Keeping your rights on track

It is not uncommon for artists to have a somewhat troubled relationship with the business side of music. They will agree it is an inevitable aspect of their work, but it brings them little joy as they go through the motions of having to fill in forms, spending time in sorting their rights and checking their royalty statements.

Recognize yourself?

Now this is our cue to come forward. Believe it or not, we like doing administration, it gives us energy to sort things out for others. That’s why we haven’t become artists ourselves. And we can’t wait to help you out so that you can go off and write or record that beautiful song.

If you keep doing what you love we will do the same and you will love us for it.

About Zanoise

“First and foremost we decided to start this company to help artists with their neighboring rights collections. We like to think that we treat rights in the same manner as an artist treats its instrument, with love, care and attention. Focusing where it matters and always keen on limiting the time you have to spend on administrative chores."

“Too often we still find that insufficient knowledge of the nuts and bolts of neighboring rights results in uncollected royalties for artists. This is a waste and can easily be fixed by teaming up with the right partner. We are therefore offering our smart collections service whereby together with the client we design the best collection set-up.”

What are neighboring rights?

To get one thing clear: Neighboring rights are not copyrights, but it is a related right hence the term “neighboring”. In a nutshell it is the right of anyone who performed on a recording to receive payment when it is broadcast, played in public or streamed.

How to collect?

Many countries have neighboring rights societies. On the basis of their arrangements they represent each other’s artists in their country. So in principle, an artist would only need to sign up with one collecting society, and that society would collect the artist’s right worldwide. A great concept in itself, but unfortunately it doesn’t work that well in practice. Because of flaws and inefficiencies within the inter-society network artists often fail to collect what is due to them. Zanoise can provide a specialized service without hassle to insure performing artists receive the neighboring rights royalties due to them across the globe.


Our services

What can we do for you?

  • We will make you a member directly with the relevant neighboring rights societies. In fact we create your own collection network which you can use for life.
  • We will take care of all the red tape in order to make this happen.
  • We ensure smooth registration of your tracks and follow-up with the societies.
  • We work on a no cure, no pay basis. No hidden costs.


How do we work?

  • 1. Investigation and preparation

    By getting a solid understanding of your repertoire, your global footprint as an artist and your needs in detail and taking local rules and qualification criteria into account we will make a collection structure specific to your needs.
  • 2. Doing the paperwork

    Societies can be quite bureaucratic and often multiple application forms are required to make someone a member. This can be quite daunting and off-putting for someone not used to this. But not to worry as we can deal with most of them on your behalf and we will keep your involvement to the bare minimum.
  • 3. Administering your rights

    Correct info on your repertoire is key and vital to get the royalties you are entitled to. We make it our prime focus to check all your track data and where necessary make corrections
  • 4. Checking your collections

    Even with the correct set of data it does not mean that royalty distributions made by societies are without error. We make sure to check every incoming distribution on your behalf.
