International exchanges

Audiovisual International Music PlayRight

Collecting societies exchange information about the use of their respective repertoires in each country. This is usually done on the basis of playlists. On these lists, PlayRight will specify for which artists and recordings it claims rights . The rights are then calculated on the basis of the distribution rules operated by the sister company and paid to PlayRight.

Your repertoire may also be protected by neighbouring rights abroad. If your recordings are broadcasted in other countries, the collecting societies in those countries will collect neighbouring rights on your behalf. They will do so regardless of whether you are affiliated to them or not.
