Keywords:Copyright, Song and Music, Digital Music Services, Collective Management Institutions
Songs and music are one of the works protected by Law No.28 of 2014 concerning Copyright. Digitalization makes it easier for people to enjoy songs anywhere using digital music services. Copyright and Related Rights holders are entitled to economic rights in the form of royalties. UUHC requires the establishment of a Collective Management Institute (LMK) to help creators, copyright holders, or related rights owners get royalties for their work.
The problem raised in this study is how the duties and authorities of LMK in managing royalties for songs and music that are loaded in digital music services?
This research uses a normative juridical approach, secondary data types, data collection techniques using literature study with data analysis techniques that are qualitative.
LMK has the duty and authority to manage the economic rights of creators in the form of collecting and distributing royalties. The absence of regulations and tariffs means that the royalties that are obtained by the creators are still relatively small considering that the calculation of royalties is determined by the number of streams made by the user.
It is hoped that LMKN will improve the existing music database in Indonesia, then determine the appropriate rate for a royalty from songs played on digital music services, as is done by the United States.
