Publishing is one part of the music industry many musicians ignore
Let EPM help you to get on top of your publishing!
We at EPM think that understanding and managing your copyrights, publishing and revenue streams is a very important part of your music career, as these form the basis of your income as an artist or a record label.

EPM’s Rights Management services are especially designed to help you to get on top of these matters and allow you to increase your income by managing and administering your copyrights and phonographic rights.
EPM is not a standard music publisher.While 'classic' publishers only manage and collect royalties on your copyrights into songs (compositions), EPM also manages and collects royalties earned with your sound recordings (or phonographic rights). In this way EPM offers a one-stop-shop for the management of all sorts of copyright, covering both the rights into sound recordings as in musical compositions.
Our rights management service allows you to effectively collect public performance and mechanical royalties paid by Online Stores, Streaming Services, Record Labels, Radio and Television broadcasters for the usage of your music.
Most Online Stores and Streaming Services EPM works with are obliged by law to pay mechanical and public performance royalties for every download they sell, and to pay public performance royalties everytime they stream your music over the Internet. These royalty payments for the usage of your music are being paid and administered by the national collecting societies.
EPM Rights Management helps you to collect these royalties paid by commercial music users on your behalf. EPM, as a digital distributor, has the advantage of excellent relationships with these Online Stores, Streaming Services and through our Radio promotion service with Radio stations, so we know exactly where and when your music is being used in the form of downloads, streams, or Radio plays.
EPM's rights management services are open to all artists and songwriters who create and perform original material and to all independent music labels. We do not charge you a membership fee, we just take a small percentage of the royalties collected on your behalf. And above all, you as the artist get to retain all your copyrights.
Our set up allows us to offer tailormade rights management solutions depending on your preferences and situation.
