Authors and Publishers
Is your music played on the radio? Do your creations end up on compilation CDs? If you declare what you are entitled to through Buma/Stemra, you can be sure that you will receive a remuneration if other people use your work. Using the user-friendly portal lets you access exclusive information about creations, your rights, and the services of Buma/Stemra. In addition, it is easy to manage and keep an eye on up-to-date online summaries of your earnings.
If you have composed a piece of music or have written some lyrics, and the music will be made available to the public or will be duplicated, it is a good idea to register with Buma/Stemra. Buma handles music made available to the public (on radio, TV, internet, or a performance) and Stemra is concerned with the replication of music (e.g. on a CD or DVD). If you are unsure, contact us and we will be happy to advise you.
