By Independents for Independents
The SPPF was created in 1986 by several independent labels wishing to develop musical diversity in France, to support musical independence, creativity and freedom of production. Through their involvement, they were able to create the conditions allowing all the Independent Labels to preserve and control the collective management of their neighboring rights within a “common house”. It collects and distributes the neighboring rights of Independant Producers only, whether French or foreign, whatever kind of music they are producing.
Today, the values that founded the SPPF can be found in its approach and support, entirely dedicated to Independent Labels and their needs. The diversity of the musical repertoire that we manage and that of the independent companies (VSBs, SMEs and artist-producer) that we represent reflect the SPPF DNA. We strive to create the conditions allowing you to develop and preserve your freedom to produce and your capacity to take risks in order to maintain a rich, varied and always renewed independent musical production, and to remain master of your rights’ management.
A structure that unites us
The SPPF is a place of meetings, exchanges and observation of the world of the independent musical production, which is in permanent mutation.
We are mobilizing to promote the voice of all the Independent Producers, in particular with cultural and economic institutions and public authorities on national and European levels. We invest in collective actions to support your activity.
The SPPF is a place of reflection on the future of the profession of phonogram producer: we support you towards the new forms of production and exploitation of your recordings which upset the management of your rights as Producers.
