PlayRight is responsible for collecting, managing and distributing your rights in the Belgian territory. Collective management, however, consists of more than that, as PlayRight works closely together with similar societies abroad to collect the rights of all our members.
Since your works are not only distributed in the Belgian territory, PlayRight takes care of collecting your rights in countries with whom we have a bilateral agreement. This exchange allows you to collect your rights in all countries where your works are distributed and exploited.
This new record of rights collected abroad reflects the growing success of the Belgian repertoire abroad. Every single year, PlayRight is getting better at collecting these rights and we have now collected a record amount of 1.9 million € of international rights for 2019. We are not planning on stopping there!
Each year, PlayRight draws up an annual distribution calendar. In 2020, we will carry out two distributions of international rights, one in February and one in August.
Once paid, you can consult the details of these rights via your online portal: these provide more information about the nature of the rights (musical and/or audiovisual), their origin and, once PlayRight receives this information, the works associated with it.
Do you want to know whether PlayRight also collects your rights abroad? It’s very easy: just go to your online portal, click on the menu « Data » and then on the tab that says « Contact».
