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 efforts when your music is streamed, listened to or broadcasted, in Sweden and all around of the world.
It's hard to stand up for your rights all by yourself. You are not alone though, within Stim there are more than 90 000 other rights holders backing you up.

We stand up for your rights
Every individual music creator, or their music publisher, is entitled to payment when their music is played in public in Sweden and the rest of the world. You are also entitled to payment when the music is released on albums, streamed online, or used as part of a soundtrack. With our feet firmly rooted in copyright law we pledge to uphold and defend your rights as a music creator. We are a non-profit organization working to ensure that music creators and music publishers are paid for their work, and 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 to those who have signed a contract with a music publisher, but not yet made their work available to the public.
