Universal Music Publishing And Disney Music Publishing Expand Global Administration Relationship

Universal Music Publishing Group and Disney Music Publishing announced a new agreement today that expands the territories in which UMPG will administer DMP’s catalogs which includes the United Kingdom, Ireland, Europe, Israel, and countries in Africa and the Caribbean.

Effective Jan. 1, 2018, the agreement significantly builds upon the companies’ existing global relationship, since  UMPG currently administers DMP’s publishing catalogs in South East Asia, and many territories in Latin America, Africa, the Middle East and the Caribbean.

“We are thrilled to expand our relationship with UMPG into Europe and beyond. Their creativity and entrepreneurial spirit make for the perfect match for Disney Music Publishing,” said Ken Bunt, President, DMG. 

“Disney is home to one of the most iconic catalogs in history, one that spans cultures, generations and genres,” said Jody Gerson, UMPG CEO and Global Chairman. “We are honored to expand our global collaboration with Disney and we look forward to developing outstanding creative opportunities that build on the company’s outstanding legacy.”

UMPG is a leading global music publisher with 44 offices in 37 countries, and DMP is an umbrella for the 34 individual publishing companies holding worldwide rights to the music catalogs controlled by The Walt Disney Company.
