The STIM organisation
STIM is a Swedish collective management organisation for music creators and publishers.
STIM is a non-profit member organisation tasked with ensuring that its more than 90,000 affiliated rightsholders and music publishers get paid when their music is used. We provide the conditions for creativity and regrowth in the Swedish music industry. It’s why STIM strives to ensure that there are strong copyright laws in place.
On the behalf of its members, STIM administers and licenses performing and mechanical rights to music and lyrics. Through its international network, STIM also manages the rights to a global repertoire of music.
Democracy is important to STIM. Writers, composers and music publishers affiliated to STIM can become full voting members of the Society. This gives you the right to attend and vote at STIM's annual general meeting. Read more about the statutes.
