If you’re a composer whose music has been performed, you should join SOCAN in order to claim the money that you’ve earned in royalties for the use of that music. If you’re an screen composer whose scores are performed in movies or on TV, SOCAN obtains information related to those performances globally, collects the money that’s owed for them, and distributes it to you as royalties. If you’re a new classical composer whose symphonies, operas, suites, chamber music, choral work, or other pieces have been performed in SOCAN-licensed concert halls, auditoriums, conservatories or other venues, SOCAN similarly collects your royalties and pays them to you. We also lobby government to ensure that your copyright is respected, and that you’re appropriately remunerated for the use of your work. When it comes to getting paid for performances of your work, it’s our business to take care of you.
