SPANRA

SPANRA is Danmark Music Group’s sister company responsible for sync and publishing and neighbouring rights..
Via direct contracts with international collection societies and digital services we collect worldwide royalties from digital streams, downloads, video views, radio plays, cover versions, TV usage and manage digital rights across all platforms.
 

Sync: Synchronization, or “sync” for short, is a music license granted by the holder of the copyright of a particular composition, allowing the licensee to synchronize (“sync”) music with some kind of visual media output (film, television shows, advertisements, video games, accompanying website music, movie trailers, etc.). In order to ”sync” a sound recording you need to clear both the rights to the composition and clear the rights to the actual sound recording.

Publishing: Songwriters earn royalties when their compositions are downloaded, streamed, and used around the world. And it’s the job of a Publishing Administrator to register the songwriters’ compositions around the world, monitor when and where the compositions are used, license compositions for use, collect the royalties generated, and then distribute them to the songwriters. Neighbouring Rights: Neighbouring rights are a form of copyright linked to commercially released recordings. When a record is played on the radio, on TV or performed in public a royalty is due both to the owner of the master recording and the performing artist. Performing artists includes singers, instrumentalists and, if they play on the track, studio producers as well.

Spotify is the most popular streaming service for music in the world and offer various tools for both Artists and labels.

Spotify for Artists lets you customize and edit your Spotify profile. You can change profile picture, edit your biography, list concert dates, pin a playlist, song or album to the top of your profile, view analytics and see on which playlists your music is featured.

Spotify Analytics for labels and distributors is the free tool that gives labels and distributors the data they need from Spotify by providing streaming stats and understand performance across your entire catalog.

If you run a label that has music on Spotify, you can use Spotify Analytics to access a number of features that aren’t available in Spotify for Artists including album-level data, custom date ranges, playlist submission, and CSV export for every chart. In the coming months Spotify will be adding even more features, and we want you to be ready to take advantage.

Spotify recently updated the onboarding process to make it simpler and more secure for you to get access to your catalog in Spotify Analytics. To sign up, you’ll need a Spotify account, your work email address, and if you’re the first person from your organization to request access, the URIs of at least 3 albums or songs that you’ve previously delivered to Spotify.
