What are neighbouring rights, and why are they important?

Neighbouring rights ensure performers are compensated when their music is played publicly, recognising their vital contribution to a recording. These rights are closely linked to copyright and are essential for the fair remuneration of artists.

Who is required to pay for the use of recorded music?

Broadcasters, such as radio and TV stations, and public venues that play recorded music, like restaurants and bars, must pay a fee for using these recordings.

Who collects and distributes neighbouring rights payments?

Neighbouring rights societies, operating under national copyright laws, are authorised to collect these rights and distribute payments to the rightful owners.

How is the usage of works and payments monitored?

Various technologies and methodologies are employed to monitor the use of works in different media and venues. Reports from broadcasters, venues, and streaming platforms help ensure accurate royalty distribution.

How do artists and producers receive their royalties?

Rightsholders must become members of a neighbouring rights society, which then licences their recordings, collects royalties, and distributes payments on their behalf.

Are neighbouring rights applicable to streaming services?

While neighbouring rights are typically associated with radio/TV broadcast royalties, there is a growing movement, especially in countries like Belgium and Spain, for artists to directly receive streaming royalties as well.

What types of public performances are covered under neighbouring rights?

Public performances include playing recorded music in places like restaurants, bars, nightclubs, cinemas, and at public events like festivals, as well as broadcasts on radio and TV.
