At GVL, we issue licences to broadcasters for the use and exploitation of commercially published sound recordings and music videos on the radio and on TV, in accordance with the assigned rights we manage for our rights holders.
Radio broadcasters represent a significant group of licensees with GVL. GVL issues licences to private and public radio broadcasters for the use of music that has been released on sound recordings in return for appropriate remuneration.
