As a result of the current measures taken by the government to combat the corona virus, all our employees are working from home. The offices are therefore closed until 5 June. If you have any questions, please consult our list of FAQs. You did not find the answer to your question? Contact us via our contact form. This way, your question will be treated with priority. Do you still want to reach us by phone? This is possible every working day from 9.30 AM to 1 PM and from 2 PM until 3.30PM, on 02 286 84 84.
Due to maintenance works, our eServices will not be available from Wednesday 27 May at 5 pm until Thursday 28 May at 9 am. We apologise for this inconvenience.
According to the Belgian Copyright Act, every artist is entitled to financial compensation if his or her work is used in public.
Do you perform frequently? Are your works often streamed, played on radio, TV,…? Then it is quite complicated to follow up on this yourself. In that case, it becomes useful to become a member of a copyright management organisation like Sabam.
If this is not the case, it’s best to wait a bit before joining Sabam.
If you are a performing artist (singer, musician,…) and you don’t write your own work, there is no point in becoming a member of Sabam. However it might be useful to become a member of Playright, the organisation managing the neighbouring or related rights.
