• Fingerprinting technology launched at ARD and ZDF

    The public broadcasting companies have decided to use a service provider to verify the music use in their programmes by way of fingerprinting and therefore to continue to improve the quality of their broadcast usage reports from 2019 on. At GVL, we welcome this technological enhancement in terms of our members.
    What does this mean for you as a producer of sound recordings?

  • Payout period postponement: Information on our distributions

    Due to technical reasons, GVL regrets having to postpone the distributions scheduled for September to October/November. We expect to start carrying out the pay-outs for artists at the end of October / beginning of November. The pay-out for producers is scheduled to take place in November.
