How to translate ideas into music

With over 20 years of experience, Editora Dubas is a specialist in copyright management and musical dissemination.

Publishing has developed as a main focus of Dubas. Our repertoire brings together the works of several Brazilian composers and important international catalogs in a vast universe of sound, talent and style, which certainly have what you require to translate great ideas into music.

Coupled with the experience acquired over the years of operation also as a music label, the attention in increasingly knowing the characteristics of each catalog allows us to mediate the needs and interests of the authors and copyright holders, as well as clients interested in associating their projects with the managed works.

The end result is a work that has the required security to always be innovative and the legitimacy to provide active participation with the copyright associations and different discussion forums on the topic.

The publisher is also responsible for managing important national catalogs, including YB, Glu Glu Glu, Embolacha, Morena Branca, Cor de Sol, Scotti Publishing, and Boa Música. Also highlighted is the catalog of 3Pontas Edições Musicais, which includes all the work written by Ronaldo Bastos and his partner Fernando Brant, as well as other major composers. They are jointly responsible for an abundant repertoire of new compositions and standards immortalized by the biggest names in music.

In recent years, the repertoire of Editora Dubas has been used in several forms, in memorable situations that include advertisements, movies, soap operas, series, and other projects, such as versions in different languages and new recordings.

The effort to build a good relationship with the market and promote its repertoire is proportional to the concern in defending copyright, guided by the words of Fernando Brant, the composer and one of the founders of Editora 3PONTAS.


The author exists

Copyright is an achievement of civilization, the opposite is barbarism.

Copyright is one of the human rights (UN Charter).

The author has the exclusive right to use his work (an entrenched clause of the Brazilian Constitution).

Copyright is a private right.

We are capable of creating and managing that which belongs to us. For this, we do not need the help of the State.

There are two sides to the issue: the creator who wants to receive payment and the companies that do not want to pay.

To resolve this, the Courts and the State can and must collaborate.

The current law protects the creators in the real and virtual world. It can be improved and refined.

What happens on the internet in relation to copyright is transitory.

The technology that creates supposed conflicts will resolve them.

All authors should have at their disposal all the information about what they receive and distribute.

This communication has to be public and also offered to the Ministry of Culture.

The social function of art is to spread beauty and aesthetic pleasure to mankind.

The obligation to make culture accessible to all belongs to the State, without being prejudicial to the author.
