Freedom of association

Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 

The Political Constitution of the United Mexican States recognizes in its Article 28 the right of association of workers and associations or cooperative societies in defense of their interests or the general interest.
In the same vein, Article 192 of the Federal Copyright Law recognizes collecting societies as protection entities for authors and holders of related rights with respect to their economic rights.
