If your music is played on the radio or television abroad, you do not need to report it to us, since this is handled under reciprocal administration contracts with our affiliated societies worldwide. However, you should note that many of TONO’s sister societies abroad use the so-called “sampling” method, which means that they receive playlists for TV and radio covering just a few weeks per year. These weeks are used to give a statistical basis for the calculation of royalties. You will therefore receive a distribution only if your work is included in the sample.
If your music has been performed in concerts abroad, you must remember to report them to us, so that we can follow them up with our international affiliates. You report a concert abroad in the same way as a concert played in Norway, on My TONO.
