Kobalt Neighbouring Rights signs Dave Stewart
Dave Stewart has engaged the services of Kobalt’s previously reported neighbouring rights business to identify and collect any neighbouring right royalties he is due from all of his previous works, including the Eurythmics catalogue.
Kobalt Neighbouring Rights will initially represent the musician in this domain in the US, before taking on the duty worldwide in October. Stewart already utilises Kobalt to manage his publishing rights. Confirming the new deal, Kobalt Founder Willard Ahdritz told CMU: “I’ve had the privilege of knowing Dave for years, and I’m very proud to extend our relationship with him to include another one of the services Kobalt offers its clients”.
Stewart himself added: “It’s great working with a company that is completely transparent and has the artist’s interest at heart. Willard and I have a shared vision”.
