Joining forces with Manage Ad Music to assemble the Copyright Admin component of our Music Operating System – MAM BMAT

Manage Ad Music – MAM – a company specializing in the collection of music royalties founded by Nan Wilson in 2000, has been acquired by BMAT Music Innovators.

As a result of the acquisition, the new MAM BMAT is now offering a wide array of additional services, including global performance royalty administration for music, music performance monitoring and market analysis reporting.

Regarding the formation of MAM BMAT, Nan Wilson said, “This merger is a game-changer in maximizing performance royalty revenues around the world. By joining forces, we can now meld MAM’s longstanding relationships and expertise with BMAT’s pristine technology.” Adds Pedro Cano, “We are delighted to join forces with MAM. BMAT’s authoritative and comprehensive music usage data is the standard for more than 100 PRO and major industry players. MAM adds the expertise, wisdom and loving care to monetize this data. MAM is a critical addition to the Music OS, bringing not only the performance royalty collection in the TV ads but also a 20-year-plus relationship with composers, music houses, publishers and libraries.”
