Have you authorised IPF, k.o. yet?

IPF, k.o. manages the rights of all performers' and phonogram producers’ rights holders - including yours.

If you have participated as a performer or a phonogram producer in creating a phonogram published for commercial purposes that has been communicated to the public, you are entitled to receive payment. Furthermore, you should receive payment in case of reproduction of phonograms for private or other internal use. Heirs and other parties the rights have been transferred to are also entitled to receive remuneration.

Since the above mentioned rights may, according to the law, only be managed collectively, IPF, k.o., the only Slovenian collective management organisation with a permit issued by the competent authority to manage such rights, collects the rights revenue from users on behalf of all the performers' and phonogram producers’ rights holders.

How?

Authorize IPF, k.o. and register your performances and phonograms. If you wish to authorize IPF, k.o. as a natural person, please complete the Rightholder mandate form for natural persons. On the other hand, if you wish to authorize IPF, k.o. as a legal entity, kindly complete the Rightholder mandate form for legal entities. Don't forget to indicate whether you are a performers' or phonogram producers’ rights holder.

Based on the provision of Article 19 of ZKUASP and Articles 9 and 13 of the IPF, k.o. Statute, a submission of the mandate form to IPF, k.o. shall also be deemed an application for membership, unless expressly indicated otherwise by the rights holder. IPF, k.o. shall keep up-to-date records of the rights holders that do not wish to become its members, allocate and pay the rights revenue they are entitled to, in the same manner as to its members.

By selecting the WW (World Wide) option, you authorize IPF, k.o. for all the countries with which we have concluded bilateral agreements. Here is the list of all the countries in which IPF, k.o. represents you at this moment.
