Art knows no borders

If you are a performer, a label, an event organiser and/or a music video clip producer, and have acquired neighbouring rights in the course of your artistic activities as set out in Art. 73 German Copyright Act, you are eligible for rights administration. It doesn't matter what nationality you are – art knows no boundaries.

Delegates and Associates

GVL beneficiaries have the opportunity to elect their delegates at the Rights Holders' Assembly, which takes place every four years. They steer the GVL together with the associates in the Associates’ and Delegates’ Assembly.

Report contributions

In order to receive remuneration, labels must report their repertoire and performers their performances. You can do this after concluding the performance contract in our portals.
