We are one of the biggest collective management organisations for neighbouring rights in Europe. Please read on to find out more about our activity as representatives of our rights holders.
If you want to assign the fiduciary management of your rights to us, you need to sign an agreement for the assignment and administration of rights. There is no charge for signing an agreement for the assignment and administration of rights with GVL - it's free.
Once you have concluded the contract, you will receive the access data for the producer portal label.gvl. You can enter your repertoire and state which rights you hold in the relevant recordings. GVL receives the necessary information on broadcasts from selected radio and TV stations and can allocated the played recordings based on your information provided in label.gvl. Based on the broadcast minutes of each recording, the relevant annual pay-out is based on the distributable amount available for producers of sound recordings.
We work closely with the German Music Archive (Deutsche Musikarchiv) which observes the statutory mandate to collect and store all music published in Germany. We therefore gladly pass on the request that all labels should send the German Music Archive a set of two copies for each of their releases free of charge.
