Definition Edit

SOCAN (the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada) is the Canadian copyright collective for the right to communicate to the public and publicly perform musical works.

Overview Edit

SOCAN administers these rights on behalf of its members (composers, lyricists, songwriters, and their publishers) and those of affiliated international organizations by licensing the use of their music in Canada. The fees collected are distributed as royalties to its members and to affiliated organizations throughout the world. SOCAN also distributes royalties received from those organizations to its members for the use of their music worldwide.
