SOCAN’s Board of Directors has approved a special $50,000 contribution to Creators for Ukraine, a new global support fund dedicated to uniting the global creative community in support of Ukrainian creators and refugees forced to flee the country.

Contributions from the new fund will be highly focused on specific refugee projects, and support of the humanitarian work being organized within the community, and primarily with the Polish authors and composers’ rights society, ZAiKS.

Also, we have suspended the transfer of royalties to the Russian Authors’ Society, that country’s music rights collective, until further notice.

Also, CISAC has written an Open Letter of solidarity from creators, and is advocating for signatures. CISAC asks all creators everywhere to join them, sign this message, and share it using the hashtag #creatorsforukraine.
