Members can now find practically a complete inventory of feature films and series which have been broadcast for the first time in 2016 and 2017 on TV channels that are analysed by GVL on www.artsys.gvl.de.
The EU Parliament has voted in favour of the EU Copyright Law reform on 26 March 2019 and thus paved the way for a modern copyright where both users and creators benefit from fair regulations. GVL, the German Neighbouring Rights Society, welcomes this decision.
GVL regrets having to announce that the distribution which had originally been scheduled for September must be postponed once more. The period during which the payouts will take place is now expected to be in December 2018. For technical reasons, the launch may well be protracted into next year.
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.
