What is copyright?
Copyright gives writers, photographers, but also lyricists and composers the final say in what happens to their work. This lets them forbid anyone else from distorting their work, for example.
Buma/Stemra promotes the interests of domestic and foreign composers, writers and music publishers in the Netherlands. Central task of Buma/Stemra is the exploitation (licensing and distribution) and management of music royalties. In addition, Buma/Stemra protects music copyrights, and stimulates and supports the Dutch national music culture through Buma Cultuur.
On the website of Buma/Stemra you will find more information about copyright.
