SCPP distributes the rights that your music generates
abroad thanks to agreements signed with 18 countries
When you joined, you mandated the SCPP to perform a number
of acts on your behalf.
These mandates entrust SCPP with the task of entering into
general contracts of common interest with the users of sound recordings and
music videos in France, allowing them to broadcast, communicate, and reproduce
your catalog for this purpose. These mandates also entrust the SCPP with the
task of having the collective management companies collect the remuneration
granted by the laws of their country to your sound recordings when they are
broadcasted and/or reproduced.
With regard to the sound recording mandates (statutory and
optional) and through agreements signed with our sister companies in a number
of countries, the SCPP will distribute to you the rights that your
music generates abroad without any additional cost.
Thanks to the bilateral and reciprocal agreements signed by
the SCPP with a large number of international collective management companies,
the SCPP's members, via the SCPP, are able to collect the fees that their
creations have generated by being broadcasted and/or reproduced abroad.
The SCPP has signed agreements with the following companies:
- GERMANY (GVL)
- BELGIUM (SIMIM)
- CANADA (SOPROQ)
- SPAIN (AGEDI)
- FINLAND (GRAMEX)
- GEORGIA (GCA)
- GREECE (GRAMMO)
- ITALY (SCF) (AFI)
- JAMAICA (JAMMS)
- NIGERIA (COSON)
- UGANDA (UPRS)
- NETHERLANDS (SENA) (NVPI)
- UNITED KINGDOM (PPL)
- RUSSIA (RPA)
- SERBIA (OFPS)
- SWEDEN (IFPI)
- UKRAINE (UMA) (ULCRR)
- USA (Sound Exchange) (AARC)
A simple 4-step system:
1. You indicate to the SCPP the sound recordings you have
declared but for which you don’t hold the rights abroad (by country, by type of
2. The SCPP declares the part of your catalog for which you
hold the rights abroad to foreign collective management companies
with which it has signed reciprocal agreements.
3. These foreign companies collect your rights in their
countries and pay them back to the SCPP.
4. The SCPP distributes these rights to you once every six
months in the same way as it does with your rights generated in France.
How do I set this system in motion?
To set this system in motion, you must take the first step
because the SCPP will not risk transmitting sound recording declarations for
which you do not hold the rights in this country to a collective management
company of another country.
For each country, you must exclude declarations that the
SCPP will make on your behalf:
- The sound recordings you represent as a licensee in France but
- The sound recordings of which you are the owner (producer) but
for which you entrusted the management and collection of the rights to the
local producer (your licensee) in this country.
In your private space (to which you have
access after you have logged in), the SCPP offers you the possibility of
configuring your choices by types of uses and types of rights.
You may, in fact, have mandated your
representative in one country to collect the broadcast rights of your sound
recordings, but not the remuneration for Private Copying. In this case, the
SCPP will ask the collective management company of that country to pay you this
remuneration—and only this—through its intermediary.
