What remuneration will I receive for the use of my music?
Radio and TV are calculated and paid by broadcast seconds. The value per second differs depending on the station.
Example: A new hit single (written by you) lasts for 4 minutes and is broadcast 1x on:
|Nederland 3 (TV)||= calculation 240 sec x 0.40 second value||= € 96|
|Radio 538||= calculation 240 sec x 0.1083 second value||= € 26|
Live performances (acts; venues) are calculated and paid on the basis of the number of performances
Example: The band in which you play (you have written all songs yourself) performs 30x a year (Buma), in small venues and cafés.
Around 22 euro net is available for distribution for each performance: 30 performances at € 22 (per set list) = € 660
Generally speaking, calculations are carried out on the basis of the production run (for independent productions) or on the basis of the number of copies sold (for large record companies).
Example: your new CD has been released (for independent productions). The production run is 1000 copies. All tracks have been written by you.
There are 13 tracks and the CD costs € 17 in the shops
The label / the customer pays (according to the rate) – € 1.18 per copy X 1000 = € 1180
Stemra’s administration costs are 25% = € 295
Stemra pays out € 1180 – € 295 = € 885 net That is € 68 per track
A distinction is made between ringtones, tracks on demand/sound carriers on demand (downloads), streaming, webcasts/Ipod-casts and e-cards. The use of downloads, ringtones etc. is categorised by provider or the user of the music. The payment per musical work is determined by multiplying the net amount available per download by the number of downloads per piece of music.
