Registering with societies and licensees around the world, we ensure that your claims are listed in the places that they need to be.
Ultra's team takes advantage of the wide variety of available licensing opportunities: film, video games, and jukebox services are just the beginning to where your music can go.
Ultra prides itself in collecting royalties from all income sources worldwide to maximize return for our clients.
Mechanical Licensing: While most publishers use Harry Fox Agency to issue mechanical licenses, Ultra licenses everything directly with releasing labels. Our team of licensors works to negotiate the best rates and contracts for each song, actively searching for any missing royalties for our clients and writers.
Synchronization Licensing: With a long history of successful synch placements, it is rare that you’ll watch TV without hearing an Ultra song. Our synch team, with their close relationships to production networks and music supervisors, have placed UIMP songs in TV shows, video games (ex. FIFA 2016), films, and even children’s toys.
UIMP’s songs are regulars on The Ellen Degeneres Show, American Idol, The Voice, How To Get Away With Murder, Empire, and Gossip Girl (among others), and film standouts have included Zoolander 2 (2016), My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (2016), Furious 7 (2015), Point Break (2015), Jem and The Holograms (2015), Spy (2015), Focus (2015), Black Mass (2015), The Equalizer (2014), Star Trek Into Darkness (2013), Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted (2012), Pitch Perfect (2012), Taken 2 (2012), This is 40 (2012), Rust & Bone (2012), Step Up: Revolution (2012), Crazy, Stupid, Love(2011) , Happy Feet 2 (2011), Limitless (2011), Piranha 3D (2010), Hancock (2008), Tropic Thunder (2008).
