The authors' royalties are collected either through an individual collection or through a collective collection.

Curious about the basis on which we collect your royalties from the users of your repertoire? Read all about it on the Unisono website.


The copyright royalties are distributed as follows:

  • According to the keys defined by the copyright holder in advance (when declaring their works),
  • According to the criteria in the Sabam Global Agreement
  • within periods that vary, depending on the type of rights to be distributed
