Theatre music – bespoke or existing
In this area, TONO has entered into a separate agreement with the Association of Norwegian Theatres and Orchestras (NTO), which obviates the need for TONO rights holders to negotiate directly for performances put on by NTO members.
The agreement between NTO and TONO covers the right to perform and the right to receive royalties for the performance of the works managed by TONO.
From January 1st 2020, the rule that 50 per cent of the booking fee is counted as an advance of the performance royalty, is no longer valid.
This means that the theaters must pay remuneration from the first performance.
