Other forms of use

Works can be used in many other ways and when they do not fall under any of the above headings, the easiest way is to contact us. Except where there is an exception in the law, the principle always remains the same: an exploitation requires the specific prior authorisation of the authors or right owners, and SSA will generally be able to grant you the necessary authorisations for the use of works in its repertoire.

However, authorisation for public screenings of audiovisual works is the responsibility of the entities producing such works, of film distribution companies, or of certain companies specialised in licensing for specific uses. The Pro Cinema website may be useful in finding the company that is entitled to grant authorisations in your case.

Only in exceptional cases, for example if a video recording has not been commercialised and is a work in SSA’s repertoire, will SSA be able to help you with authorisation for a public screening.
