LONDON, UK (CelebrityAccess) – Yet another independent music publisher, Peermusic, has parted ways with IMPEL and signed a multi-territory digital licensing deal with ICE.

The news follows recent moves by both Concord Music and Downtown Music Publishing who also signed deals with the pan-European copyright agency.

Under the terms of the new agreement, ICE will provide Peermusic (a 90-year-old independent publisher that currently represents some 300,000 plus songs) with a range of digital licensing and royalty processing services applicable to the pan-European territories.

Nigel Elderton, Peermusic European president and chairman of PRS For Music, one of the partners in the ICE joint venture said: “As the online business evolves, we continue to evaluate our digital strategy and review our service providers around the world to ensure that our songwriters and composers receive the best service and achieve the most competitive rates possible.”

“We chose to partner with ICE directly in Europe as they offer a tailored service with the business intelligence tools necessary to effectively track and police our royalties. ICE has continued to demonstrate that they are at the forefront of the pan-European licensing business having negotiated deals with all of the major digital service providers across Europe and beyond.”
