We are one of the biggest collective management organisations for neighbouring rights in Europe. Please read on to find out more about our activity as representatives of our rights holders.
If a commercially published sound recording or a music video clip are offered for rental or lending, provided they have a profit-making purpose, remuneration entitlements arise for contributing performers, producers, event organisers or music video clip producers. In such cases, the party responsible for the rental or lending process must pay GVL such fees as raised by GVL for this kind of exploitation based on the "rental tariff".
The ZVV (Zentralstelle für Videovermietung, Central Organisation for Video Rentals) and the ZBT (Zentralstelle Bibliothekstantiemen, Central Organisation for library levies) manage the licensing and collection for rental and lending of commercially published sound recordings and music videos clips on behalf of GVL.
