B- type agreement

In the case of a B- type agreement, the remuneration due to the members of the other contracting party remains in the country where it was collected and is distributed to its own right holders to compensate for the remuneration that they would be entitled to get in the country of the other contracting party.

Such non-exchange agreements were concluded in the past in cases where the societies were not in a position to distribute remuneration to foreign right holders, due to a lack of usage and right holders' data - or where the distribution rules were not compatible.


SWISSPERFORM was able to replace several B- type agreements with A- type agreements and is planning to continue to do so - following the recommendation by SCAPR.
