Self-management of synchronisation rights
Synchronisation rights concern the rights to combine a piece of music with visual images. Authors who are members of Koda can choose to manage their synchronisation rights themselves.
For any author wishing to manage his or her synchronisation rights on their own, the first step is to enter into an agreement with Koda on this. The author must fill out an application form. Once the application has been approved, Koda will send confirmation of this approval along with a guide on what managing your own synchronisation rights entails.
A music publisher can manage an author’s synchronisation rights if the author has entered/enters into an agreement on self-management with Koda and asks his publisher to manage those rights.

Synchronisation rights for foreign works
When registering a catalogue agreement for foreign works, a Danish sub-publisher can state that it wishes to manage the synchronisation rights for all the works included in the agreement. In order to qualify for self-management, the sub-publisher must be allowed to collect 100% of the revenues generated by these rights.
