Today sees the launch of the newly redesigned website – a simple information resource for anyone looking to find out more about legitimate digital music services across the world. The new version of Pro-music, which is backed by partners across the global music sector, gives precise and up-to-date information about the world’s 500+ legal music sites.  To keep pace with the growing choice of models available to music fans, the site now breaks down all the services by type (download, subscription, and ad-supported services),  as well as by territories across the globe.

Pro-music is created by IFPI in partnership with a coalition of global music industry partners representing major and independent record companies, performers, managers, publishers, retailers and musicians’ unions. 

The site has two main features: 

  • A comprehensive directory of links to licensed music services, listed by type of service and by country
  • An information portal with simple guidance about copyright law, an online guide on how to access music safely and legally (available in nine languages), and links to useful educational resources and reports about the industry is designed to help music consumers find licensed sites and learn about digital music. It can also be a useful aid for other kinds of users, such as journalists, researchers and students.  The site is backed by seven organisations, from across the music industry, detailed in the “About us” section of the site: IFPI, FIM, GERA, GIART, ICMP, IMMF and IMPALA.

Pro-music is a great illustration of the rapidly-expanding choices available to consumers in today’s digital music world.  We hope that you will try out the newly-redesigned site and find it useful, easy to understand and easy to use.
