What does Broma 16 do?

Broma 16 grants licenses for using musical repertoire and collects royalties for authors, producers, performers, labels and publishers.

Find out more about our services and licensing offerings.

From which sources do you collect royalties?

We collect your royalties from various sources:

1) Digital service providers – for streaming, downloads and ringtones, etc

We collect royalties for the use of your songs on digital services – Apple Music, iTunes, YouTube, VK, Google Play Music, Spotify, Deezer, Amazon Music, Facebook/Instagram, to mention a few, with which we have direct contracts.

2) CMO’s (Collective Management Organizations) – for public performance of your master recordings

If your music is played on the radio, TV, in cafes, restaurants and other public places, we register your songs in CMO’s, collect and pay out your royalties.

3) Multimedia production companies – for placing your music in mass media products

We pitch your songs to music supervisors, ad agencies and production studios, to be chosen for placement in film, TV, advertising, video games and other audio-visual productions.

What makes Broma 16 different from other music licensing companies?

There are several benefits of working with us:

1) Royalty collection directly from digital service providers

We license your music directly to major and domestic digital services (Apple Music, iTunes, YouTube, VK, Google Play Music, Spotify, Deezer, Amazon Music, Facebook/Instagram and others), without intermediaries. This allows us to increase royalty collections, reduce service charges and speed up your payments and time to release.

2) Modern technology for repertoire registration, licensing and royalty distribution

You receive at-source information on every transaction related to your songs, regardless of digital service providers or their location. Our platform gives you full and granular transparency and understanding of your rights and the use of your repertoire.

3) Using AI for data analysis and increasing royalty collections

AI allows us to process large volumes of data faster, carry out in-depth analysis, identify and remove errors, making recognition processes almost human-like with a power of a machine – thus increasing volume and precision of royalty collections.

4) Customized approach to each partner

Our experts give you a preliminary assessment of your catalogue and offer mutually beneficial partnership terms. We help you clean and augment your data, provide you with detailed reports on each song and give full clarify on your revenue streams and structure. In the meantime, you always keep 100% of your rights, whether you are an independent author, a label or a publishing company.


How much do you charge for your services?

We don’t take any prepayments for our services. We take a reasonable commission only on the royalties that we collect for you.

Contact us to find out about individual pricing options.

If I already work with a publisher, a label or a society, how can I work with you?
You can give us rights for part of your repertoire or specific music works and/or recordings, for the territories, use types and periods which have not been granted to other entities.
Do you market / promote authors’ repertoire?

While Broma 16 does not directly promote authors or their repertoire, we may suggest partners and services that will be happy to help you with this on individual terms.

What will influence my income if I work with you?

Your income primarily depends on the popularity of your repertoire and the quality of data which you provide to us.

Our duties depend on the type of services we provide – particularly for MUSIC COMPOSITIONS or SOUND RECORDINGS.

If we collect your royalties for use of MUSIC COMPOSITIONS, our duties are:

- We are responsible for identification quality of use of your repertoire; timely claims, backing claims, unpaid, mispaid and underpaid royalties, recognition, collection and payments.

- We audit your documents and put your metadata in order.

- We are responsible for recognizing disputing claims, notifying you and helping you resolve them.

Duties on your side:

- You are responsible for timely notification about your repertoire and for quality of metadata you provide. Low quality of metadata or delayed notifications may significantly reduce the volume of your royalties.

- You are responsible for marketing and promotion of your repertoire. The volume of your royalties will directly depend on the popularity of your songs.

If we collect your royalties for use of SOUND RECORDINGS, our duties are:

- We are responsible for preparation and timely delivery of your releases to digital service providers.

- We audit your documents and put your metadata in order.

- We are responsible for recognizing disputes, notifying you and helping you resolve them.  

On your side:

- You are responsible for in-advance submission of your release data, files and its compliance with DSP requirements. This will directly affect how quickly your releases will be delivered to digital services.

- You are responsible for marketing and promotion of your repertoire. The volume of your royalties will directly depend on the popularity of your songs. 

Do you provide copyright protection?
We protect your copyright from illegal usage of your songs on digital platforms.
What type of statistics do you provide, and how often?

We gather detailed statistics from all the sources where we recognize the use of your songs, including digital services and radio. In our reports you can see the following:

- Sources (digital services, mobile operators, radio, TV, cafés, restaurants and other public places) 

- Territories (in which countries your songs were played)

- Type of use (streaming, downloads, public performance, etc)

- Revenue splits (volumes of royalties split by different sources, territories, use types, etc)

We provide statistics reports once per quarter.

How often do you provide reports?
We provide statistics reports once per quarter. Learn more about our reports here.
Do you work with authors, musicians, producers?
Yes, we welcome authors, musicians and producers to join our services.
Do you work with international CMO’s? In which countries?

Yes. We work with most of the Collective Management Organizations around the world, including

PRS For Music (UK), STIM (Sweden), ASCAP (USA), UBC (Brazil), RAO (Russia) and many more.

Are you able to register me as an author in international CMO’s?

Yes. We can handle your registration in CMO on your behalf. We will inform you about the conditions individually.

Contact us to learn more about this service.

Can you back-claim my royalties?
Yes. We can back-claim your royalties from digital service providers and CMO’s – wherever such type of collection is possible. 
Are you able to collect royalties for neighboring rights in international territories?
Yes. In international territories we collect royalties for public performance of sound recordings on the radio, TV and in public places – for both producers and performers. We register your repertoire in local CMO’s.
