Negotiation of reciprocal representation agreements with international authors’ societies

In order to ensure the payment of royalties for the exploitation of works outside France, SACD has developed bilateral relations with foreign authors’ societies and signed reciprocal representation agreements in the field of performing arts and audiovisual arts.

As far as the latter are concerned, as in many countries rights have been granted to scriptwriters and/or directors, these countries have been able to set up management societies for authors’ rights. SACD establishes bilateral relations with these societies so that they can protect and represent the interests of its members on their respective territories.
