Who we are
Founded by ADISQ in 1991, SOPROQ – the Quebec Collective Society for the Rights of Makers of Sound and Video Recordings – is a non-profit organization that exists to administer maker’s royalties. Its mission is to ensure that the makers of sound and video recordings benefit fully from certain rights to which they are entitled: reproduction right, equitable remuneration right and the right arising from the private copying regime.
SOPROQ also administers the granting of general licenses for music videos and for sound recording reproduction.
SOPROQ’s Board of Directors is made up of people recognized in the music industry, and its team is highly experienced in the area of copyright.
