  • What’s the difference between SAMI and STIM?

The major difference between SAMI and STIM is that we represent different rights holders. When you play music in your business, you must pay copyright compensation to both organisations. 

SAMI represents the artists and musicians who perform on the music.

STIM represents the authors who write the lyrics and the music.

Even if SAMI and STIM were a joint collecting society, the cost would be the same, since they are two different groups who are both entitled to compensation separately.
