A STIM license simply allows you to play music legally. STIM charges for the use of music at businesses, clubs, in public places, etc. We then pay the money to the music creators and music publishers who are members of STIM. Our activities are based on copyright law, which states that the music creator is also entitled to payment when their music is used. Read more about STIM’s mission and our activities.
