Each and every piece of music we listen to every day, are composed and written by someone – and often the result of long, hard work.
Koda’s main purpose is to ensure that composers and songwriters gets the payment they are entitled to, when their music is performed and played publicly.
Access to the entire world
Koda does so by making licensing agreements with everyone, who uses and offers music as part of their business – that includes TV and radio, streaming services, cafés and restaurants, as well as shops, music festivals and fitness centers.
Every time a member of Koda creates a piece of music, Koda handles their rights, thus ensures that the payment for the public performance of the music, is sent to the people who have created the music – at home and abroad.
An agreement with Koda secures the right to use music from all over the world.
Nearly every country in the world has a Koda-like organization that registers the use of music in their own territory, in order to pay creators every time, no matter where the music is played.
In that way, Koda is a part of an essential musical eco-system.
Music has value, and creates value
In the end, the payment for the music we listen to today is a necessity for the creation of new music tomorrow.
Koda is a non-profit collective rights management society that administers Danish and international copyrights for music creators and publishers, when their music is performed in public.
Koda represents approximately 45,000 Danish composers, songwriters and music publishers. Through reciprocal contracts with rights societies in more than 180 countries, we offer the entire world repertoire of music in one single agreement.
