Choose license Do I need a licence for my business?

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.

  • Who gets the money you collect?

    ​It is distributed among the authors or registered holders (direct members and members of foreign entities) in accordance with the works used and how they are used, in the light of the direct documentation furnished and on the basis of statistics or surveys.

  • Why does the SGAE manage public communication rights?

    ​The mission of the SGAE is to manage the rights of its members in any form of Public Communication. In other words, “any and all act whereby a number of persons are able to have access to the work without the prior distribution of copies to each of them”.

    What use is the SGAE for users of musical, theatrical and audio-visual works?

    The SGAE facilitates the prior authorization users need to be able to make use of the works of authors, so that they do not have to approach each individual author separately, something impracticable without the benefits of collective management.

  • Why am I paying to use the SGAE repertoire in a hotel room? Isn’t that considered a domestic or private space?

    ​Since guests do not stay permanently, a hotel is treated as a public space and, in addition, it would be impossible to break the hotel's business down into individual rooms. That is why the rates applied for the use of the repertoire protected by copyright are established for the total number of rooms in the hotel. Furthermore, the rates applied do NOT represent a higher cost than other basic services in the establishment..​
