Only with this information can we determine your entitlement to remuneration. To do this, search for the relevant productions in our database and provide information on the type of your contribution. Please note: As we often only receive broadcast reports from the broadcasters with a delay, you will sometimes only find your productions in meine.gvl a few months after they were first broadcast. We recommend that you report your contributions as soon as possible, because a partial amount will be paid out to you in the first three years.
If your productions were used in the broadcast channels we evaluate, you will receive remuneration.
