International management

The SGAE has signed reciprocal agreements with over 200 other Foreign Societies of Authors, thus ensuring that you have your works protected in a multitude of countries. Our Society has undertaken to defend the interests in Spain of authors and publishers who are members of those other entities and, at the same time, those entities do the same for our members in their respective countries. That is why, if you are out of the your country of origin or your work is used abroad, you have nothing to worry about. We make sure you receive all the attention you deserve and collect what corresponds exclusively to you as a legitimate creator.
