Record Companies

Gramex manages recording rights of record companies based on labels.

Once a record company has been registered as right holder to a label, the company will automatically receive all remuneration generated for Danish airplay on that particular label.

The airplay reports from TV/radio stations to Gramex always contain name of label for each track.
