International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers
CISAC – the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers – is the world’s leading network of authors’ societies.
With 227 member societies in 118 countries, CISAC represents more than 5 million creators from all geographic areas and all artistic repertoires; music, audiovisual, drama, literature and visual arts. CISAC is presided over by Swedish songwriter, musician, singer, guitarist, producer and a member of the Swedish musical group ABBA Björn Ulvaeus. CISAC protects the rights and promotes the interests of creators worldwide. They enable collective management organisations to seamlessly represent creators across the globe and ensure that royalties flow to authors for the use of their works anywhere in the world.
Founded in 1926, CISAC is a non-governmental, not-for-profit organisation with headquarters in France and regional offices in Africa, South America (Chile), Asia-Pacific (China) and Europe (Hungary).
