Edith Severs started her career in the music industry at Buma/Stemra as coordinator of the audio visual department. At that time this was the only ‘commercial island' in the field of syncs.

Zomba Music was bought by BMG in 2002.
She started her own independent music publishing company Copyright Power International in 1992.

It specilises in guarding international royalty flows, sync licensing and a boutique music library “Liberry”.
