Société des Auteurs et Compositeurs de Musique (SACEM)

The Société des Auteurs et Compositeurs de Musique collective rights society for music, represents over 137, 000 members (songwriters, composers and publishers) and 40 million international music works in France. Sacem was founded in 1860, and is the oldest collective rights society in the world.

Their main role is to license our member's repertoire, in order to collect and redistribute the rights generated, thus insuring a just remuneration for the use of their works. They also support musical creation by distributing cultural funds, coming mainly from the private copying system.
