Koda’s November 2021 distribution took place on Thursday 11 November. For a full overview of the areas and performance periods included, see the Koda distribution schedule
TV and Radio
The November distribution covers all TV and Radio areas where distributions are made monthly. It primarily concerns performances in August, but in several areas you will also find that performances from September have already been reported, processed and are ready for distribution. The November distribution also includes monthly distributions for music used in commercials on channels such as TV3 +, TV3 Puls, National Geographic and Eurosport 1.
Online and Concert
As regards the Online area, the November distribution includes payments for Online Background 2020. This area includes distributions of revenues from digital services (primarily smaller AV services, web TV or websites with videos) that are infeasibly costly to handle and where Koda for resource reasons does not collect and process reporting. Instead, the distribution is based on reuse of reporting from the Interactive TV Services area.
As regards concerts, the November distribution covers all concerts where the music reporting has been processed and completed and where Koda has received all necessary information from the concert promoter (for example about ticket revenues per concert).
Koda regularly pays out revenues received from sister companies for the use of Koda members’ music abroad. Koda’s distribution rates reflect the individual companies’ distribution frequency and speed in their various distribution areas.
Prior to the November distribution, Koda has received major quarterly settlements from sister companies in Norway (TONO), Finland (TEOSTO), Sweden (STIM) and Germany (GEMA), meaning that a significant part of the distribution of revenues generated abroad concerns the use of Koda members’ music in these countries. Details on the distributions are listed below, indicating some of the main areas and periods.
