BMG RIGHTS MANAGEMENT/BMG GLOBAL
BMG is a new kind of music company. Our mission is clear; to help artists and songwriters make the very most of their songs and recordings in the digital age.
That’s why we offer the best creative support, provide the best access to platforms and work hard to maximize the value of each and every copyright, ensuring all our artists receive all payments promptly and accurately.
We are not a technology company – though we use the best technology. We are not just a music publisher or a record label – although we offer both services.
And as a new music company we know that songwriters and artists don’t work for us – we work for them. It’s a knowledge as clear as our commitment; to make BMG the best international music company – both for songwriters, artists and those who want to use their music.
BMG. The New Music Company
Phonofile (since 1999) is a digital pioneer, and the biggest of its kind in the leading Nordic markets. We strive to give independent labels and their artists an overview and knowledge in the constantly changing world of digital music. From offices in Oslo, Stockholm, Gothenburg, Copenhagen and London we distribute music from our innovative and ambitious labels to the whole world. We believe in transparency and fair compensation combined with great knowledge of the new world of digital marketing and communication, and this approach we are constantly developing into features for implementation into our tech system.
We are passionate about music, artists and labels. Since 2003 our focus has been to create fair and innovative music-driven success stories for independent labels and licensing partners. With offices in the UK, USA, France and Germany we aim to provide successful marketing solutions for our products through daily, dedicated work. Transparency and innovation are not just buzzwords but some of the main pillars finetunes as a company is built on.
SendR – through its affiliate companies – is a digital distributor and license exploitation enabler. SendR currently enables the non-physical exploitation of more than a million media assets (audio- and video-tracks) with about 450 licensees (including Apple iTunes, Amazon, GooglePlay, Spotify, YouTube etc.). The services offered by its affiliate companies cover the entire value chain for the digital media (esp. audio and video) contents. Thereby its affiliate companies are both provider and supplier for artists, record labels, licensed digital services providers and private consumers.
Sony-owned distributor The Orchard has bolstered its operation in Europe with the full acquisition of two rivals: Germany’s finetunes and Norway’s Phonofile.
The move effectively means Sony has acquired four independent European distributors in little over a year: the company swooped for both Essential Music & Marketing (UK) and Century Media (DE) in 2016 for a combined price of just under £16m ($21m).
Labels distributed by finetunes and Phonofile will gain access to The Orchard’s services in over 25 territories worldwide.
Those services include physical sales and distribution, global digital marketing, playlist promotion, interactive marketing, digital advertising, synch licensing, video services, performance/neighboring rights collections, and artist royalty processing and more.
