Virtual Annual General Meeting ("AGM")

Between 29 September and 1 October, GEMA held its AGM this year. It took entirely place in virtual space due to the corona pandemic. Resolutions of the Members' Assembly included, like every year, several changes to regulatory documents, among them a provision allowing a more efficient and effective licensing of platforms with UGC content. There was a united view that additional support measures for affected music creators that had been particularly affected by the pandemic will be required.
