THE COLLECTION PROCEDURE FOR PERFORMING RIGHTS
No transaction in the process of the collection of intellectual property fees is done without the issuing of an invoice, or a legal receipt statement.
AEPI’s Audit Department supervises the control of invoices issued daily across Greece. They are audited and entered electronically, and then the invoices are kept in a special archive of the organisation.
Using this procedure, AEPI collects fees from more than 45,000 sources/users of music of all categories (entertainment centres, bars, restaurants, cafes, commercial shops, super markets, hotels, concert halls, exhibition spaces, cinemas, radio/television stations etc.).
The amount of the intellectual property fees paid for Public Performance in Greece is much lower than the average of intellectual property fees of the corresponding relevant organisations world-wide.
In the parameters of the definition of the tariffs, AEPI takes into account comparative data and the results of studies produced by international collaborations of legal and financial committees of CISAC (Tarif Committee).

General tarification criteria:
  • The national legislation of the respective country.
  • International conventions.
  • The domestic social/financial situation and the living standards of the respective country.

Special tarification criteria:
  • The area of the space.
  • The location (urban or rural locations, frontier areas, seasonal operation, etc.).
  • The importance of the use of music (required, necessary or useful).
  • The means of the presentation of the music (live, reproduction with mechanical means, etc.).
