SAZAS Society is a non-profit Slovenian collective authors' society for the protection and promotion of musical authors' rights. SAZAS connects authors' creativeness with publics - music users, collects royalties for the public use of music within the territory of the Republic of Slovenia, and distributes the collected royalties to authors or right holders. SAZAS is also a full member of CISAC, a global international confederation of authors' and composers societies.
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.
