Your rights as a music creator are split in two parts - economic rights and moral rights. When you join us, we will help you protect your economic rights.
We make sure that you get paid for your effort when your music is played in public, in Sweden and the rest of the world.
It is hard to stand up for your rights by yourself. Toghether with more than 85 000 other rights holders, we are strong.
The number of STIM affiliated songwriters who receive more than SEK 100 000 in foreign revenues is increasing. In 2014 it was 243.
We stand up for your rights
You as an individual music creator or your music publisher are/is entitled to payment when your music is played in public in Sweden and the rest of the world. You are also entitled to receive payment when the music is released on albums, streamed online, or used as part of a film soundtrack. At STIM we work on the basis of copyright law and uphold your rights as a music creator. We are a non-profit organization working to ensure that music creators and music publishers receive payment for their work. This is why all music publishers and anyone who has created or written music that has been released commercially should join STIM. This also applies if you have signed a contract with a music publisher, even if your music is not yet available to the public.
