GVL, the Society for the administration of neighbouring rights, finally received the overdue remuneration for private copies made on PCs for the years 2011 to 2013. GVL is entitled to a total of EUR 40.99m; the receivables in the balance sheet, blocked for several years, can thus be liquidated entirely.
Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Peter Ruzicka has been appointed to represent the group of conductors and music directors on the Board of GVL, with effect from 01 August 2014. As one of our long-standing Board members, he previously represented the group of event organisers.
On 01 June 2014, GVL welcomed Till Valentin Völger to the Board. Völger was elected by GVL's associates, the German Orchestra Association (DOV) and the Federal Association of the Music Industry (BVMI); he succeeds Benjamin Dickmann.
