AARC currently collects private copy royalties for Indies from collectives in France (SCPP), Japan (RIAJ), the Netherlands (NVPI), Spain (AGEDI), Sweden (IFPI), Italy (ITSRIGHT), Belgium (SIMIM), and Finland (GRAMEX).
Pursuant to AARC’s agreement with NVPI, our Indie members are entitled to royalties based on their sales of sound recordings in the Netherlands during the royalty year (the years during which the royalties were collected). Data regarding the value of units sold in the Netherlands is sent by AARC to NVPI based on the information we collect from our Indie members. Since NVPI is preparing to distribute 2015 royalties, we are requesting that AARC Indie members send us their 2015 (January 1 – December 31, 2015) Dutch sales data. This data is due to NVPI by May 30, 2016. We must receive your Dutch sales data by May 27, 2016 so we have enough time to process all the data and send it to NVPI by its deadline. Please be sure to include only physical sales numbers.
Membership with AARC is required to receive these royalties. If you are not currently an AARC member, please register and submit your Dutch sales data by May 27 to qualify for Dutch private copying monies.
This request is for Dutch sales data only. A request for Indie sales in Japan will be sent out later this year.
