However, just registering as a member of GEMA is not enough so that we can pass on the licence payments we received for your music to you.
NO PAYOUT WITHOUT WORK DECLARATION
Maybe you haven’t realised this yet: Each new release has to be entered into your GEMA profile as a work declaration! That’s really simple and takes less than two minutes.
It's that simple
- Check in your GEMA profile which of your songs are already listed under My repertoire.
- Register your new releases as soon as possible using your GEMA dashboard under work declaration.
- Enter participating contributors and work title. Get your registration confirmation. Done.
Really no big deal. If you want to be on the safe side, here is a YouTube tutorial on “Registering my works” for you:
Newcomers are dear to us! This is why we want to support you as a new GEMA member as well as we can. Do you have a question or are you stock anywhere in the online menu? Just get in touch, we'll help you, quickly and hassle-free.
GEMA ensures that you get paid if your music is used in public.
Put it simply:
We oblige everyone who uses music to pay the money that you are due as an author and pass it on to you (in the form of royalties – what’s that?). We need to know which songs are yours so they hit your account!
Please don’t hesitate to give us feedback - whether your work registration went through and where we have room to improve. We can only show you what we’re made of in practice, for sure!
Let us know how we can support you!
We look forward to hearing from you.
All the best and... Lots of success on your channels,
Your GEMA team
