When you are a Teosto member, we supervise the economic rights related to the use of your music.
We grant licenses for performing and reproducing music on your behalf, and gather information on the use of your works. It is our job to see to it that you receive royalties for the use of your works on radio, TV, concerts and other live music events, and for works used as background music.
Via our international network you will also be compensated if your works are performed abroad.
Furthermore, we offer our members expert services and advice on practical matters, such as adaptation licences or publishing.
Through our web service you can manage your membership and music portfolio online.
If you are a Teosto member (music author or publisher), you can apply for ordinary membership in the organization. As an ordinary member, you will be entitled to attend organisation meetings, while also participating in decision-making.
