International collective management organisation SACEM has been appointed by Warner/Chappell to administer its repertoire with Deezer, Qobuz and YouTube in a multi-territory online mandate.
The agreement will apply to pan-European licensing deals with the three digital platforms on a multi-territory basis.
Jean-Noël Tronc, CEO of SACEM, said: "We are very proud to announce that Warner/Chappell Music is the latest major publisher to entrust us with their repertoire in a multi-territory online licensing deal for several streaming platforms that represent a strategically important and growing market.
“We are a partner of choice for publishers in international online licensing deals because of our deep experience and our innovative industry leading technology. We have been appointed thanks to our strong knowledge and expertise in streaming and because we have invested in providing a highly efficient and completely transparent service.
“This new partnership with Warner/Chappell Music is a vindication of our strategic investment in a future-proof global online copyright management system. We are passionate about using digital innovation to turn the challenge of digital fragmentation of rights into an opportunity to unlock more value for creators and rights-holders.”
SACEM also handles the repertoire of UMPI, Wixen Music and the Canadian society SOCAN, in similar partnerships.
