Welcome to the federation of music authors and publishers

The FEMU (Federation Music Authors and Publishers) is a collective management organization for copyright. The FEMU collects fees for the reproduction and publication of sheet music and lyrics and distributes these fees among the rightsholders. It was established in 2016 by the Association of Music Traders and Publishers (VMN) and  Dutch Music Publishers Association (NMUV) in the Netherlands.

As most of our clients are Dutch, so are a majority of our documents and licenses. If anything is unclear or if you have any questions regarding these licenses (e.g. the need for an explanation in English), please contact us.
