What is the synchronisation right?

The synchronisation right is the right of the composer or publisher of a work to decide whether someone may use (a part of) his musical work in a different context than the original.

Examples of this are:

- in TV or cinema films with short, medium or long playing time and documentaries that can be viewed in the cinema or on TV

- commercial, promotional and/or advertising products, such as:

- gadgets
- tablets
- smartphones
- toys
- greeting cards
- merchandising
- audiovisual products
- multimedia product
- non-commercial productions
- advertisements
