    Goals / Remit

    Teosto manages the copyrights of music authors and promotes Finnish creative music. We make sure that our rightsholder members – i.e. composers, lyricists and music publishers – receive royalties when their music is used.

    We represent nearly 38,000 Finnish and around three million foreign composers, lyricists, arrangers and music publishers. Teosto has around 30,000 customers who use music: radio and TV companies, event producers, restaurants and other businesses and organisations.

    Teosto's vision is: We increase the cultural and commercial importance of music. Our goal is to ensure that Finland offers good conditions for working in the the creative industries and using music professionally.
