Facts, Figures and more


GVL - in sound and image

As a joint society, GVL appeals to a rather large audience. So that we can explain our daily business and make the context even clearer, we use a multitude of information formats and media. Our videos of the series “GVL explains” and infographics are particularly well received; we published quite a few of them in 2022.

GVL represents your neighbouring rights worldwide. Our infographic shows how this works. Rights holders must grant GVL the mandate to manage their international rights to benefit from this service. This way, GVL can claim production used all over the world and pay on to its rights holders.
