Public lending right

AKKA/LAA administers public lending right in Latvia since 2006.

The remuneration is distributed among groups of subjects of rights (authors, performers, phonogram producers and film producers) in proportion to the frequency of lending the objects of copyright and neighbouring rights. Remuneration attributable to performers, phonogram producers and film producers is transferred to the organization of collective management representing the relevant subjects of rights.


Remuneration to the subjects of copyright is distributed using the method of proportional distribution, on the basis of the statistics of lending per year obtained from a research conducted at selected libraries of Latvia where distribution by selection was monitored.
