The remunerations that lie at the basis of these rights come from the private copying and the lending right collected for the audiovisual works that were broadcast and/or exploited in Belgium in 2016, 2017 and/or 2018. This distribution follows on a first distribution that took place in October 2019 (reference year 2016) and September 2020 (reference years 2017/2018)
PlayRight distributes your rights in two stages: a first distribution and a second, final distribution. The first distribution sets the deadline by which you can declare the recordings that may generate rights for the reference years 2016, 2017 & 2018. After this deadline it is no longer possible to declare your performances for these reference years. A Non-declared repertoire, hence, will not generate neighbouring rights.
Between these two distributions, PlayRight now carries out an additional distribution. This time, 73.259,57€ is being paid out to direct members of PlayRight: 33.997,62€ for 2016, 25.251,47€ for 2017 and 14.010,48€ for 2018.
This additional distribution concerns audiovisual recordings that were broadcast and/or exploited in Belgium in 2016, 2017 and/or 2018.
This distribution is based on your declared repertoire as registered in our database.
No panic! If you still have recordings to declare for the reference year 2016, you’ve got until 31/12/2021 to do so, and for the reference years 2017/2018 until 31/12/2022.

In 2022 and 2023 the final distributions will take place.
Keep an eye on the distribution calendar to avoid missing a deadline!
For this distribution, the Board of Directors established a list of TV channels that are taken into account in the calculation in accordance with our General Regulations. These channels must be aimed at a Belgian audience.
Good to know: PlayRight relies on its providers to receive the playlists of the selected channels. Consequently, we do not always receive these data on time. This list of channels is, therefore, not definitive and will be adjusted during the final distribution.
A global amount of rights is allocated to each audiovisual work that appears in the playlists. This amount is determined based on the duration of the work, the time of broadcast and the market share of the channel. The total amount allocated to a work is then divided amongst the performing artists who have participated, depending on their role on that recording.
Music performances in an audiovisual recording might also generate neighbouring rights. In other words, a musician might also be entitled to audiovisual rights for the presence of his or her music in a work, provided that the music performance was produced specifically for the audiovisual work in question.
In case you’d have any questions regarding this distribution, please don’t hesitate to contact your Account Manager. You can find his or her contact details via the left wing in your online portal.
