About us

GVL is a German collecting society which ensures that its national and international members get a fair payment for their rights. We represent artists, producers and organizers of artistic events and manage their neighbouring rights since 1959, reliably and passionately. We are committed to ensure that they receive their remuneration arising from the exploitation of their performances and productions. Our role is to mediate between rights holders and rights users. If it wasn't for GVL, e.g. radio, TV stations and each discotheque, intending to use music or audiovisual productions, would have to reach an agreement with all artists and producers involved. Vice versa, rights holders, one by one, would have to make certain they received their due remuneration. Instead, GVL ensures that a so-called "one-stop-shop" is available for both parties – rights holders and rights users. We issue licences for the world repertoire to the rights users who pay us licence fees which we then pass on to the rights owners.
