The last distributions of 2015

Last week, PlayRight finalized the calculation of neighbouring rights for musical recordings for a number of reference years:

  • For the reference year 2014: This was the first distribution for both classical and non-classical recordings.
  • For the reference years 2012 and 2013: The distribution was based solely on the playlists of Klara and Musiq’3

All members and their representatives were informed personally of the results.

The last distribution to take place in 2015 is planned for December and is concerning the transfer of rights from foreign territories to PlayRight members. The countries included are:

  • Austria
  • Canada
  • Croatia
  • Denmark
  • France
  • Greece
  • Hungary
  • Lithuania
  • Poland
  • Portugal
  • Slovinia
  • Spain
  • Sweden
  • The Netherlands
  • United Kingdom

This distribution will be made no later than the 23rd of December 2015

Reminder ! Don’t forget to complete your repertoire before December 31st, 2015 !



December 31st is the deadline to declare musical recordings broadcasted in 2010, 2011 and 2012. Please take into account that the office of PlayRight will be closed as from December 24th until January 3rd, 2016.

December 31st is the deadline to declare musical recordings broadcasted in 2010, 2011 and 2012. There is no deadline this year for audiovisual recordings, but next year there will be. More information about the deadlines and pending distributions can be found on our website.

In 2016, PlayRight will make a final distribution of neighbouring rights for the reference years 2010, 2011 and 2012.  This calculation will be based only on declarations made up to the 31st of December 2015.  Any declarations made after this date will not be taken into account, meaning that they will not generate rights for these reference years.

Therefore make sure your repertoire is up to date!

If you are not sure whether your repertoire is up to date or not, you can consult the complete list of your declarations, made by either yourself or your representative, in your online account via My PlayRight on our new website. Your dossier may still contain “declarations to validate”. These are mentioned in the left column of your online account. Please take the time to check these and confirm if necessary.

Please take into account that the office of PlayRight will be closed from December 24th until January 3rd 2016 !

So if you :

  1. still have questions,
  2. forgot your password
  3. or your login to your online account doesn’t work,

contact your account manager or send an email at before December 24th, 2015.

PlayRight’s new website and distribution calendar 2016 are online!

PlayRight’s new website is online since Friday November the 13th and we are quite proud about it!

A thorough analysis of the old website made clear that we needed a better structure, easier navigation and more information. So, for our new site, we have created 4 main sections to categorize information.  These sections are for information relevant to:

  • Non-members
  • Existing members
  • Information about the international context of collecting and distributing neighbouring rights
  • Information about the collective management society PlayRight C.V.B.A.

Another new addition is the “downloads” section where you can find all relevant documents, forms, leaflets and playlists to consult or download.

We also added direct access on the homepage to our distribution calendar since that is, in the end,  what PlayRight is all about.  The calendars for both 2015 and 2016 are now consultable on the site.

Please have a look at our new website and let us know what you think about it. Don’t forget to visit it regularly to stay informed with all the latest from PlayRight.
