So, as we have a singer-songwriter in our team, it was only natural to look at it to give our feedback, some of our skills, our curiosity and above all our taste for the substance and form of innovative solutions. Here is Musicstart !

Who is the SACEM?

Before saying a little more about this brand new solution, are you familiar with the SACEM? Well, it was created in 1851 and today represents the vast majority of the musical repertoire.

In short, its main mission is to manage the collection and distribution of the rights that are due to the authors, composers and music publishers who are the so-called members. It therefore ensures this collection and distribution, whatever the medium: phono, digital, event-based, etc.
