MUMBAI: Lionsgate has signed an agreement with Fintage Music to handle all international music sub-publishing for current and upcoming Lionsgate music rights. The announcement was made by Fintage Music’s Bruce Lampcov and Niels Teves and Lionsgate president of music and publishing Jay Faires.
The deal includes such Lionsgate films as Akeelah And The Bee, Employee Of The Month, and the upcoming release Bug, in addition to Lionsgate television series such as Weeds and Wildfire.
“Having an organization with global reach like Fintage Music, which combines 20 years of expertise in both film and music rights collection, was very important to us. They provide a secure and reliable service and have the flexibility to accommodate all of our needs,” said Faires.
