Protection against plagiarism and theft?
You or your music publisher is responsible for safeguarding against plagiarism, misrepresentation, theft or use of your music in contexts that could be considered offensive.
Distribution of share splits for a musical work
When a work that has been written by more than one person is registered with STIM, there are a number of different ways the copyright can be split.
Music creators are entitled to compensation when their music is played live. For us to be able to send money to the right authors, we need to know that the show took place, as well as what music was played.
Compensation for live gigs abroad
When your music has been played abroad STIM will often get information about this. However, it may take up to a year and a half to get compensation. But there is a way for you to speed up the process.
STIM cooperates with corresponding organisations in other countries. This means that anyone whose music is played abroad can be remunerated.
Copyright, in Europe also called authors´rights, is designed to give rights owners, exclusive rights to their work and performances. Their economic and moral interests are thus safeguarded.
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 sports and exercise
Music and physical activity belong together. Music creates the right mood and encourages both top-level athletes and people working out to stay in shape to try just a little harder.
Music at the cinema and in film showings
It is hard to imagine a film without music. The value of music in the film simply can not be overstated.
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.
Would you like to start a service that provides downloadable songs? Do you want to create an app that contains music, start a podcast or publish music on your blog? For the composers to be compensated, you need a license from STIM.
Music in restaurants, cafés and bars
Music is a wonderful tool for creating the right mood and atmosphere. Music can help you attract new customers and make them want to come back.
Disco, dancing, karaoke and bar-dj's
Music is an obvious feature at night clubs. Your guests come to the night club to have fun. You might offer karaoke, live performances or musical entertainment from a DJ. Whatever the case – music makes us feel good.
Music during exhibitions, fairs, dance performances, fashion shows and other events
Music enhances our experiences, and is a perfect way to unify any type of event. Make the most of your event by taking advantage of all the benefits afforded by music.
