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. We are autho­rized by our mem­bers to admin­is­ter their rights:

  • 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.
