ICE is the result of a big vision for the industry that harnesses years of combined experience in the multi-territory music market.

 We are a joint venture between PRS, STIM and GEMA and actively encourage collaboration between other CMOs, music publishers and digital service providers to ensure composers and songwriters are compensated accurately and fairly for the use of their works.

 We’re based in the UK, Germany and Sweden.

 What makes ICE unique?

 Our aggregated music repertoire is the largest in Europe. We offer a flexible suite of services including copyright administration, multi-territory online licensing and processing.

 Any profits ICE generates flow fully back into customer value, e.g. via investments in new technology, improving the underlying pricing model and further improving the delivery of cost-effective and streamlined quality services that ensure rightsholders retain and increase royalties.

We exist to provide the best value possible to our rightsholders and collaborate with all our customers to help create a better future for the music industry

 History in brief

 With years of experience as ICE and decades more through our parent companies, our collective industry knowledge has enabled us to develop initiatives that not only benefit our own customers, but the wider industry. We are dedicated in providing the best service and increasing value to rightsholders and their members.

   2010 Following extensive development based on an initiative by PRS and STIM, their joint Copyright database launched – ICE was born.

   2012 GEMA joined the joint venture to help develop our vision.

   2015 Our integrated processing hub, including online licensing, launched.

   2018 We continue to work with our shareholders and customers on various initiatives to further increase value back to rightsholders.

   2019 ICE passes €1bn in online royalties distributed to rightsholders.

   2020 the market-first solution ‘Licensr’ is launched, simplifying multi-territory music licensing for start-up services.

   2021 ICE passes €2bn in royalty distributions. ICE’s unique 2-stage invoicing has now benefited more than 295,000 writers and more than 31,000 publishers, reducing market residuals by over €70m.

   2022 €3bn in royalty distributions is passed, from 239 territories.

   2023 ICE’s Copyright database exceeds 50 million musical works, offering an unparalleled authoritative source.
