Videos with music on the internet

Would you like to publish your own film or video with music protected by copyright on your website or on social media platforms? There are a few points to consider here so that you can use the music.


Reproduction rights


If you produce a film or video, you need a licence to be allowed to use the music in your production. You can obtain this licence from SUISA in accordance with tariff VN. It also depends on what kind of film or video it is and for what purposes it is published.


An individual video (image, art, short or explanatory film) which has been produced with a production budget of less than CHF 2,500 and intended to be made available free of charge on your website over a longer period of time can be licensed from SUISA at a blanket fee of CHF 150. 


You can make your video accessible on all social media platforms for an additional blanket fee of CHF 150. Please note that SUISA has no influence on the terms and conditions of the social media platforms. 


In order to obtain a licence on the basis of these blanket rates please fill in this form


If you offer videos or films for download or streaming, SUISA offers you these licences.


For companies that make several of their own videos available free of charge on the internet or social media platforms, SUISA offers package deals for small and medium-sized enterprises (up to 49 employees or up to CHF 9 million annual turnover) and large companies (more than 49 employees or more than CHF 9 million annual turnover).


Please note that large companies must also license the reproduction rights. For this purpose please use this form. In addition, other rights such as neighbouring rights and synchronization rights may also have to be obtained. You will find information on this here.


For online advertising campaigns, other licence conditions or tariffs apply. Further information can be accessed here.

SUISA will provide you with the reproduction rights (Tariff VN) and the making available rights. Please note the other rights involved or the SUISA overall solution for Production Music.
