ICE Services, a new pan-European music licensing and royalty processing venture, has signed a multi-territory agreement with streaming platform Deezer.
The licence covers PRS for Music repertoire, plus that of MCPS, IMPEL, German collecting society GEMA and Swedish society STIM. Previously, this repertoire was covered by three separate agreements with the streaming platform.
The agreement covers Deezer’s ad-supported, subscription and third party bundled services across Europe, including partnerships with major mobile phone networks, speaker manufacturers and car manufacturers.
ICE Services was founded with investment from PRS for Music, GEMA and STIM, and now represents more than 250,000 songwriters, composers and publishers across Europe.
It processes online music usages using a single matching engine attached to the most comprehensive copyright database on the continent and has terms agreed with over 35 music services.
