Live music

If music is played live on a DR radio channel, the revenues generated by that music can be augmented by a so-called ‘live factor’, multiplying the usual per-minute value of that channel by six.

Terms and conditions for distributions of live music:

  • The music must be featured as part of a broadcast produced by DR and broadcast as a concert.
  • Any given broadcast can qualify for ‘live factor’ revenues no more than twice. To qualify a second time, the second broadcast must be aired no later than one month after the first broadcast.

7 - 9,59 1,7

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 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.
