We are inextricably linked with music

AKM stands for authors (A), com­posers (K) and music pub­lish­ers (M). We are a reg­is­tered coop­er­a­tive with lim­it­ed lia­bil­i­ty. Aus­tro mechana is a pri­vate lim­it­ed com­pa­ny and a sub­sidiary of AKM.
AKM and aus­tro mechana are Col­lec­tive Man­age­ment Organ­i­sa­tions accord­ing to the Aus­tri­an law on Col­lec­tive Man­age­ment Organ­i­sa­tions.

Based on the autho­riza­tion grant­ed by the Aus­tri­an Super­vi­so­ry Author­i­ty for Col­lec­tive Man­age­ment Organ­i­sa­tions, AKM admin­is­ters the per­form­ing rights, broad­cast­ing rights and pro­vi­sion rights in musi­cal works with or with­out text from com­posers, authors, their legal suc­ces­sors and music pub­lish­ers in Aus­tria. Aus­tro mechana admin­is­ters the repro­duc­tion and dis­tri­b­u­tion rights (mechan­i­cal rights) in musi­cal works with or with­out text from com­posers, authors, their legal suc­ces­sors and music pub­lish­ers in Aus­tria.
