BMG Music Publishing (Bertelsmann Music Group) and Turkey's biggest music publisher Taxim Edition have signed a joint venture agreement that will provide global support for Taxim's songwriters.

Under the agreement, BMG Music Publishing will represent Taxim's local artists outside of Turkey. Taxim will continue to sub-publish BMG Music Publishing’s catalogue of more than one million copyrights in Turkey.

Owning licensing rights to some of the biggest music artists in Turkey, including Tarkan, head of Taksim Edition Mine Aksoy revealed that they had made around $30,000 in Russian mobile phone melody sales of Tarkan's "Kuzu Kuzu" and "Dudu" songs in just two months.
