2. Indirect fees
In accordance with the law, certain uses of sound recordings and music videos are exempted from the producer's exclusive right to authorize (Droit exclusif d'autoriser). In this case, users do not have to obtain authorization but must pay a fee and they then transfer to the collective management companies representing the various rights owners (authors, producers, and performers). These companies then distribute the renumeration to their members.
When a sound recording is broadcast on the radio, in a
nightclub, or in a public place equipped with a sound system (restaurant,
shopping center, hairdressing salon, etc.), no authorization is required from
the performer. In return for this legal license, these rights owners are
entitled to a payment called "Fair Remuneration", which is collected
by the SPRE's intermediary and then paid out to the societies of producers (50%) and performers (50%).
Private Audio Copying
The remuneration due for private audio copying is paid by the
manufacturers and importers of blank media to the relevant collective
management company: COPIE FRANCE. This remuneration is then paid out to the societies of authors (50%), producers (25%), and performers (25%).
Private Audiovisual Copying
COPIE FRANCE collects the fees due for private video copying from
the manufacturers and importers of blank recording media. The remuneration is
then paid out to the producer, author and performer groups in equal proportions
