When to join SUISA ?

It makes sense to become a member of SUISA if your work is used publicly (e.g. if it is broadcast or performed).

Do I need a licence?

Anybody who organises concerts or publishes, reproduces, performs, broadcasts or otherwise disseminates music is automatically a customer of SUISA.

What do law, music and politics have in common?

SUISA operates as part of a network of national and international organisations in the copyright field.

What does SUISA do?

SUISA is committed to ensuring that the value of Swiss musical creation is recognised and fairly remunerated world-wide. And has been since 1923!
