I AM A PRODUCER OF PHONOGRAMS

I AM A PRODUCER OF AUDIO-VISUAL FIXATIONS

For the purposes of INTERGRAM, subject to the terms and conditions of the Articles of Association and pursuant to the applicable wording of the Copyright Act, a phonogram producer is a natural person or a legal entity who or which takes the initiative and has the responsibility for the first fixation of the sounds of a performance of a performer, or of other sounds, or of representation of sounds.

The contractual relationship between the producer of phonograms and INTERGRAM arises from conclusion of a contract of representation.

Documents required for the conclusion of the contract of representation of rights of the producer of phonograms:

1. Contract of representation of rights of the producer of phonograms

The contract of representation of rights must be filled in two copies and both copies must be sent to the INTERGRAM address. One copy signed by INTERGRAM will be then sent back to the producer. One of such two copies must bear a certified signature of the rightholder, or a handwritten signature of the rightholder + the delivery of a clearly visible colour photocopy of the rightholder´s valid identity card containing his/her signature must be provided. A certified signature is not required in contracts of representation which  are signed on INTERGRAM´s premises. In such case, the rightholder signs the documents on site and his/her identity is verified by a competent employee of INTERGRAM from the identity card provided by such cardholder.

If the rightholder is a legal entity, the person authorized to sign is a member of the governing body of such legal entity as indicated in the commercial register of the country. If it is indicated in the commercial register that two or more members of the governing bodies are required to sign, all such signatures must be certified.


2. Instructions for consignation of remuneration from INTERGRAM

The Instructions for consignation of remuneration from INTERGRAM are intended for providing information regarding the bank, address and tax domicile. Should there be a change of the name or the bank, the Instructions form must bear the rightholder´s certified signature, or the rightholder may sign the form and send a clearly legible colour photocopy of the valid identity card containing his/her signature. After verifying the rightholder´s identity, the photocopy of the identity card provided by the rightholder will be shredded.

Affirmation of a phonogram producer is submitted by a producer in order to exercise the right to remuneration pursuant to Section 76 of Act No. 121/2000 Coll., as amended (i.e. the right to remuneration for the reproduction of the copyright work for personal needs) collected in the previous year. The Affirmation takes account of the income from the physical sales of carriers and downloading in the territory of the Czech Republic, as well as the income from on demand streaming of phonograms or audiovisually used phonograms in the  territory of the Czech Republic.

For the purposes of INTERGRAM, subject to the terms and conditions of the Articles of Association and pursuant to the applicable wording of the Copyright Act, a producer of audio-visual fixations is a natural person or a legal entity who or which has the responsibility for the first audio-visual fixation  or for whom  the another person does so on his own initiative.
