Radio

If you have a private radio station, Sabam offers you (under the brand name Unisono) a licence with which you as a broadcaster can make free use of our repertoire. In return for this licence, you have to pay copyright royalties and deliver the playlists to Unisono. We would like to stress that this only concerns a copyright authorisation. In addition, the Fair Remuneration is due to PlayRight and SIMIM.

The amount you have to pay depends on your potential audience and your income. In concrete terms you pay a percentage of your turnover coupled with a minimum fee.

For stations with a small potential audience and low turnover, we only charge a lump sum based on the weekly broadcasting schedule. For the more commercial radio stations, the calculation is based on their income.

We charge 2.8% on the first income bracket and apply a collection rate of 1.5% to income exceeding a certain threshold. Both the threshold and the minimum royalty are determined per broadcasting programme and are indexed annually.

This rate applies to local, regional and national radios.

Web radio

The fee for web radio stations is determined on the basis of the income and the maximum number of simultaneous streams.

As with private radio stations, the royalty consists of a percentage on the income coupled with a minimum fee. In the case of web radios, this is 2.8% on all income generated.
