AARC currently collects private copying/hometaping royalties for Indies from collectives in Belgium (SIMIM), Finland (GRAMEX), France (SCPP), Italy (ITSRIGHT), Japan (RIAJ), The Netherlands (NVPI), Spain (AGEDI), and Sweden (IFPI).
Pursuant to AARC’s agreement with AGEDI, our Indie participants are entitled to royalties based on their sales of sound recordings in Spain during the royalty year (the years during which the royalties were collected). Data regarding the value of units sold in Spain is sent by AARC to AGEDI based on the information we collect from our Indie participants. Since AGEDI is preparing to distribute 2015 royalties, we are requesting that AARC Indie participants send us their January 2015 through December 2015 Spanish sales data. This data is due to AGEDI by November 21, 2016. We must receive your Spanish sales data by November 18, 2016 (5pm Eastern) so we have enough time to process all the data and send it to AGEDI by its deadline. Please be sure to include only physical sales numbers.
Registration with AARC is required to receive these royalties. If you are not currently an AARC participant, please register and submit your Spanish sales data by November 18 to qualify for Spanish private copying monies.
This request is for Spanish sales data only. A request for Indie sales in Japan has been requested in the same e-mail that brought you to this page. The next request for foreign sales data will be for Dutch sales next year.
Not a participant? Register with AARC first, and then return to this page to submit data.
Sales data will not be accepted after 11/18.
