IMPEL expands to Latin America

Deal with LatinAutor will allow IMPEL to license and collect across Argentina, Colombia, Uruguay and more

London, 30th March 2020 IMPEL has expanded its services to Latin America after signing a licensing and administration agreement with LatinAutor.

LatinAutor (also known as One Stop Shop) is a non-profit organisation established in Uruguay as a federation of Latin American collective management societies.

The organisation represents the following territories: Argentina (SADAIC), Bolivia (SOBODAYCOM), Chile (SCD), Colombia (SAYCO), Ecuador (SAYCE), Paraguay (APA), Peru (APDAYC), Uruguay (AGADU), Venezuela (SACVEN), Honduras (AACIMH), Costa Rica (ACAM), El Salvador (SACIM), Guatemala (AEI), Panama (SPAC) and Dominican Republic (SGACEDOM).

The agreement will see IMPEL able to offer digital licensing and administration services to its independent publisher members, via LatinAutor, for all of the above territories.

IMPEL CEO Sarah Williams said: “This is great news for our members. The IFPI Global Report for 2019 states that, for the fourth year in a row, Latin America has experienced the largest regional growth, with streaming up 39.3%.  We want to be sure that, in partnership with LatinAutor, our members can benefit from that growth. IMPEL’s goal in Latin America is to learn, build relationships and maximise benefits for independent publishers, and this is another step forward in our strategy to provide global licensing opportunities.”

It is 100% owned and controlled by its members, which include respected independent publishers such as Bucks Music Group, Beggars Music, Reservoir Music, Kassner Music, CTM, ABKCO, Truelove Music, Faber Music and Mute Song.
