The use of recorded music on the Internet is also subject to the consent of the music producers. SIMIM is currently intervening in the granting of user licenses by the music producers in the following practices:
- podcasting for radio and non-radio stations
- background music on websites
Webcasting / Streaming
You make phonograms available exclusively to the public via the Internet through the technique known as webcasting. This is not a simultaneous transmission of FM and/or DAB+ signals.
a) For radio stations
You make files available to the public over the Internet through podcasts that already include radio programs, compilations or derivatives thereof, and in which phonograms are used.
b) For non-radio stations
You make files available to the public over the Internet via podcasts using phonograms.
Background music on websites
You or your company, public service or association decide to place background music on one of the company websites. Sabam has been mandated by SIMIM to collect this fee under the Unisono project. More information can be found on www.unisono.be. You can also file a report on their site.
