The International Council of Music Creators
The International Council Of Music Authors (CIAM) was created in 1966 to protect the rights and assert the cultural aspirations of music creators, CIAM focuses on the key issues directly concerning the moral rights of composers and creators of music. It promotes their professional, economic and legal interests and serves as a forum for cooperation and networking. It facilitates the exchange of information, ideas and best practice, and provides practical advice to help musical creators defend their professional environment.
The essential mission of CIAM is to unify the voice of music creators of all repertoires and to be the worldwide umbrella organisation for composers and creators of music.
Fair Trade Music is also part of the CIAM global partner program.
