Independent publisher Mummy Dust Music Inc has joined IMPEL.
Mummy Dust Music is the publishing entity of Linus Entertainment, a family of leading Canadian independent record labels.

Rob Brown, Mummy Dust manager, music, publishing, licensing and performance, said: “IMPEL has proven their deep commitment to independent music publishers. By streamlining disparate work registration processes through a series of strategic global partnerships, IMPEL has become the long sought after one-stop shop for global mechanical and performance royalty collection. Their top-level expertise of the nuances of the global publishing business is a unique value add that will undoubtedly prove to be vital to the dynamic global strategies of indies across the world.
