Multiple beneficiaries under Joint Tariff 1 (JT 1)

Cable networks carry copyright works and services looked after by all collective rights management organisations. For this reason, their remuneration is governed by a joint tariff. All five collective rights management organisations are involved in the JT 1 and all distribute monies to their rightholders. Collecting monies from the cable networks is dealt with by SUISSIMAGE. In return, SUISSIMAGE retains 2% for its work. The net distribution amount is allocated as follows:

  •  ProLitteris 7.03%
  •  SSA 3.28%
  •  SUISA 17.25%
  •  SUISSIMAGE 47.44%

Each society then covers its own distribution costs from the distribution amount and deducts a proportion for culture and welfare funds. The monies are then distributed among the entitled members.
