The GEMATariff package

This R package was developed to get a better understanding of the tariff system of the German collective rights society GEMA . It is intended to be useful as a research tool, and not for any practical application beyond that.

Some of the tariffs are quite complex. Allthough we implemented everything to the best of our abilities, we do not warranty the correctness of these calculations. Also, the tariffs are constantly subject to change, and while you read this, some of these changes might not have been implemented yet.

If you need reliable feed back on these tariffs, you should try the official GEMA online calculator instead.
