We believe in and support music creators and the value of their works.
The Music community is united in helping to safeguard these values and working to preserve the future of music.
To us the world appears as a giant musical greenhouse, always evolving, filled with music makers and their creations, each possessing their own unique expressive beauty. We believe in the infinite potential of artists, songwriters and musicians. We believe in the value of all musical expression. We believe in the surrounding infrastructure of people that support the growth and development of music and its creators throughout the world. We envision a music space that gives everyone in the Music community a new way to develop, thrive and flourish in a resource-rich, yet safe environment.
From the beginning our vision was to serve the Music community by creating a new namespace where every music maker — in fact anyone who is a part of creating, publishing and delivering music of all genres — would be able to find their home within the virtual community.
In retrospect, it might have seemed easy to predict. Our team has devoted their lives developing, marketing, producing, publishing and nurturing musical talent. We are dedicated music lovers who share a common desire to work with music creators, no matter their place on the planet. That ethos, as some have suggested, was built into our very DNA. As a result, we have been working behind the scenes all around the world since 2008 on a quest to create a premier Internet address — a home for anyone who is immersed in the world of music creation. We know our future will continue to be inspired by the mysteries of music, music making and its creative ecosystem. We believe, like you, that the best way to predict the future is to build it.
The world-wide Music community is anticipating the launch of a new top-level identifier on the Internet and has endorsed and supported our application for .music. The entities shown below represent the people that write, sing, play, perform, publish, record, promote, manufacture, distribute and/or license over 80% of the world's commercial music. They are music educators, record labels, publishers, performance rights societies, distributors, retailers, musical instrument makers, guilds, unions, cultural institutions, advocacy groups and the ecosystem that connects the Music community everywhere on the planet.
