PlayRight has just distributed all neighbouring rights for music recordings that were broadcast in Belgium in 2014. This distribution represents a total amount of 7.2 MILLION EUROS and permanently closes the distribution of the neighbouring rights for this reference year.
Music 2014 – Please note that this is the final, and therefore permanent, distribution of rights for this reference year.
A first distribution for these rights was realized in 2015 for this reference year (1.5 million euros). For this last distribution, your rights were calculated based on the repertoire that you declared before December 31th 2017, deadline to declare your recordings for this reference year.
WHERE DO MY RIGHTS COME FROM?
The rights distributed come from the private copying, the lending rights and the equitable remuneration.
HOW ARE MY RIGHTS CALCULATED?
To calculate your rights on the Belgian territory for music recordings, PlayRight matches the repertoires of the music recordings declared with :
- the playlists of radio stations and audience ratings
- and the Ultratop sales figures.
The performers (or their representatives) have six months after this payment to inform us with any objections to this distribution. Do not hesitate to contact your account manager.
