Robin Gibb Remembered 1949 – 2012

It is with great sadness that we report on the passing of Robin Gibb who in his later years was a strong and vocal champion of Artists Rights serving as the President of the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers (CISAC) for the past five years.

Robin served as the President of CISAC, acting as the voice of three million creators around the world as the leader of the members of CISAC’s 232 authors’ societies in 121 countries. Following a first term as president, Robin was unanimously re-elected for an additional three-year mandate in June 2010.

Below is his impassioned closing speech from the World Copyright Summit in 2009 in which he said, “I’m proud to be President of CISAC, and I will keep on fighting for creators’ rights as long as I can draw breath.”
