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.
