The Society of Authors and Composers of Mexico (SACM) is a non-profit collective management company created to strengthen the link between music users and composers. SACM promotes a new musical culture in Mexico that includes the recognition of musical copyright, and jointly seeks, with the society and the government of Mexico, the due protection of intellectual works as an important part of the cultural heritage of the nation and as an essential element of Mexico’s cultural identity. SACM believes that the work of composers is a profession worthy of protection.

What is Music Publishing?
Music Publishing is the business of protecting and promoting song copyrights and collecting the royalties that these copyrights generate. Think of a song as intellectual property (it's an original piece of art!), and music publishing as the business that makes sure that songwriters get paid a fair compensation when their intellectual property is used by companies. Those companies could be record labels (mechanical royalties), radio stations, bars, and restaurants (performance royalties), or film studios and advertising agencies (sync license fees), and many more.
