Since 1959, GVL – the German Organisation for the Management of Neighbouring Rights – has represented the interests of performers and producers of sound recordings. It is our core belief that whoever renders artistic performances or creates an economic foundation for them must receive money for the exploitation of such efforts. At, GVL, we register and process the utilisation of these accomplishments to ensure our rights holders receive fair remuneration.
- Over 170,000 rights holders have entrusted GVL with the management of their neighbouring rights.
- More than €248 mio were collected by GVL for its rights holders in 2021.
- More than €240 mio were distributed by GVL in 2022.
