Currently, GEMA is the only collecting society for music composers in Germany, while GVL is the only society to represent the performing musicians. Members of these two societies cannot license their music themselves, because the societies demand trasfer of all exclusive rights to the complete repertoire of each member.
But what about musicians who want to license their music under Creative Commons licenses? First of all, they cannot become members of the societies. And some of them might not even be interested in a commercial exploitation of their works.
