THE COLLECTION PROCEDURE FOR MECHANICAL RIGHTS
The intellectual property fees paid for mechanical recording and reproduction using material carriers are defined by the standardised international convention on the phonograph industry between BIEM and   IFPI . 
On the basis of this convention the amount of intellectual property fees is defined at 11% of the wholesale price of the sale of recordings, as this is defined each time by recording companies. 
According to the discounts foreseen by the convention, the producer pays an amount of 8,712 % of the wholesale price of the sale of the recording pro rata temporis. The above amounts are in effect for those producers who have signed the said convention. 
Regarding the pricing of DVDs, the amount of the intellectual property fees is defined at 6 % of the wholesale price pro rate without any other discount. 
For producers who have not signed the standardised convention for the phonographic industry, intellectual property fees on the basis of good faith, commercial ethics and the rules of competition are defined at the same level as for those who have signed. 
The same tarification applies to independent producers and is based on the tariffs list of our Organisation.
