Soundsuit is a B2B music service specifically licensed for commercial use in businesses. This means that Soundsuit pay specific fees to the Copyright Collecting Societies (e.g. ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, SOCAN, Re:Sound) that protect the financial interests of artists and music creators. Therefore Soundsuit is allowed to broadcast the music material of these artists to large audiences of people in businesses.
The fees that Soundsuit pay are logically high to make sure that the artists get a financial compensation proportional to the large audience who listen to their music work. By broadcasting in businesses (and not for private use at home like mainstream music services such as Spotify, Deezer and others), Soundsuit expose the music work of artists to a much larger number of people simultaneously. And artists need to be compensated proportionally.
By reversing high compensation to music creators, Soundsuit is therefore an extremely fair player of the global music industry which respects and supports artists, both financially and artistically.
