Previously included exclusively under the AFTRA Sound Recordings code, there are now more than 40 separate SAG-AFTRA agreements with publishers and producers of audiobooks. In recent years, the work of members has intensified with the advent of digital audiobook downloads. SAG-AFTRA negotiated fair contracts covering all kinds of audiobooks. Revenues from the audio recording include private copying fees generated by the U.S. Audio Recording Act (AHRA); Reciprocal private copying agreements with many foreign collectives in countries that also have legislation providing for these royalties, such as Japan, the Netherlands, Hungary, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Germany, Latvia and Estonia, to name a few. The fund also collects record rents from Japan, where sound recordings are rented in the same way as DVDs are rented in the United States. However, the bulk of the royalties are generated by the Digital Performance Royalty Act (DPRA) and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), which the fund withdraws from Sound Exchange on behalf of unspecified performers. These include royalties collected from digital subscription services, webcasting and other digital services. The Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) has entered into a three-year “provisional” contract with the record companies for a succession contract to the National Code of Fair Practice for SAG-AFTRA sound recordings. The new agreement is a renewal of the previous pact, which ended on 31 December 2011.
