Legal deposit

Under the law, you are required to deposit copies of your recordings to the Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec. SOPROQ can do this for you.

As a maker, you are required, under the Act respecting the Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec and the Regulation respecting the Deposit of Published Documents, to submit copies of all your sound recordings to the Bibliothèque. SOPROQ can do this for you.

What is legal deposit?

Under current legislation, two copies of each sound recording produced must be supplied, free of charge, to the Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec within a specified time after the release date.

We do it for you

Through a special agreement with the Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec, SOPROQ deposits sound recordings on behalf of its members, providing it receives sufficient copies to meet the requirements of the Act.

To find out how to submit your recordings and what information to provide with each one, contact us.
