Solutions As a full-service provider, we offer our customers customised IT services – and thus enable rights’ management that is not only up-to-date, but also forward-looking.

Services We help collecting societies to seize the opportunities opened up by the digital revolution. In this we apply the highest data security standards and work with state-of-the-art technologies – cloud platforms, big data and artificial intelligence.

    Our employees have in-depth experience in process definition and process consulting, specifically for collecting societies. We offer this sector-specific expertise for the following areas:

  • Cloud Strategy

    Newly installed systems are always hosted in the cloud. Our customers benefit from this Platform as a Service (PaaS) approach in several ways since costly hardware investments can be dispensed with while, at the same time, a lot of work is taken off the employees’ hands. Meanwhile, standard functions such as network, proxy and load balancing are available at the push of a button.

  • GAP (GEMA Analytics Platform)

    We run the majority of IT-specific services for our parent company, GEMA – a position that gives us unique insights into relevant systems and data streams. Through our GEMA Analytics Platform we offer analysts the possibility to perform ad hoc analyses on all business-relevant data (incl. master and transaction data).

  • Artificial Intelligence

    We develop and operate AI-based solutions to protect copyrights even more effectively and efficiently. With the help of machine learning and neural networks, our AI services provide support in the following areas:

    • Complaints processing
    • Duplicate recognition for events
    • Music recognition
    • Fraud detection
    • AV product matching

Cases We don't just want to find a solution, but the right one. That's why we seek to dialogue with our clients and rely on agile working methods and DevOps. That can be exhausting. Why do we do it anyway? Because it creates trusting client relationships – and delivers great results.

  • GEMA

    In Germany, GEMA represents the copyrights of more than 70,000 members (composers, lyricists and music publishers) and of more than two million rights’ owners from all over the world. GEMA is one of the largest music creators’ societies for works of music worldwide.

  • ZPÜ

    The Central Organisation for Private Copying Rights is an association of nine German collecting societies that specialises in the assertion of remuneration, information and notification claims against manufacturers, importers and dealers of devices and storage media when audio and audio-visual works are reproduced.


    ARESA GmbH is a wholly owned subsidiary of GEMA, which has been licensing the reproduction rights to BMG Rights Management's Anglo-American repertoire for online and mobile use in the European Economic Area (EEA) and additionally defined countries since July 1, 2012.

  • GVL

    Since 1959, we have represented the interests of performing artists and producers of sound recordings. And we do this out of conviction, because anyone who performs something artistic or creates the economic basis for it must receive money for the use of these performances. We at the Gesellschaft zur Verwertung von Leistungsschutzrechten mbH (GVL) record the use.
