STIM is a non-profit organization. The funds that we collect are distributed to our more than 90 000 affiliated music creators and publishers and their colleagues in other countries.
With a music license from STIM, you can play music from all over the world. We distribute money for foreign music played in Sweden to collecting societies and rightholders in other countries.
Perhaps you are already paying for other licenses, to Radiotjänst or SAMI. That is very good, but it doesn't pay the music creators. We represent those who write the music and lyrics, and you need a license from us as well to cover their efforts.
This is how it works
Play the music
You can now play the whole world of music in your business and contribute to that music creator's are paid for their work.
If you have a specific kind of business, like a hotel, a local radio station or if you arange live conserts, you need to report your music usage. You do that on inquiry from us, and you report even if you haven't played any music.
STIM makes an annual deduction of roughly 30 million SEK to promote Swedish music, in the form of scholarships and support of new projects for example.
We give you access to a whole world of music
The music you play says something about of your brand. This may be in your store, restaurant, hotel, or when you arrange a concert. Behind each song, there are one or more creators. We work on the basis of copyright law and our mission is to support music creators and music publishers, but we are also here to ensure that you are able to use the music of your choice in your business.
