    Why are music video remunerations different for producers and performers?

    The law considers the performers on the video and the video’s producer in a slightly different manner. Because a music video is a cinematographic work, the music video producer has rights similar to a movie producer. Therefore, licence from the producer is required to play a music video in public. These licences are sold by Gramex. Artists or musicians performing on a video are also entitled to remunerations but with more specific terms. The law stipulates that Gramex may pay remunerations to performers if the music video has been filmed in Finland or in another EEA country and the included phonogram has been recorded in Finland.
