Are you organising a public reading or a literary exhibition?

Then you need permission from the author(s). If the author of the work you want to use is a member of Sabam, you can arrange your licence via Unisono. In exchange, we will ensure that the royalties you pay are correctly distributed to the author(s).

Are you using a quote from a text in a book or online? This is called a literary reproduction. This requires the direct approval of the author or publisher. Sabam does not intervene in this. Don't forget to always mention the name of the author you’re quoting!
