Distribution of royalties for a musical work
The EAÜ applies two methods of distribution for royalties: automatic royalty distribution and a specific percentage. The automatic distribution of royalties is based on the table below. In the case of a specific percentage, the percentage of each author’s contribution to the work shall be entered when registering the work.
The total royalty share (in percentages) of all authors of a work shall be 100% and the publisher’s share shall not exceed 33.33%. The publisher is entitled to participate in the distribution of royalties by the EAÜ if the author, or his/her heir, and the publisher have entered into a relevant agreement.
