At our Annual and Special Members Meeting on June 12, 2018, the plan to combine the activities of SODRAC and SOCAN by integrating SODRAC’s assets with SOCAN has been approved by our members. SODRAC’s management team and employees are now employees of SOCAN.
After 33 years of defending and promoting the rights of Canadian creators, we are proud to partner with SOCAN, whose mission and goals are in harmony with ours. In the current industry where globalization and digital consumption are the norm, pooling our respective strengths is crucial. Our members benefit from increased bargaining and defense power, as well as more efficient services.
We are extremely excited about the future of copyright in Canada. To all our members, we thank you for the trust you have shown us since 1985 and we look forward to assisting you in this promising new chapter.
The SODRAC team
