Koda’s April distribution 2023 took place on Thursday 20 April. For a full overview of the areas and performance periods included, see the distribution schedule
TV og Radio
The April distribution covers the use of music on all TV and radio channels for which distributions are made monthly. As regards the TV2 and DR channels, this includes all the February performances where processing is complete, making them ready for payment to be made.
As regards the other channels where distributions are made monthly, April sees the first distributions for 2023 being made. In those cases, the distribution covers music use in the month of January. This applies to TV channels such as DK4, Viasat (Action, Hits, Premiere, Family, Series) and Sky Showtime 1 and 2 as well as to the commercial radio channels. The distribution also includes an annual distribution for 2022 for Uptown TV.
Online and Concerts
As regards concerts, the April distribution covers all concerts where 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). This distribution marks the beginning of distributions for concerts held in 2023 within most areas. For example, this applies to concerts held at various Danish venues, church concerts, theatre concerts etc.
As regards Online use of music, the April distributions covers music use in February 2023 on Nuuday Musik (including YouSee Musik and Telmore Musik). As of 2022, Nuuday Musik transitioned to in-house processing at Koda, meaning that we have been able to include it in the flow of monthly distributions.
Koda regularly pays out revenues received from sister societies for the use of Koda members’ music abroad. Koda’s distribution rates reflect the individual societies’ distribution frequency and speed in their various distribution areas.
Prior to this April distribution, Koda has received new quarterly distributions from sister societies in France (SACEM), USA (BMI), South Korea (KOMKA), Australia (APRA) and Canada (SOCAN), and much of this month’s distributions within this field comes from these countries. The distributions cover performances in various areas up to and including Q3 2022.
