OWN YOUR AWESOME
We administer Performing Rights on behalf of our members – music composers, authors and publishers.
SAMRO’s primary role is to administer Performing Rights on behalf of our members. We do so by licensing music users (such as television and radio broadcasters, live music venues, retailers, restaurants, promoters and shopping centres), through the collection of licence fees which are then distributed as royalties.
Music creators (song writers, composers and publishers) are entitled to royalties every time their music is used.
SAMRO collects money from establishments that use music like clubs, banks, radios and many others. We then distribute this money to music creators in a form of royalties.
As a Music User, you need to apply for a licence.
As a Music Creator, you need to apply to become a member.
