Remuneration from other countries

The above statutory remuneration rights also subsist to a certain extent in various other European countries.

VGF asserts such rights in respect of German film works in these countries as well by applying to the various national copyright associations, and receives the associated remuneration for distribution to its members entitled to the payment of royalties. The national copyright association is responsible for determining the films that have been broadcast and the broadcasting dates.

VGF Berlin asserts rights in respect of foreign film works with the Austrian and Swiss copyright associations, so covering other German-speaking countries.
