June 2012 distribution is paid

Payments to domestic rightholders distributed on June 14 consist of:

  • Performing right royalties collected in Finland; EUR 12.3 million in total. Most of these royalties were accounted for performances in 2011. Payments from commercial radio and major concerts were accrued during the second half of the year only, as the corresponding royalties for the first half were already distributed in December 2011.
  • Royalties for the performance of Finnish authors' works abroad, collected by sister organisations: EUR 1 million. Part of these royalties were already distributed to rightholders in October and November of last year.
  • Online and mechanisation royalties collected by NCB: EUR 2.5 million.

In connection with the distribution, subsidies to authors and publishers domestic works requiring performance materials totalling EUR 195,000 are paid out of the funds for the promotion of Finnish music.
