If your company uses music that is audible to your customers or guests, it must, according to Norwegian law, pay to those who own the music. The provisions are in section 21 of the Copyright Act and the regulations of the Act .
The Ministry of Culture has authorised Gramo to collect and distribute the money (remuneration) on behalf of the musicians, artists and record companies.
The purpose of Gramo is that you will not have to deal directly with each artist, musician and record company when you use music, radio or TV that is audible to your customers and guests.
When your company pays Gramo and Tono for your music use, it follows Norwegian law, together with over 16,000 other companies in Norway.
