We distinguish between two areas.
Great that you are using music
Pay-outs in Germany
The majority of our pay-outs is sent to our members: Music creators and music publishers in Germany.
Pay-outs to other countries
We also pass on the collections due to them to the creators abroad. After all, music from international creators is also played in Germany.
Pay-outs to social purposes
We support social and cultural matters. We therefore make 10% of the distributable amount of the performing and broadcasting rights available for such purposes.
If you want to find out who the composer, lyricist or publisher of a musical work is, our Repertoire search will help you find them. This online service enables you to identify works. Once you have found the details, you can contact the participating publisher provided they are a GEMA member.
