It’s the second distribution of audiovisual rights this year. This time, the distribution concerns the neighbouring rights coming from audiovisual recordings that were broadcast and/or exploited in 2020 and 2021. PlayRight distributed 714.839€ to its member-artists. This is a first distribution concerning these reference years. This will be followed by a second, final distribution in three years.
The remunerations of these rights stem from the private copying and the lending right.
PlayRight always distributes your rights in two phases. For audiovisual 2020/2021, this is the first distribution.
The first distribution sets the deadline for declarations of the recordings that may generate rights for the reference years 2020/2021. 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.
This distribution is based on your declared repertoire as registered in our database. If you still have recordings to declare for this period, you have until the 31/12/2024 to do so.
To calculate your rights for audiovisual performances, a global amount of rights is allocated to each audiovisual work that appears in the playlists.
This amount is determined based on:
The overall amount allocated to the work is then divided among the performers, according to their role in the recording.
Note that since 2021 there are only two roles that can be attributed to your performance (before this, PlayRight offered three choices of roles). This change was made following the adoption of new general regulations.
For this distribution, the Board of Directors has established a list of selected channels as well as a minimum audience rate to be reached for each program.
TV channels of which the programs are taken into account for this final distribution:
Music performances in an audiovisual recording might also generate neighbouring rights. In other words, a musician can also generate audiovisual rights for the inclusion of his or her music in a work, provided that the music was performed specifically for the audiovisual work in question.
