(TV AND RADIO)
How the music in broadcast is lincensed?
The Copyright Act introduces the institute of a ‘compulsory license” (the use of work for which the copyright holder’s consent is not required, but the holder’s right to remuneration is preserved). This means that a broadcaster (an operator of a radio station or television channel, online radio, etc.) may broadcast all phonograms released for commercial purposes provided it pays remuneration to copyright holders (performing artists and producers) through a collective management organization. Prior to broadcasting, such broadcaster is obliged to enter into a contract with INTERGRAM stipulating the amount of remuneration for copyright holders for such use and the method of its payment.
If you wish to enter into a contract or if you have other questions regarding the retransmission of broadcasts, do not hesitate to contact the Business and Licensing department:
