No, Soundreef offers similar services to those offered by national Collective Management Organizations.
In one simple package, Soundreef In-Store administers both publishing rights (copyright and composition rights) and master recording rights (related and neighbouring rights) for background music used by the businesses who subscribe to our service.
Soundreef Live offers a fast, efficient and fair way of getting a music licence for a live event. We pay musicians quickly and fairly while saving live event organisers up to 50% on what they would usually have to pay for a licence from, for example, SIAE, the Italian ex-monopolist.
