Declaring a Work

Once the registration at SIAE has been completed, Members and Mandates will need to deposit all the works intended to the public use they have or they have bought the rights for.

The declaration of the work must be submitted by all the Members and Principals who have taken part in the creation or are the publshers or the transferees.

HOW TO DECLARE A WORK

Every work must be deposited by submitting a declaration form (Form 91). More specifically, you will have to indicate the identifying information of the work on the form: the title, the authors of the music, the authors of the literary text, the authors of the translation, etc. Also, the remuneration distribution that the work will produce, as agreed among the right claimants.

Together with the declaration form, a complete sample of the work, according to the radio and television work type, must be deposited.

The samples of the deposited works will remain with the Society, who does not take any responsibility for their conservation.

The documentation must be delivered to the General Directorate office – Documentation Office DOR Section, or to the Local Offices, either by delivering it directly or sending it by registered mail.

The declaration forms, together with the sample of the work, can be sent by mail to SIAE – Sezione DOR – Ufficio Documentazione - Viale della Letteratura, 30 – Roma; to one of the following branches: Bari, Bologna, Cagliari, Genova, Milano, Napoli, Palermo, Roma; by registered mail to the following address SIAE – Sezione DOR – Ufficio Documentazione - Viale della Letteratura, 30 – 00144 Roma.
