Monthly distributions are made for performances in April 2021 on Nuuday Musik (YouSee Musik and Telmore Musik), which recently transitioned to internal processing at Koda, meaning that this service is now included in Koda’s monthly distributions.
Subsidised concerts 2021
Distributions are now made for Subsidised concerts 2021, marking the final year of such subsidisation within Koda’s distribution areas.
As of January 2022, subsidies are replaced by a new application-based work support scheme operating via Koda Kultur. Following a recommendation from Koda’s board of directors, the amendment was approved at the 2020 general meeting and now takes effect from 2022 after a one-year delay due to the general impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on live concerts.
The new work support scheme and associated application deadlines will be further described at koda.dk over the course of the autumn.
Prior to the June 2022 distribution, Koda received new quarterly settlements from sister societies in the United Kingdom (PRS), Germany (GEMA) and the USA (ASCAP), respectively, and a significant part of the total distributions within this field comes from those countries. The distributions primarily cover performances in 2021 within the areas of TV, Radio and Online.
The June distribution includes a biannual distribution from NCB for physical sales. It also covers mechanical rights on streaming services and YouTube in the USA, for which NCB has collected revenues through new collaborations with The MLC and Orfium. For details, see the NCB newsletter.
