FROM CREATION TO COLLECTION
PROTECT YOUR MUSIC RIGHTS
BEWARE OF SCAMMERS
While protecting your rights we maximize your income by actively licensing, claiming, counterclaiming for both masters and compositions, minimizing any unauthorized use of the content. We also work with you to assess existing relationships and new opportunities within the entertainment field.
WORLDWIDE ADMINISTRATION is handled through an experienced network of publishers protecting the songs as well as seeking additional opportunities in each territory. At the same time, we maximize the value of songs by promoting within our own industry network, which includes content producers, film, and TV studios. As with masters, our in-house system helps us claim, collect, and protect more effectively and ensures, whether it be synch rights on YouTube or unclaimed publishing rights on Spotify, the most efficient administration of all income generated from the moment the composition is used commercially.
