Record labels and EBU reach an agreement
GENEVA, SWITZERLAND – Last June, the European Broadcasting Union and Universal Music signed a deal by which all Eurovision Song Contest 2014 songs revenues will be attributed to the specific record label not only from the compilation CD but also from individual sales (as singles).
Various record labels like Warner Music and daWorks protested alongside with countries like Norway and Sweden on the issue as many participants in the 2015 national selections declared they will not submit a song under this agreement.
The solution reached states that the record labels can sell the songs on digital platforms. If they cannot provide that service then the rights go automatically to Universal Music Denmark.
