The world of music rights can be fairly complex, particularly in the Middle East, where collecting societies can be few and far between making it difficult to license rights in a simple, efficient manner for a new service. PopArabia provides a range of consultancy services to service providers and rights holders that are keen to develop a foothold in the Arab world.
This can range from creative consultancy - acting as music supervisors on film projects to rights management advice where we work closely with global stakeholders, collecting societies or industry players as may be needed.
The myriad of issues facing digital distribution requires not just practical knowledge, but very specific and up to date fluency in the issues faced within the industry. Some of the world’s leading services, music users and rights holders have benefitted from our counsel over a wide variety of issues related to licensing music rights and content acquisition in the Arab world.
As music supervisors we have worked on numerous advertising campaigns and film projects, including UAE feature film, 'City Of Life', 'From A to B', 'Rattle The Cage' and 'As One' among others; working both creatively at placing music in the film with the film's director - and on the negotiation and procurement of music licenses from the relevant rights holders.
