Kaboom Radio New Confirms SACEM and YouTube Reach An Agreement

Kaboom Radio News has confirmed that SACEM (société des auteurs, compositeurs et éditeurs de musique), France's largest collecting society representing authors, composers and publishers announced today the first French collection society deal with the video platform YouTube.

The license covers the international repertoire managed by SACEM including in particular the anglo-american-repertoire of multinational publishers, as well as other works managed by SACEM present on the platform, from the launch of the service in France to 2012.

This agreement means that authors, authors-directors, humorists, composers and publisher members that SACEM represents will now be paid when their work is used on YouTube.

This is yet another step in YouTube's ongoing effort to help foster the creation of French content and reward French artists for creative works available online.

In France and throughout the world, YouTube is a comprehensive destination with content that ranges from the educational to the entertaining, and music is a core component.

Bernard Miyet, CEO of SACEM, said: "This agreement demonstrates once more the willingness of SACEM to promote the legal use of works online, especially on video-sharing platforms. Indeed, it is important and symbolic that YouTube, the largest video-sharing site, pay French creators when their content is discovered and viewed on the site. I am satisfied that the open-mindedness of each and a common will to end in a well-balanced result allowed us to surmount the difficulties inherent to the negotiation of an agreement concerning such an innovative but complex model "

Christophe Muller, Director of Partnerships Southern and Eastern Europe and Middle East, YouTube adds: "Since the launch of YouTube in Europe we've been working hard to forge relationships that allow YouTube users to enjoy their favourite songs and discover new music on the site. We are extremely pleased to have reached an agreement with SACEM to help their members earn revenue and to enable new musical talents to emerge."

David Guetta says: "We've been partners of YouTube since 2007, and we use it every day to allow our community of fans to access our content globally. My YouTube channel, reaching about 350M views, is the key element of our online commitment. I'm thrilled to take this new step with the French music industry. It's a great new adventure for artists that will help us receive greater recognition for our work."

Alain Chamfort, author, composer, performer and Vice President of the Sacem Board adds: «This is an incredible step forward for authors recognition and respect of copyright.»
