We have developed significant outreach programs to thousands of industry partners—including retailers, sub-licensees, distributors, aggregators, music supervisors for film and TV, advertising and commercial agencies, sync brokers, monetization brokers, sub-publishers, video game licensees, broadcasters, performance rights organizations, labels and more. We might be able to secure overseas Master Use Licensing deals with various regional distribution companies, and we qualify emerging online and mobile outlets on a daily basis. In addition, our international mobile telecom database is growing every year, for both mobile download and streaming services.

Do I lose ownership of my music?

Nothing shall limit your ownership rights to your products, Masters and intellectual property. You always will retain all ownership rights in your assets.

Is my personal information secure?

Yes, absolutely. SiteLock is our security partner. SiteLock is one of the most highly respected security organizations in North America and protects more than 1,000,000 websites and online business around the globe.

We will never give out, release or sell your personal information.

Will you accept and distribute everything I?

We typically distribute most products. Yet, please keep in mind that we actually listen to all of the music from our label partners. We are very selective, in terms of quality, which means that your music will be distributed by real people… with real ears, hands, minds, hearts and the utmost integrity. Our label partner relations are our most important asset, and we are very protective of those relationships.
