What is IAO?

IAO is the umbrella association for national organisations representing the rights and interests of Featured Artists in the Music Industry.

Our principal interests are transparency, the protection of intellectual property and a fair reflection of the value an artist’s work generates.

IAO is a not-for-profit organisation based in Paris that was officially founded in 2015 by its six founder-members: FAC (UK), GAM (France), CoArtis (Spain), Domus (Germany), Gramart (Norway) and FACIR (Belgium). The organisation is in the process of expanding its membership to welcome artist organisations from more countries across Europe and beyond.
