Declare your publications

As an author, you are entitled to a remuneration when copies of your works are made on a graphic or digital medium. Do not miss this remuneration. So always declare the publication of your works in good time.

Are your texts or images published digitally? Are they printed in a book, catalogue, magazine or newspaper? Declare these publications to Sabam. 

Your published works are copied?
You are then entitled to remuneration for reprographics and private copying. 

How does it work?

Sabam receives certain amounts from collective management companies Reprobel and Auvibel. We then return them to you on the basis of your declarations.

Reprobel invoices reprography compensation to professional users in the private and public sector for photocopying your works. They also invoice compensation to educational and research institutions. 

Auvibel invoices compensation for private copying to manufacturers, importers or intra-community purchasers of equipment or carriers used to make private copies. 
Compensation for private copying is invoiced for: 

  • devices that enable copying for personal use, such as tablets, smartphones and digicorders; 
  • and blank carriers on which copyrighted works can be copied, such as USB sticks and memory cards. 


Declare your publications

Your rights will be calculated according to certain criteria such as:

  • the type of publication (paper or digital);
  • the number of authors, translators and/or editors of the work;
  • the number of pages or characters.

Always declare your publications to Sabam to make sure you get a fair remuneration.

You can do so quickly and easily via MyPublications, the handy online application in your MySabam account. You can submit your registration for the publications of your works in 2021, 2022 and 2023 until 30 September 2024.
