I would like to offer music for downloading on my website. Which tariff is applicable and how do I register the music?

If you offer music for downloading on your website, our tariff for websites VR-OD 10 (II.2.b.2 licence package music on demand download) takes effect. It is applicable for pure music (audios) as well as music videos. You can notify us of music usages under this tariff in our Online Portal.

In addition to the licence for music on demand download, you can acquire another, cheaper licence for audio samples of up to 90 seconds duration (€180 net/year). This reduced licence only takes effect in connection with the offers of music on demand downloads. More details on this topic and the retrieval numbers and prices can be accessed at our tariff for websites.

If the use exceeds the threshold values of the VR-OD 10 (Retrieval threshold :15,000 p.a.; income threshold: €24,000 net p.a.), tariff VR-OD 7 shall take effect.

Please note that you may have to obtain other necessary rights directly from the rightsholders, independently of the licensing process with us. By way of example, we want to mention neighbouring rights/master rights (label) when you use original master recordings and film synchronisation rights/adaptation rights (usually the music publisher) at this point.
