What we offer

We take care of your royalties

You com­pose and/or write songs, you arrange or edit musi­cal works and you want to earn mon­ey (roy­al­ties) when your work is per­formed, broad­cast­ed, phys­i­cal­ly sold, streamed, etc?

You are founder of a music pub­lish­ing house and want to earn mon­ey (roy­al­ties) for the use of the musi­cal works you publish? 

Then AKM and aus­tro mechana are the right part­ner for you — we look after your royalties.

More than 27,000 com­posers, song­writ­ers and music pub­lish­ers trust in AKM and aus­tro mechana when it comes to the admin­is­tra­tion of their musi­cal rights. We act as trustee and we are not prof­it oriented.

We admin­is­ter the exploita­tion rights of our mem­bers not only in Aus­tria but almost all over the world through rec­i­p­ro­cal agree­ments with for­eign sis­ter societies.

We offer a high lev­el of ser­vice to our customers.

Besides our main pur­pose, the licens­ing and set­tle­ment of roy­al­ties, we ful­fil social and cul­tur­al tasks in favour of our mem­bers. We pro­vide social grants to our mem­bers accord­ing to our guide­lines and sup­port Aus­tri­an musi­cal creations.
