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.
We are proud of you, our members. Every day you accomplish something that's new, artistic and creative – and we proudly support you. Who else can claim that they collaborate with 160,000 performers and over 12,000 producers of sound recordings all over the world?
If you are a performer, a label, an event organiser and/or a music video clip producer, and have acquired neighbouring rights in the course of your artistic activities as set out in Art. 73 German Copyright Act, you are eligible for rights administration. It doesn't matter what nationality you are – art knows no boundaries.
We are honoured that we can currently count about 170.000 performers, producers, organisers and music video clip producers among our members.
We're passionate about such a wide range of artistic groups: We represent conductors, instrumentalists and musicians (soloists, band musicians, orchestra performers and studio musicians), artistic producers, narrators and raconteurs, music video clip directors and producers, solo singers, choir singers, actors, stunts and stunt performers, dubbing actors and dubbing artists, dancers, producers of sound recordings and labels, event organisers as well as literary directors and dubbing directors.
That's what makes our mission so exciting. Day in, day out.
