- NexTone Inc.
Chosen by rights holders, trusted by users
Established in 2000 upon the enforcement of the Japanese copyright management law and re-established in February 2016 as a joint venture between e-License Inc. and Japan Rights Clearance Inc., NexTone continues to strive towards providing solutions for rights holders through the offering of flexible copyright management and licensing, transparent operations and processing, and equitable royalty distribution. Optimizing the combined knowledge and experience of both companies, we aim to open new possibilities for rights holders by exploring alternative solutions in the face of a dynamically changing landscape, and establishing NexTone as a copyright management organization that is “chosen by rights holders and trusted by users”.
Utilizing the speed and flexible business structure of private-sector companies, we are setting up new management rules adapted to the era we live in, while also ascertaining rights holders’ needs and market trends. In addition, we are making more opportunities to promote works through flexible operations that respond to circumstances.
We have developed a digital distribution business, marketing & promotion business, music publisher business-agency service, and system development business, offering a wide variety of support for all parties involved in the music business, including music publishers, artists and management.
We value transparency. As such, we disclose to rights holders detailed data on when, where, how and by whom their works were used. We make users, services, volumes, and royalties clear to see, so their associated data can also be used for marketing purposes.
We are the industry’s leading copyright agent. We use our highly professional knowledge and expertise accumulated mainly through our copyright management business, going beyond the bounds of management services and offering total support to all parties in the music business.
