With effect from 01/08/2019, the Bundesverband Schauspiel e.V. (Federal Acting Association, short: BFFS) has become the third associate of the German Neighbouring Rights’ Management Organisation (GVL).
GVL has, together with its governing bodies, decided to replace the “budget for newly released sound recordings without relevant broadcast use” due to its disproportionately high distribution costs. Claims from public performance will, in future, be covered by the “direct distribution public performance”.
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.
