global reach

worldwide contacts

multilingual staff & consultants

covering all royalty producing territories around the world

With over 35 memberships to collecting societies around the world, we have access to those databases and get paid directly. In the areas where direct membership is not available, we have trusted sub-publishers who have been working with us for years.

Our multicultural staff and consultants are fluent in English, Spanish, Italian, German and French, making it easy for us to connect with people all over the world, resolve issues and increase opportunities.  

competitive pricing

  • Direct memberships in over 35 collection societies
  • Low operational costs

Direct society membership has three major benefits for you: one, cutting out the middle man allows for fewer commissions and more money collected; two, payments are received 1-2 quarters faster; three, we have access to society databases and regularly perform audits to ensure correct song registration (incorrect registration means royalties are not distributed). 

In keeping our overhead low those savings are passed on to you.
