In 2016, SOCAN acquired US-based digital reproduction rights agency Audiam. Two years later, we acquired Canadian reproduction rights collective society SODRAC. Both acquisitions have cemented our commitment and global leadership position to represent reproduction rights of music publishers in Canada and the United States.
We provide compelling solutions for our rights holders’ reproduction rights and offer low commissions, a la carte options, and the ability to collect internationally, if required, in addition to many other benefits. If you are a publisher or self-published writer, you need to register your songs only once with SOCAN to be paid for your performing rights and reproduction rights on digital and broadcast mechanical at the same time.
To have SOCAN represent your reproduction rights, sign up here. If you have already assigned your reproduction rights to a publisher, SOCAN will take direction from your publisher.
If you were previously a SODRAC member, you will need to transfer your reproduction rights to SOCAN. To complete the Reproduction Rights Representation agreement, click here.
