Google Licences 5.5 Billion Songs For European Google Play Service


Google on Monday announced a licensing deal with a European licensing hub that will offer the internet giant access to millions of songs.

Google striked the licensing deal with Armonia, a pan-European licensing hub for licensing of online services. The deal will offer Google access to the repertoires of SACEM, SGAE, SIAE, UMPI, SONY Latino, PEER Latino and SPA.

The Armonia societies have signed a first agreement with Google on November, 1st, granting access to their repertoires, which include more than 5.5 million works, represented by the signatories within its various services (Google Music Play and Locker, VOD and more), to customers across all of European and for certain repertoires, Eurasiannations, the Middle-East and Arabian peninsula, Africa and the Indian Sub-Continent.

"We're thrilled to have reached an agreement with the Armonia societies," said Sami Valkonen, head of Google's music licensing. "Licenses such as this are important in ensuring that artists and rights-holders are rewarded fairly for their creative endeavours, and digital service providers are able to bring innovative services to market for the benefit of European consumers. Armonia is a welcome development in the on-going reform of pan-territorial licensing in Europe in helping simplify and speed-up the music-licensing process, which is crucial in fostering ongoing rapid innovation by digital music service providers."
