Do you use music for your business?

Music enhances the business when used as background (restaurants, hotels, supermarkets, waiting rooms, etc.) or it represents the very resource for business, as for radio or television, clubs, shows. Imagine a restaurant without the pleasant and welcoming effect of music!

Requesting a license from the Union of Phonogram Producers in Romania is legally mandatory for those societies using ambient music or using music as main resource in business. Law no. 8/ 1996, with its subsequent amendments and addenda, regulates the copyright and related rights of the authors, performers and recording companies on regard to the usage of created and registered phonograms. UPFR is a body appointed by the Romanian Copyright Office (ORDA) Decision to license the usage of music and to collect the remunerations owed in the collective name of the music producers.

Authorisation for playing music in public, broadcasting or streaming granted by UPFR license implies the users to pay a fee, at the values established through the methodologies in force. The validity of the UPFR license for the non-exclusive use of music is 3/6/12 months, depending on the option expressed by the user and on the type of license.

  1. Public performance and dubbing Licenses
  2. License for Public performance with background use

AMPRENTARE REPERTORIU

Ce este BMAT Vericast?

BMAT este companie de renume specializată în servicii de monitorizare a muzicii difuzate de posturile radio și TV (și nu numai, inclusiv alte servicii unde muzica este utilizată în domeniul ambiental), acoperind atât cataloage naționale, cât și internaționale.

Conform deciziei AGA nr. 9114/23.06 2021, incepand cu 01.07.2021, UPFR utilizeaza rapoartele de monitorizare BMAT in distributia remuneratiilor colectate. In acest caz este important ca repertoriul dumneavoastra sa fie amprentat in baza de date BMAT.

Pe de o parte, procesul de amprentare este unul gratuit ce presupune un efort minim din partea dumneavoastra, pe de alta parte de el depinde gradul de identificare al repertoriului dumneavoastra cat si banii distribuiti de UPFR, in perioada urmatoare, in baza acestui repertoriu.

Rapoartele de monitorizare pentru aceste canale vor fi incarcate in sistemul de distributie, iar datele din aceste rapoarte vor fi comparate cu baza de date Repertoriu din gestiunea UPFR.

Astfel, pentru a avea o identificare cat mai buna a fonogramelor, va rugam sa amprentati  in baza de date BMAT fonogramele ale caror drepturi le detineti.

Pentru realizarea procesului de amprentare, BMAT ofera mai multe solutii, diferentiate in functie de categoriile si numarul de fonograme, solutii enumerate mai jos:

  • - Amprentare prin Vericast Upload (gratuit, pentru toti producatorii)
  • - Amprentare prin FTP (doar pentru producatorii care detin un abonament Vericast)*

*Amprentarea prin FTP este recomandata pentru producatorii care detin cataloage mari si se poate efectua si prin intermediul UPFR (gratuit) sub conditia ca fiecare producator sa puna la dispozitia UPFR fisierele audio si fisierul excel completat cu metadatele corespunzatoare.

Amprentarea se realizeaza in conturi distincte, in functie de tipul fonogramei amprentate (fonograma de comert sau fonograma publicata in scop comercial/librarie muzicala).
