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.

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!
