1. HOW NEIGHBORING RIGHTS ARE COLLECTED AND DISTRIBUTED OUTSIDE OF THE BRAZILIAN TERRITORY?
ABRAMUS has reciprocity contracts with several societies around the world. Therefore, all that is collected by these societies are properly repaid to our members, if identified as from an ABRAMUS member. Besides that, we work in order to ensure that the repertoire from our members is updated around the world and in Brazil.
2. What should I do if my repertoire plays outside the country?
As a rule, all foreign societies have the duty to transfer the rights collected in their territory that do not belong to their members. During this process, what is identified as being owned by ABRAMUS members will be passed on during their distributions and we will repay it to the artists we represent.
Nevertheless, you can also make a query about your repertoire played in another country. In this case, we will get in touch with the society responsible for the territory where your music played and ask them for information about the local collection and distribution processes.
