  • 6 Voluntary Payment Event

We at HOER are convinced that granting usage rights to the performance in return for marketing it on the HOER channels is a fair model. However, it is also our opinion that the artist should receive monetary compensation. HOER is at this point in the process of transforming from a raw idea that solely relied on voluntary work to a sustained business that finally pays employees as well as you as an artist. All available resources are currently used for developing a sustainable business model. 

If HOER generates an operating profit from subscriptions after all costs, taxes and potential debt repayment deducted, we will use a reasonable part of the profit for subsequent payment to the artists from the respective financial year. As we cannot predict economic figures, please understand that this is purely voluntary. There is no claim for payment or any corresponding claim.

In case there is a voluntary payment event, we will notify all performing artists from the relevant year and inform them about the share of profit, the mechanism we intend to allocate the profit to the artists and offer them a payment agreement in addition to this contract. We will make sure that there is a transparent process and a reasonable outcome.
