Whether a newcomeror a star – Joining GEMA is worth it!
I put a lot of time and work into my lyrics. GEMA is making sure I get a fair payment for my creativity and that my authors' rights are protected. GEMA has my back and that gives me a good feeling.
Since I have had the support from GEMA, it has become much easier for me to indulge in and focus on my passion, my music. GEMA stands up for a fair remuneration of my works and has an open ear whenever I have a question.
We love to be live on stage and to carry the audience away with our music. Each concert is something special. As GEMA members, we receive a fair payment for our gigs. And, GEMA provides newcomers like us with its showcases the opportunity to perform all over Germany.
Our GEMA ensures that I am remunerated fairly for my lyrics and compositions – even, and particularly, when I’m not personally on stage. And it is amazing that we, with over 70,000 members, can have an important say in the shaping and the implementation of online and offline copyright. Together we’re strong!
