In March 2007, CISAC proposed a set of draft commitments in order to set a deadline to the Commission's proceedings. Essentially, these commitments were:
- On membership: CISAC and its members agreed to allow copyright holders to move freely between different collecting societies.
- On territoriality: Collecting societies agreed to group up and grant cross-border licenses for music on the internet, over satellite and cable. The licenses are, however, subject to a complicted system of requirements and limitations, which, CISAC says, is necessary to "ensure that authors and their works do not suffer the effects of a potentially harmful downward spiral in royalty rates".
- On exclusivity: Collecting societies agreed to delete the exclusivity requirement from their contracts.
The Commission decided, on 14 June 2006, to market-test the commitments.
