"GEMA FREI" ??

Post by Rudy Mueller » Tue Jan 01, 2019 5:54 pm

Our Wendlstoana group has several copies of the "Schuhplattler von A-Z" booklet published by the "Chiemgau-Druck, Traunstein.

Commented on the cover is the note "Alle in diesen Heft aurgeführten Stücke sind GEMA frei" , and on the publisher's page "Isargau, München 1980/1985".

A question for you EU participants: may we create electronic copies of his material for our members, and others, without fear of repercussions?

Hellllllp!!!!!

“GEMA-frei" music is completely royalty free, ie the composer of this music is not registered with a collecting society, meaning that such music can be used/downloaded by anyone, for private and non-commercial purposes.
