SHORT CUTS

Teosto is a non-profit organisation founded in 1928 by composers and music publishers, to administer and protect their rights. At Teosto, decision-making power lies with ordinary members – that is, music authors.

We act as a link between two customer groups, music authors on the one hand and companies and communities that use music on the other. We make life easier for users of music by providing music licences in a centralised manner at Teosto, eliminating the need to make individual agreements with each music author.
