When do we make distributions?

To see when we make distributions, check our distribution schedule udbetalingskalender


Music that is played live attracts larger distributions: live music generates six times the usual per-minute value. In addition to this, the per-minute value of live music is multiplied by the time factors indicated below:

Duration in minutes Time factor
0 - 0,59 0,5
1 - 3,59 0,8
4 - 6,59 1,2
7 - 9,59 1,7
> 10 2,5
Conditions for distributions of live music
  • The music is performed by one or more performers – either live or as playback.
  • The broadcast is produced by or for Greenlandic/Faroese radio.
  • Any given broadcast can qualify for the increased ‘live factor’ rate no more than twice. To qualify a second time, the second broadcast must be aired no later than within the next calendar year.
Reduction for station ID, logos, trailers etc. 

We apply reductions to distributions for station IDs, call signs, station sound design, trailers and similar performances of music that was not created exclusively for a particular show and which is primarily used outside of/in between the actual scheduled broadcasts. The reduced value is set at 10% of the relevant TV channel’s usual per-minute value.

A corresponding reduction is applied when carrying out distributions for extensive use of background music within individual programmes, for example when using long – looping or otherwise extended – jingles faded into the background of e.g. narration, speaks, news reports, interviews and the like.


Koda receives full (100%) reporting from Greenlandic and Faroese radio. To the extent that the programmes broadcast are identical to those broadcast on DR and TV2, we reuse the information provided for these. The channels are legally obliged to inform Koda of all their music use, so there is no need for you to notify Koda if your music is used on KNR or Kringvarp Føroya.
