LaScam collects your royalties
All LaScam’s energies are directed towards one objective: collecting royalties and distributing them to authors. This is the society’s basic activity, its raison d’être.
LaScam negotiates blanket licences for the exploitation of its repertoire by television broadcasters, radio broadcasters, video producers, etc. It does not negotiate the rights of this or that particular author but rather its entire repertoire made up of the hundreds of thousands of works notified by the 45,000 members.
Then LaScam individually apportions the lump-sum amounts collected under those licences between all the authors whose works have been used. The diverse nature of the conditions of exploitation gives rise to very varied licensing arrangements in legal, economic and practical terms.
To receive their royalties, authors must join LaScam and notify their works based on certain procedures. Once these formalities have been completed, LaScam’s departments go into action.
