What are the main sources of income of the performer artist?

 

THE INCOME OF THE PERFORMING ARTIST:

 

a) Sales of audio records, including digital records distributed on the Internet

 

The Recording Company receives money for each Record which is sold in the retail chain, either it is a CD, tape, vinil or mp3. A share of this money is owed to the Performer Artist in exchange for his related rights on the performance fixed on the Record (Phonograme). The Artist's rights from sales of Records are called "mechanical rights".

Usually, in Romania, the Recording Companies sign Recording Agreements with the Artists and get the related rights in exchange for a Royalty. On Artist's request, the Performig Collective Society (CREDIDAM) can colect and and pay the mechanical royalties due to the Artist.


b) Public Appearances

 

The Performer Artist has the right to be paid for every public appearance. The ammount of this payment vary depending on the Artist's market quotation.

 

c) Public Performance

 

A Record may be broadcasted only if an authorisation is received, usually in exchange for a payment. In Romania, CREDIDAM colects all payments from radio and TV stations, cable operators, restaurants, pubs, discoteques etc, and distributes them to the Performing Artists. CREDIDAM also collects and distributes to Performing Artists the rights on private copies.

 

d) Merchandising

 

The sales of mercandising (t-shirts, posters, breloques etc) can be an important source of income for well-known Artists.

 

e) Sponsorship/ Endorsment/ Advertising

 

This type of incomes become available to Performing Artists who have gained a huge popularity and have became attractive to companies who want to benefit from this popularity in order to help them promote their products.
