​If you use protected works on your premises, then you need to obtain permission from the corresponding copyright holders. We are conscious it is impossible to obtain permission from all the individual authors, but you needn’t worry; to be able to use any musical or audio-visual work which is part of the repertoire of SGAE, whether it is Spanish or from abroad, you will need our licence to make use of such repertoire and increase the profitability of your business.

FAQ's

  • If I buy original CDs or acquire music on the Internet, why do I have to pay?

    ​Because the purchase of a CD, cassette, vinyl record, etc. does not entail the right to play it in public. When you purchase a phonographic recording, you only acquire the right to use it in private.​​

  • Why do I have to pay to SGAE and to AGEDI-AIE?

    ​Due to the wide variety of rights holders present in certain exploitations of works and benefits protected contained in a particular medium. In other words, the SGAE manages the Rights of Authors, while the AGEDI deals with those of Phonographic Producers and the AIE those of Performing Artistes.​

  • G. Who gets the money you collect?

    The amounts collected on the basis of the fee rates published by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport and on the SGAE’s own web site are intended for the authors of the musical and audio-visual works (whether Spanish members or those of foreign Entities). This share-out is calculated depending on the specific works used and how they are used, thanks to statistical systems or surveys carried out with a method set out in the regulations of the Management Entity and known by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport. ​
