SERBIAN MUSIC AUTHORS’ ORGANISATION
During the last 70 years, Sokoj has been adapting its organisation and structure to demands and needs of the times. Sokoj manages the rights of music authors, lyricists, arrangers, and other holders of copyright in musical works of all genres, with or without words.
Sokoj represents over 12.000 domestic music authors and other copyright holders and, on the basis of contracts entered into with foreign copyright societies, more than 4.500.000 foreign authors i.e. the entire world music repertoire.
Sokoj’s organisation is designed on the most advanced model of the European collecting societies.
Since 1956, Sokoj has been a member of the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers (CISAC) with headquarters in Paris.
Since 1959, Sokoj has been a member of the Bureau International de l’Edition Mécanique (BIEM) administering mechanical rights.
