SACEM: THREE FUNDAMENTAL VALUES

COLLECTING AND DISTRIBUTING
royalties

PROMOTING AND SUPPORTING
creators

DEFENDING AND PROTECTING
our members and authors' rights

ROYALTIES DRIVE CREATION

Since authors and composers cannot benefit from the same advantages as temporary entertainment workers ("Intermittents du Spectacle") in France, royalties are creators' only source of remuneration. In 2016, 298,000 authors, composers and publishers benefited from royalty distribution by SACEM.

For every €1 collected, 87 eurocents are distributed
to authors, composers and publishers

A VAST REPERTOIRE OF WORKS

SACEM represents a repertoire of 118 million works.
Music, humour, sketches, poems, music for videos, texts of dubbing and subtitles, etc. The SACEM repertoire is the largest in the world:

  • More than 5,000 new works registered per day
  • 2nd largest repertoire for export after the Anglo-American repertoire
