ZMI Rights Management
ZMI is a multimedia production group and copyright manager active in documentary film, music and cultural arts. We work with artists to develop new copyrights and manage copyrights with artists estates.
ZMI and Arcadia make up our label group which hosts experimental, rock, americana, jazz and dance artists. The ethos of our music division can be summed up by reading the following by Mr. Frank Zappa:
“Remember the 60s? That era that a lot of people have these glorious memories of?…They really weren’t that great, those years...One thing that did happen in the 60s was some music of an unusual and experimental nature did get recorded, did get released. The executives of the day were cigar-chomping old guys who looked at the product and said, 'I don’t know. Who knows what it is? Record it, stick it out. If it sells, alright!'" (Frank Zappa 1987).
We are not a bunch of cigar chomping old guys but we are a copyright management company that creates and produces new material for commercial release. As an artist centric group we work with artists to create unique legacies for their chosen craft, along the way developing last relationships and taking risks by investing in new productions, new material and new art. ZMI is incorporated in England, based in London, England and Atlanta, Georgia and administered globally.
