Sacem strikes Euro deal with Korean authors’ society Komca


French collecting society Sacem has signed a deal with the Korea Music Copyright Association (Komca) to manage the latter’s members’ online music rights in Europe.

That means that the songs represented by Komca will be included in Sacem’s licensing deals with digital music services. It’s good timing, given the continued global popularity of K-Pop, from the biggest acts like BTS and Blackpink to emerging artists following in their footsteps.

“In these times of crisis, when digital usage continues to grow in spite of everything, it is all the more important to ensure that the works of creators and publishers are well represented on all continents,” noted Sacem CEO Jean-Noël Tronc in a statement.
