SACEM, the leading international collective management organization, has agreed a new partnership with US independent music publisher PEN Music Group, in a multi-territory mandate for digital licensing for one of its most significant catalogues.

SACEM will manage the collection and distribution of royalties for the online repertoire of the ‘Mother’s Finest Songs’ catalogue, recently acquired by Mothership Music Publishing and administered worldwide by PEN. The catalogue of over 350 songs, all co-written by Ivor Novello Award winner Pam Sheyne, includes hits such as Genie in a Bottle originally released by Christina Aguilera.

This new agreement reinforces SACEM’s representation of major American players in Europe, and further afield, for their digital rights, following its mandates with UMPI, Wixen Music, Warner/Chappell, Canadian PRO SOCAN and IMPEL.

Increasing numbers of independent publishers have been choosing SACEM’s expertise in digital licensing and technology to licence their online rights on a multi-territorial basis.
