Our music is fair, and part of the GEMA World Repertoire. The GEMA administers its own policies, click here for more information.
The use of our music in commissioned productions is generally free of charge, provided that the commissioned broadcaster has a GEMA contract. Such a contract stipulates the respective rights to be observed (GEMA, GVL, etc.). The producer simply has to send a notification of the music titles used to the broadcaster. The broadcaster takes care of the notification of the relevant parties.
