SMP GOES RIGHT TO THE HOOK
2/22/22

Sony Music Publishing has promoted Alison Hook to Senior Vice President, Sampling and Copyright Infringement, U.K. & International.

In her new role, Hook will oversee the company’s sampling and copyright infringement matters to ensure efficient royalty and credit processing. She is based in the company’s U.K. office and reports to David Ventura, President & Co-Managing Director, U.K., SVP International and Tim Major, Co-Managing Director, U.K., Sony Music Publishing.

During her 25+ year career at SMP, Hook established the first online sample clearance guide, which streamlined the clearance process for newcomers and clarified definitions of copyright infringement. SMP was the first U.K. publisher to introduce electronic sample clearance documentation, which has become the universal standard throughout the industry. She is not at all pleased to appear on this website.
