The second and last distribution of international rights 2021 has happened! This distribution concerns the neighbouring rights for music and audiovisual recordings, collected by PlayRight abroad. The total amount that we distributed amongst our affiliated performers 446.501€.
Any artist who becomes a member of PlayRight, has the option to grant us a worldwide mandate in his or her contract. Based on agreements with our sister societies abroad, we collect information on how the repertoire of our artists is used in over 40 countries. This allows us to collect the remunerations accordingly.
Neighbouring rights coming from abroad are calculated according to the rules of the local collecting society. PlayRight does check the quality of their data in detail and handles the payment of all calculated rights once received.
Each distribution of international rights is based on several reference years, both for music and/or audio-visual recordings. This particular distribution of international rights contains the following territories and reference years:
This second distribution of international rights follows a first distribution of international rights 2021, which we carried out in February 2021.
This new distribution of rights brings the total amount of distributed rights coming from abroad to 952.000€.
