    What are copyright societies?

    Copyright societies manage copyrights and grant licences on behalf of the rightsholders they represent. Gramex, for example, was founded by music performers and phonogram producers. Through copyright societies, music users can conveniently obtain the licences they need from one place without having to agree on phonogram use separately with each rightsholder. Finnish copyright societies include Gramex, Teosto, Kopiosto, Sanasto and Kuvasto.
