Stakeholder Engagement and Communications Office in Gauteng - Samro


The acronym SAMRO is the abbreviation for: Southern African Music Rights Organisation, a non-profit a collecting society whose key function is to administer the public performance, broadcast, diffusion and reproduction (aka mechanical) rights in musical works on behalf of its members (composers, songwriters and music publishers). This SAMRO does by functioning as a collective administration society that negotiates “blanket licences” with music users who then have access to SAMRO's extensive repertoire of copyright musical works. SAMRO is created and controlled by composers, songwriters and music publishers, with a Board of Directors elected by and from the membership.Thus the organisation has been set up to achieve an economy of scale in collection on behalf of members'of copyrighted musical works. The organisation is incorporated as a Company, limited by Guarantee, has no share capital and is non-profit making. Our mission is to be a worldclass African society that meets our member's expectations with a commitment to sound management, cost-effective services, and the highest business ethics and values, which include being quality service driven, focused on team work, committed to integrity, and visionary. By virtue of the bilateral (reciprocal) agreements for the protection of intellectual property or through the Berne Convention with many other similar music copyright organisations around the world, SAMRO protects an extensive repertoire written by thousands of songwriters and composers worldwide. Presently, SAMRO is linked to over 200 collecting societies for mechanical reproduction rights or public performing rights. Apart from our own members (who number close to 7000 writers, music publishers and beneficial right holders), SAMRO currently represents over 1,6 million rights owners, of all nationalities, in Southern Africa in respect of their performing rights.
