Airplay lists

Please find below lists with played recordings registered with airplay in our system for the respective years.

Updated March 21st 2022


What to look for in the lists:

  • Recordings registered with your company as rights holder that are incorrect and that you cannot claim for the time period.

  • Recordings registered to other company that are incorrect and that you can claim for the time period.

  • Recordings registered with “No rights holder” that you have the rights to claim for the time period.

  • Recordings registered as “Not protected”, where you can provide new information that changes this.

How to report rights holder changes:

1. Open the airplay report

2. Add your information in the brown columns of the row containing the recording you wish to claim

3. Send the rights holder claim file to rikard.haugen@gramo.no


All claims must be accounted for

This means:

In most cases the mandatory information related to the repertoire like ISRC, P-Line, Producer name etc. is enough to determine the validity of the claim made.

In cases where Gramo is unable to verify the validity of the claim made by claimant from the mandatory fields reported, claimant must add additional information.

Examples of such cases can be:

  • Producer of the related recording/s available publication (release) p-line is not the same as the actual rights holder in our territory.

  • Producer of the related recording/s available publication (release) p-line in our territory is not the same as claimants.

  • ISRC registered in gramo’s base and/or release is not the same as the one given in claim and Gramo, cannot determine if recording is of the same version, or version is not the same.

  • Product is licensed to other party in our territory.

All examples resulting in a mismatch of available information related to the recording and the listing in the claim.

Explanation of status given in claims:

Status: "Rejected"

If there is a mismatch in information without any additional form of document provided, or link to information that clarifies the claim is "Rejected".

Rejections are presented with a comment that explains why the claim is rejected.

Note: If the comment to the claim is just a reference to a p-line, this p-line refers to the track version that has received airplay (green columns) and not your reported version.

Status: "Pending dbl claim"

If the claim is made valid and there are other rightsholder/s with conflicting claim, the claim is "Pending dbl claim".

In the case of dbl claim, the claiming parties are informed and referred to resolve the dispute themselves via negotiations, mediation, arbitration or the court system, and to notify Gramo of the final decision. Future payments are frozen pending this.

If dbl claim is with another society like PPL, Gramex etc. we advise you to contact them directly.

Status: "OK (Accepted)
If the the claim is made valid and there are no other rights holders claiming the same repertoire the claim is "OK (Accepted)"


Case processing rules for double claims
The song must be protected – what does this mean?
