Soundsuit signed agreements with and reverses fees to the 2 official institutions which represent and protect the music industry in Germany:

The Gesellschaft für musikalische Aufführungs- und mechanische Vervielfältigungsrechte (GEMA) is a state-authorized collecting society and performance rights organization. GEMA represents the usage rights stemming from authors' rights (e.g., mechanical licensing, broadcast licensing, synchronization licensing) for the musical works of those composers, lyricists, and publishers who are members in the organization. It is the only such institution in Germany.

The Bundesverband Musikindustrie (BVMI) represents the music industry in Germany. The association represents the interests of nearly 280 labels and music industry related enterprises, which comprise the 90% of the music industry. BVMI is a member of International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI), which consists of music associations of 70 countries.

Soundsuit covers all the legal issues related to playing music in public places like restaurant, hotels, stores, salons, etc. Soundsuit pays very specific fees to GEMA and BVMI that cover the rights for broadcasting music, that will be used in public places.

As a business owner, if you use Soundsuit, you then comply with the law. I f you use other solutions - such as MP3 playlists, commercial CDs, or commercial/B2C online music services (e.g. Spotify, Deezer, or Simfy), you do not comply with the German law. These solutions are only and strictly licensed to broadcast music for private use (e.g. a person at home with his friends or family), but in any case for public use (e.g. in a café, spa or boutique or gallery).

This is why Soundsuit is a fully professional online music service specifically dedicated to businesses. Soundsuit fully complies with the German law, which is one of the most demanding one in the world.

Yes, you do need to pay GEMA fees for your business if you use Soundsuit.

GEMA charges establishments like cafés, restaurants or stores to allow them to play music at Point-of-Sale. Whatever the source of music they play from. The fee is proportional to the surface of the establishment itself. There is no way to escape this fee, whatever the professional music service the establishment uses. Paying the GEMA fee for their establishment, business owners comply 50% with the German law.
Learn more about it (https://www.gema.de/musiknutzer/lizenzieren/meine-lizenz/betrieb-mithintergrundmusik.html).

To comply 100% with the law, you as a business owner needs to also use a professional music service, that complies itself with the broadcasting of music in public places. Soundsuit is the first and only online professional music service for businesses to allow you complying 100% with the law.

Soundsuit is a professional service for businesses. It does not target the consumer market.

Solution like Soundsuit is fully legal for businesses to play music at point-of-sale.

On the contrary other solutions like iTunes, CDs, MP3 collection, Spotify, Deezer or Simfy are illegal at point-of-sale. This is because these solutions use music that is licensed only for private broadcast but not for public broadcast (please refer to “mechanical rights” issues).

Soundsuit is an intelligent music service dedicated to professionals. Because business owners are busy at work, they need a music service at point-of-sales that does all the work for them. This is why Soundsuit was developed. Now with the minimum of inputs or interactions, business owners benefits from a great soundtrack for their store, and this all day long.

How? Soundsuit continuously computes the right song, for the right time of the day, matching the business profile that is defined by the user. Soundsuit also learns from any interactions with the player. Day after day, Soundsuit then delivers a very personal soundtrack.

Soundsuit requires very little interactions with the user and offers a real lean back experience. The intelligence of Soundsuit makes it autonomous in providing the right music for a given store, at each specific time of the day. Like a private in-store DJ, but without the DJ.

Soundsuit looks great on tablets, laptops, desktops, and connected TVs (e.g. Samsung smart TV). For an optimal user experience we do not recommend to use Soundsuit on a smartphone or an iPod touch.
