Administration & Collection

Our direct relationships with local publishing societies as well as DSPs allow us to ensure that your works are correctly registered and publishing royalties are fairly paid to rights holders. Whether you are a songwriter, a publisher or a CMO, we can administer your works in Greater China increasing your revenue while making sure that your copyrights are protected at all times.

The synch market in China is booming and we are in a pole position to market and place your works to a great variety of domestic partners. Television, advertisement, gaming: you name it, Kanjian works with top-notch agencies, music supervisors and production companies to provide ancillary revenue streams for your catalog.

Covers & Collaborations

Working with a locally established act is vital to breaking through China. Through our Beijing office, we have strong connections with the Chinese pop music elite and we are in a premium position to pitch songs for covers and collaborations. Take advantage of local idols to push your songs to the next step.

How do you make money?

We are able to claim the publishing royalties from DSPs directly, including where we do speak on behalf of the 100% share.

For example, if we are licensed only a 4% of a composition/lyrics, the DSP will pay to us the 4% to Kanjian and the remaining percentage to MCSC or accordingly to any third parties administrating the works.

When do you get paid?

We provide reports once a month and you can withdraw your revenue at any time.

We support independent artists and labels to achieve financial freedom without holding them to ransom with subscription fees and music takedowns.
