If you wrote or co-wrote a percentage of a musical work that’s been recorded, performed or published, you should join SOCAN to receive the money that you’ve earned. If your songs are played by almost any business, almost anywhere in the world – whether live, on radio, online, on TV, in movies, etc. – SOCAN collects the money that’s owed for your share of those performances. When it comes to getting paid for performances of songs to which you’ve contributed, it’s our business to take care of you. We’ve got your back.
