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.
What does this mean for you as a producer of sound recordings?
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.
We decided that we would like to make the option to provide notifications for the distribution year 2013 available once more and to extend the registration deadline for the final distribution 2013 to 10 November 2018.
Next Wednesday, 12 September 2018, the European Parliament is going to vote on the review of the Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market After a ballot in July the review which is supported by authors, artists as well as producers, went into a further round of negotiations.
In the past year GVL has, as part of the system changeover, introduced a unique identification number for all its members and partners - the so-called GVL-ID. Going forwards the GVL-ID will replace the "old GVL-ID" resp. contract number on our correspondence with you, our members (e.g. payout information and detailed reports).
