Music especially composed for a film, TV show, radio show or commercials is known as commissioned music, and is generally treated by STIM in the same way as other compositions.
Music in radio, tv and films
Here we have gathered information related to the use of music in radio, television, film and advertising.
Music in commercial radio
Commercial radio stations need to have STIM-licence to play music. The terms and conditions of the agreement and rates have been negotiated between STIM and the commercial radio industry.
Remuneration from abroad
When STIM's catalogue is performed outside of Sweden, STIM receives royalties for and details of the works performed. When music from other countries is performed in Sweden, STIM sends royalties to collecting societies in those countries.
