    Hi there!

    I have a song of mine in a commercial that will run during the Grand Prix. This will be a German-only broadcast.

    The local TV asked to compile a form with track name and composer name

      only if music is AKM/GEMA liable

    “.

    What does it mean?

    Thanks

    They want your name as it is registered with your PRO so you can receive royalties.

    Alright. I was misled by “only if music is GEMA liable”. Thought it was referring to “only if you are a german composer represented by GEMA.

    @ Wall_E, The last time a German company asked me for my PRO details about a track it turned into tens of thousands of dollars in performance royalties from GEMA, to my USA PRO, to my bank account. I am still collecting on the project. It was one of the largest ad campaigns I have ever been associated with. So short story: Just give them your pro details about that track asap.
