By when do I have to report my music use?

There is no fixed period for this in general*, but we do recommend: The earlier, the better! This way, you can clarify any unresolved issues and are on the safe side. What’s important is that you notify us of your event before it takes place.

Here is some legal background for those who are interested: There is even a statutory obligation to notify music uses beforehand. After all, the general rule in business life is: If you want to use rights, you must acquire them beforehand.

*If you are a member of an association or an umbrella organisation with which a general agreement or blanket agreement has been entered into, it is possible that there are specific provisions regarding the number of days before the event before you must submit the music use notification. Your association or umbrella organisation would have to inform you of any such mandatory notification deadlines.
