What are the distribution rules applicable for audiovisual ?

ADAGP applies distribution rules to share the sums received between individuals to allow a blanket licence. Read the distribution rules.

Does Adagp manage the use of my works in videos distributed abroad ?

Yes, because ADAGP is represented in almost 50 countries on 5 continents by its sister companies responsible for managing its catalogue in the countries where they operate. For such uses, our sister companies use their own schedule. In the countries where there is no collecting society, ADAGP acts directly.

If you receive an authorisation request from a foreign publisher or producer, please send it to us so we can pass this request on to the sister company concerned.

As far as royalties from foreign countries are concerned, our sister companies pay us on a twice yearly basis for the most part.

For further information, contact the Foreign Reproduction Rights Department: DREtranger@adagp.fr

What shall I do when I receive a reproduction authorisation request from you ?

To consult you, we email, fax or post you a reproduction and public performance authorisation request (standard form) containing details of the publisher’s project. It is important to reply as soon as possible so the publisher knows the outcome of its request. If you do not reply quickly, the project may be abandoned.

Please give us your email address if you have one as this will make the whole process quicker and easier.

After receiving authorisation from ADAGP, the user will implement the project and send a copy for approval by ADAGP.

On receipt of this copy, ADAGP will send the corresponding royalties invoice to the publisher and the sums received will then distributed to you after deduction of our costs.

What shall I do when I receive a reproduction authorisation request from a user directly ?

When you are contacted directly by a user, you must inform them that you have appointed Adagp to manage your rights and direct them to us so we can handle their authorisation request.

One of my works has been used without my name being mentioned, what shall I do ?

In accordance with article L. 121-1 of the French intellectual property code, “the artist benefits from a right to recognition of his name, status and work”. This “perpetual, inalienable and indefeasible” right is vested in the artist or his beneficiaries and therefore cannot be protected by ADAGP.

In this instance, you will have to deal directly with the publication to ensure this right is recognised.
