What Is ICE Services and What Can It Do For Me?

Expect a faster turnaround from digital royalties in Europe.

ICE Services is a multi-territory collaboration between a British copyright collective (PRS for Music) and collecting societies from Germany (GEMA) and Sweden (STIM). The not-for-profit organization became the world’s first integrated licensing and processing hub in 2015, and now boasts Europe’s largest aggregated music repertoire. 

Thanks to its suite of copyright administration services, ICE also helps us license Digital Service Providers (e.g., Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal) in Europe and claim works used by those platforms. This means you will receive accurate digital royalties faster, with fewer outside fees from local societies. 

You don’t need to do anything to get set up with ICE, either. If you are a Songtrust client and we represent you in Europe, you'll receive its benefits automatically.
