The Battle Firing Up Prominent Artists in Israel
In recent years, leading artists in Israel have alleged a lack of transparency in how Eshkolot, a company that oversees artists' royalties, is managing their money. Several of these artists are stakeholders of the company, and some previously held various positions in the company.

Eyal was quoted as follows: "On the recommendation of the court, Shaham – The Israel Actors' Association conducted a comprehensive and in-depth mediation procedure with Eshkolot.
