GVL represents legal successors
The estate of deceased artists also comprises their neighbouring rights. Many heirs choose GVL for the management of such rights - and for good reason.
The law protects neighbouring rights over a period of 70 years and they pass on to the heirs - it is therefore possible that remuneration for such productions is paid out after performer's death: If productions continue to be broadcast on the radio or on TV stations during the remaining term of protection for neighbouring rights, remuneration is due to you as the rightful heir.
More than 160,000 performers worldwide have put their trust in us when it comes to managing their neighbouring rights. We would gladly manage this task for you as an heir to a deceased artist.
