CISAC: giving creators their fair share


CISAC: giving creators their fair share

The International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers works to ensure the world’s artists and creators get their fair share of royalties. CISAC’s general counsel Gadi Oron tells TBO how it’s done.

What does CISAC do?

We are the umbrella body for collective management organisations (CMOs, also known as authors’ societies) around the world.

We represent 227 such organisations from 120 countries as our members. Through these members, we are the voice of more than three million creators from all artistic fields including music, audiovisual and visual art. We work closely with creators to facilitate relationships with governments to promote artists’ interests. We also engage in a range of other activities and services that we provide to our members.
