Koda’s October distribution takes place on Thursday 8 October. For a complete overview of the areas and performance periods included, please see the Koda distribution schedule
TV and Radio
The September distribution covers July and much of August for those TV and radio areas where distributions are made monthly.
As regards radio, distributions are made for the Bauer Media radio channels (The Voice, SOFT, NOVA and others), but for other commercial radio channels, the monthly distributions are still temporarily postponed due to uncertainties regarding the revenue base as a result of the coronavirus crisis.
As far as concerts are concerned, the October distribution includes all concerts where full reporting has been submitted and processed and where Koda has received all necessary information from the concert promoter (e.g. about ticket revenues per concert). As has previously been mentioned, the 2020 distribution rates for concerts have been reduced compared to 2019, as the coronavirus crisis has obviously caused a marked reduction in concert activity.
Ahead of the October distribution, Koda has received quarterly settlements from the British copyright society PRS (covering performances in Q1 of 2020) as well as semi-annual settlements from the French copyright society SACEM (covering performances in the second half of 2019). These settlements have been processed immediately and are included in this distribution.
