How do music creators receive remuneration for their work in a grand rights production?
Buma doesn’t collect payment for the use of music in grand rights productions. Authors make their own agreements with the producers about the remuneration and use of their music.
In addition, we don’t collect payment when the music from an existing dramatic musical performance is reused in another performance or when only existing music by the same author is used. In this situation, it is important that the musical works are inextricably linked to the storyline of the performance. And no other musical works may be used.
Please note: music from a dramatic musical production, for example a song from a musical, can be broadcast on the radio or TV or recorded on CD. That’s why it’s important for music authors to register their musical works with BumaStemra.
