ELECTRONIC MUSIC: WHAT AUTHOR'S RIGHTS ARE THERE?

  • Remixes of live musical works: you collect royalties and have also collected them for the original works from the creators. In this case, you should send SACEM a "Broadcast statement - electronic music".
  • Remixes of musical works for commercialisation: prior authorisations are necessary. You have to ask the creators of the works you are remixing.

To learn all the details of your status, consult the booklet "Creator of electronic music: join Sacem".
