We only played a compilation CD / the radio was on. Is a playlist necessary?

Yes. Also in these cases it is useful for Sabam that you submit the playlist via eLicensing (FR version - NL version). After all, Sabam distributes the copyright royalties among the authors and composers involved based on your playlist.

If there is no playlist, we will distribute the royalties you paid over all playlists available for live performances or on the basis of ‘substitution lists' in case of a party.
