French collecting society SACEM has announced the launch of a new rights body in Polynesia. Called, well, SACEM Polynesia, it will license song rights to broadcasters and public places using music in the region, as well as representing the performing rights of songwriters and music publishers from that part of the world.

SACEM says that it will provide the new society “with expertise and infrastructure to enable new creators and publishers to join, register their works, and collect and distribute royalties and payments to creators and publishers in Polynesia”.

The new organisation will be run by Virginie Bruant, who says: “After working alongside Polynesian artists for several years, I am delighted with this new page that we are turning with SACEM Polynesia. Together, we will co-develop this creative house that will allow our members to be paid for their work and to support local creation”.

Meanwhile SACEM CEO Jean-Noël Tronc added: “The creation of SACEM Polynesia demonstrates once again that SACEM is mobilised more than ever to improve the collection of the royalties of songwriters, composers and publishers and thus enable culture and creativity to flourish. SACEM is proud to accompany the launch of SACEM Polynesia and contribute to the influence of Polynesian culture”.
