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.
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.
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.
Using music is beneficial
The days of radio domination are over. Most businesses today use music in a more deliberate manner. No matter if you have a shop or a clinic, considering your choice of music will serve you well.
More about music reporting
To receive the royalties you are entitled to, you must register all public performances and concerts with STIM, so make sure you've made a note of what songs were played at each performance.
Report live shows
Creators are entitled to royalties when their music is played live. STIM needs to be informed of which music has been played in order to forward royalties to the right author.
All of the works in STIM's repertoire are assigned a grade from A to E. The grading influences the size of the payment per work and performance.
This type of royalty includes remuneration for CDs, DVDs, downloads, etc. They are often called "mechanical royalties".
