Public Screening

Are you planning a television evening outside the private sphere or a public screening of a sports event or television broadcast?

Screen/projection surface less than 3 m diagonal

If the broadcast is projected on a screen or surface with a diagonal of less than 3 metres, Common Tariff 3a (CT 3a) applies. If you are a SUISA customer and already have a licence for use of background music, broadcast reception and/or music on hold, you do not need to take any action. CT 3a also applies to public viewing on screens or projection surfaces with a diagonal of less than 3 metres.

 

If you do not play music or broadcast television programmes or films on your business premises but wish to stage a one-time public viewing, you can apply for a licence for this type of use here. We will then issue you with an invoice for the declared use. If this invoice is paid promptly, the permission for use in the invoiced period is deemed as granted. Once your payment is received, the royalties will be distributed to beneficiary composers, lyricists and publishers.

 

For more information on CT 3a, please go to www.suisa.ch/3a.

Screen/projection surface greater than 3 m diagonal

If the screen diagonal is larger than 3 metres, you can obtain the licence from SUISA based on Common Tariff 3c (CT 3c). The licence fee depends on the size of the screen and the admission fee, if one is charged. The fee is at least CHF 62.40 per day (if there is no admission fee) or CHF 124.80 (if there is an admission fee), plus VAT. 

 

Please send us the duly completed questionnaire. We will then issue the licence and invoice. Once your payment is received, the royalties will be distributed to the beneficiary composers, lyricists and publishers.
