We're here for the music. We help music creators get paid for their work and give music customers easy ways to legally play and copy what they like. Royalties keep the music coming and ensure the industry’s future.  And that’s what we all want to hear.

Find out about copyright

The Australian Copyright Act gives songwriters and composers the right to control how their music is used. So whenever music is played in public, the songwriter or composer who wrote it might be entitled to royalties. This is where we can help you.
