA collective rights management and agency.
DILIA performs collective management of copyright and other rights related to copyright based on the authorization granted by the Ministry of Culture, and in accordance with the relevant provisions of the Copyright Act. It operates in the disciplines and areas identified by the decision of the Ministry of Culture to grant the above permission, which covers relations to both domestic and foreign entities. In practice, this activity includes e.g. concluding contracts for representation in the collective management of copyright; concluding collective agreements with the operators of cable television, with television and radio stations, with importers and manufacturers of copy machines and copy services operators; concluding reciprocal agreements with foreign copyright organizations and distribution of royalties and compensation fees to copyright holders.
DILIA also carries out agency activities and mediates concluding licensing agreements for the use of works by both Czech and foreign authors. It focuses primarily on theatre, literature, media and other types of use of copyrighted works. Individual departments of DILIA provide simultaneously with the above mentioned activities a number of other services relevant to a particular agency field – these range from publishing theatre texts, providing information and consulting services to the lease of musical materials to both local and foreign musico-dramatic works.
DILIA is a member of non-governmental international organizations CISAC, IFRRO and SAA.
