NPREX® is the marketplace for direct performance licensing.

NPREX® is a financial exchange that does what any financial exchange does – it facilitates transactions in a financial contract between buyers and sellers. The financial contract on NPREX® is not a stock or a bond but a standardized music license that conveys from the seller to the buyer the right to perform music. The buyer on NPREX® is a business that performs music in public, including your favorite radio stations, TV networks, digital streaming services and bars and restaurants. The seller of the standardized NPREX® license is a music owner - a music publisher or a record label.

A triumph of math, economics and computer science, NPREX® helps music owners transact directly with music users by automating licensing transactions with algorithms that are under the control of the music owners and music users. A matching algorithm matches the like-minded buyer and seller according to their individual preferences revealed directly to NPREX®. A pricing algorithm that is based on economic theory and implemented with advanced math generates market prices calibrated according to the terms agreed upon by a buyer and seller.
