Sony/ATV Music Publishing Germany and digital media company Divimove have formed a worldwide publishing joint venture.
The new company, Divimove Music Publishing, will focus on exploiting rights and licenses, as well as providing composition and production support.
Divimove was launched in 2012 and delivers 360° services to artists who emerged from “within the online video universe,” through its own ad agency and artist management unit.
The company currently works with 1,750 online video creators in Germany, Spain, the Netherlands, Italy, France and Poland. The entire talent-network reaches 1,4 billion views a month and has 110 million subscribers.
“We are very pleased about the partnership with Sony/ATV Publishing Germany. The publishing company forms the foundation for our visions and plans of professional artist management“, said Brian Ruhe, co-founder and CEO of Divimove.
Added Michael Brycz, VP artist management Unit at Divimove: “I am convinced that we’ll enable big things internationally for our artists together with our partner Sony/ATV. The foundation of the publishing entity underlines our high quality demands for the development of sustainable careers for the rock stars of the new generation.”
Said Sony/ATV Germany managing director Patrick Strauch: “In a constantly changing media industry it’s not sufficient anymore to guarantee our authors access to TV, radio, sync and labels. Through collaboration with DIVIMOVE we can offer our publishing partners an additional and excellent access to online opportunities. We are really happy to be further shaping the future of music distribution and value generation together with DIVIMOVE.”
