Event organisers

GVL represents event organisers

We are glad to be an important partner to event organisers of artistic performances in Germany like yourself when it comes to representing your rights.

For event organisers of artistic performances, we mainly represent secondary rights. Those include primarily the claims to remuneration from private copying levies. As far as primary rights such as reproduction, distribution and broadcasting live recordings and online rights are concerned, the collective management organisation Veranstalterrechte mbH (event organisers’ rights) is in charge. GVL has agreed on a joint collaboration with the bdv (Federal Association of the event organisers' industry) in January 2012.

Submit your contributions

We recommend to submit your contributions as quickly as possible because a partial amount is paid out to you in the first three years already.

The full remuneration is paid at the end of the reporting period. This gives you three years for each distribution year to report your broadcasted participations. Everyone involved in a production process can be given sufficient time to report.

GVL does not consider the following as event organisers

Businesses in charge of the organisation and operation of an event, commissioned by radio or TV broadcasters, aren't event organisers in the sense of GVL's definitions. Only organisers that carry all the risks and initiate an event can receive the respective remuneration.
