Copyrights, how does it work?

In France the Sacem manages the copyrights for the right owners (publishers, authors, composers, arranger).

To sell your music on Wiseband and on the digital platforms, you are not obliged to be enrolled to the Sacem ; in this case you will only get the platforms royalties and the Sacem will not pay you  the rights on the sales. 

If your music is registered to the Sacem, you will get the copyrights on each track sold. Thus, for each sale of a track that is registered to the Sacem, Wiseband and the digital platforms deduct the mechanical reproduction rights owed to the Sacem (8% of the selling price excluding tax, with a minimum exclusive of tax of 7 cents per track and 70 cents per album). Then, the Sacem put back those copyrights to the authors and composers of the sold works.
