The members of NCB are the Nordic performing rights societies – Koda in Denmark, STEF in Iceland, STIM in Sweden, Teosto in Finland and TONO in Norway.
NCB owns 50% of the shares in NMP – Network of Music Partners A/S – a joint venture owned by NCB and PRS for Music (the music copyright society in the UK). NMP provides back office services to the music copyright administration industry.
From April 1, 2017, NCB has entered into a back office cooperation agreement with Koda based on which Koda will supply mechanical rights licenses and administrative services to NCB. The agreement with Koda safe-guards the interest of authors, composers and music publishers. Authors, composers, music publishers and foreign collective rights management societies can continue to expect a second-to-none service from NCB also in the coming years.
Koda has the responsibility for the delivery of the services described in the cooperation agreement between Koda and NCB. Koda has of august 2019 appointed Market Director, Camilla Kjær Hejselbæk, to manage the day-to-day business of NCB, cf. Section 9 of the Danish Act on collective management of copyright and related rights.
NCB’s board of directors oversees that the cooperation agreement is complied with by Koda.
