GEMA (Gesellschaft für musikalische Aufführungs- und mechanische Vervielfältigungsrechte) is the German collecting society for music authors and publishers. It represents the rights of composers, lyricists, and music publishers by collecting and distributing royalties for the use of their musical works, e.g. in public performances or on the radio. It acts as an intermediary between music creators and those who use their music to ensure that creative services are adequately protected and remunerated.
Expertise: Management of performance and reproduction rights for musical works, licensing of music use.
