NEW: Information about our distributions as of 1 April 2022 can be found here.


Submit claims quickly from now on - here is our new online service for your claims.

We will provide you detailed statements in the GEMA Download for each distribution date. These statements include details on uses and works included in the distributions.  The past has shown that it happens that you must claim missing uses or faulty distribution parameters. To this end, we provide you with the new area Claims in our Online Portal from 1 June 2021 onwards. By way of a data query, we provide you with step-by-step instructions including the known work research and a deadline checking option. At the same time, you help us processing the data by transferring complete data to us which we require to process your claims. Afterwards, you receive a confirmation of receipt in your portal mailbox. After we have concluded the checks of your claims, you receive the result in the usual format.

We continually expand the service throughout the next few months. Forms for uses such as in broadcasting rights or releases of sound recordings follow at the relevant distribution dates. We look forward to your feedback!
