Non-musical works: first distribution of €17,663

February 22 2024

PlayRight has just completed the first distribution of non-musical works for the reference years 2006-2023. The total amount received by our affiliated members is €17,663.03.

What are non-musical works?

As an artist, you may have played a role in an audio drama or sketch intended for broadcast on the radio or online. Know that these performances generate neighbouring rights. With non-musical works we refer to an artistic performance you make as a performer in the context of a sound recording. Note that only performances registered on a commercial recording AND broadcast on the radio are taken into account.

Which programmes are eligible? 

The infogram below shows all radio stations where PlayRight can collect rights for non-musical works for the reference years 2006-2023.

What should I do if I haven’t declared anything for 2006-2023?

It’s not too late yet! This is only a first distribution. PlayRight always distributes rights in two stages: a first one that takes place now, in 2024, and a final distribution in 2027. The deadline for declaring repertoires that can generate rights for the reference years 2006-2023 is 31 December 2026
Go to your online portal, click on the ‘Repertoire’ menu and then on the last tab ‘non-musical’. Then click on ‘Add declaration’.
