Italian society of authors and publishers is glad to support the 15th edition of Ischia Film Festival, event committed toward locations of cinema that aims to promote the cultural identity of the area through audiovisual works.
SIAE, Italian society of authors and publishers, is the Italian copyright collecting agency. It is, indeed, a body composed by partners, non-profit and totally independent in its operating as a company that does not rest on public finances.
SIAE is a real support for the freedom of creators in any sector of culture and show business: music, lyric poetry, cinema, theatre, literature, visual arts and broadcasting companies. With the goal of protecting copyright, this agency contributes to the development of the overall creation chain of our country.
The company shows a particular commitment towards the youth via facilitations and concrete activities: the zeroing of the membership quota for authors and publishers under 31 years old and for editorial start-ups that have operated for less than two years, direct support through scholarships and facilitated rates in order to help new talents during their professional growth. More than 140 scholarships were supplied in 2016.
In 2016 SIAE has initiated, together with MIBACT, the project Sillumina that consists of the distribution of 10% of profits for private copies in activities that facilitate the creativity and cultural promotion of authors, executors and interprets under 35.
Nowadays, SIAE has more than 83,000 partners, both authors and publishers; 12 millions of works directly managed; 45 millions of works managed through contracts of mutual representation; agreements with 120 countries for the administration of their inventory in the world; 1.2 millions of license agreements released; 500,000 users of SIAE inventory on the territory.
The company operates on national territory via a widespread net composed by 462 agent agency, 10 regional/interregional headquarters and 28 branches and it represents a key body not only for authors and publishers but also for the other professionals and people operating in show business.
New SIAE is more digital, easier, more transparent. The society, through a crucial digitalization plan, has simplified the access to its services both for partners and for the users.
