Are you a composer, lyricist, arranger or music publisher? Then STIM is for you.
This is STIM
STIM is a Swedish collective management organization for music creators and publishers. On their behalf, STIM administers and licenses performing and mechanical rights to music and lyrics.
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.
How payments are calculated
STIM makes royalty payments four times a year - in March, June, September and December.
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.
Payment to a company or an organization
If you like you can have your STIM payments go to a company or an organization.
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.
