The Bulgarian National Radio does not accept the proposal of the society of composers, lyricists and music publishers for collective management of copyright Musicautor and is to initiate a public discussion on the amount that should be paid for copyright. BNR does not accept Musicautor’s demands, but remains open for further negotiations. Musicautor terminated unilaterally the contract with the Bulgarian National Radio on January 1, 2017, because the BNR rejected Musicauthor’s request for a drastic increase of the money paid for copyrights. That is why the BNR has been unable to play contemporary music since the beginning of the year.
