Six distributions in 2017

International rights, music recordings broadcasted in 2013 & 2016, and audio-visual recordings broadcasted in 2010 & 2013: the 2017 distribution calendar is online!  

2017 will be a busy year as PlayRight has 6 distributions planned including two final distributions, namely:

  • Distribution of rights for audio-visual recordings broadcasted in 2010
  • Distribution of rights for music recordings broadcasted in 2013

Together with the new 2017 calendar comes the deadlines calendar informing every member about the deadline to declare their contributions for a specific reference year. Only one deadline for 2017: all affiliated members will have to declare their music contributions broadcasted in 2014 before the 31/12/2017.

The distribution and deadline calendars are gathered in one document downloadable here.

PlayRight distributes 2.4 million euros of neighbouring rights

PlayRight has just calculated the first distribution of neighbouring rights for music recordings for the reference year 2015. Specifically, this is the first distribution of equitable remuneration and lending rights collected in 2015. This is the first of two distributions, the final one scheduled for 2019.

WE’RE COOKING WITH GAS!

PlayRight has just calculated the first distribution of neighbouring rights collected last year for musical recordings. This distribution includes both equitable remuneration and lending rights for the reference year 2015, for performing artists.  With this distribution PlayRight continues to distribute rights 1 year after they have been collected, as with past years.

MUSIC 2015 ?

These rights are made up of equitable remuneration and lending rights. Musicians who already declared their recordings (broadcast in 2015) will normally receive a payment in this distribution.

With this first distribution, about one third of the rights collected for recordings broadcast in 2015 will be paid out.   In 2019, a final distribution for this reference year will follow in which all remaining rights will be paid.  This way everyone who still needs to declare recordings for 2015 has the opportunity to do so (provided they declare their recordings before 31/12/2018).

The results of this calculation have been communicated either by email or post to our members. PlayRight’s account managers are ready to answer any specific questions regarding this distribution.

We have one last distribution planned for 2016: distribution of foreign rights. This distribution will take place in December.

Finally, members should check before 31/12/2016 if they still have music recordings (relevant to 2013) or audiovisual recording (relevant to 2010) to or to validate.  After the 31/12/2016 we are closing these reference years so make sure your repertoire is up to date. This can be done by accessing your online profile in the PlayRight Portal. More information about this deadline can be found here
