Music would not exist without the work of performers and producers.
Through responsible use of music, you ensure that it can continue to delight, create experiences and contribute to well-being.

Gramex also sells licences for international use and collects remunerations from abroad. Licences to songs recorded in the countries listed on the map are available for purchase from Gramex. We collect remunerations for Finnish performers and producers from these countries.
If you need licences for television broadcasting and streaming, feel free to browse our selection of songs directly in our phonogram database. For domestic use, our database contains 1.4 million songs from Finland and abroad.
As a copyright society, Gramex does not decide what type of music use requires a licence. This is governed by law. We take care of selling licences and paying out remunerations within these parameters. Transparency and responsibility are fundamental to our operations. See our rules, our annual review, our statutory transparency report and other governance information.
Please note that…
For some purposes, Gramex’s clients prefer to take care of licensing themselves. These situations include using music in advertising or streaming platforms, such as Spotify or YouTube. For these needs, you can obtain licences from the producer of the phonogram, i.e. the record label.
You also need a licence from Teosto for any use of music.
