Many countries have hometaping (usually referred to as “private copy”) laws, as well as rental/lending laws.  As in the case of AHRA, these laws include royalty rights for recording artists and record companies. Each country’s laws include unique requirements and processes for collection and distribution of the royalties. The collectives also have their own processes and requirements regarding data, tax and other information, which can be overwhelming for an individual claimant.


AARC ensures that all the requirements are satisfied and that the processes are properly followed with regard to each and every one of our members.

AARC has negotiated agreements with the following foreign collectives:
