Fedez returns to SIAE. The artist and judge of together – said Fedez -. This decision arises first of all from the fact that my ideological battle was never against SIAE first and foremost but was against the monopoly that once existed and no longer exists today. Over the years I have also learned to recognize the merits of SIAE in changing and making technological changes in favor of authors and publishers. And from here a new format is born called SIAE recounts where I will interview authors, publishers and also SIAE personalities. It will be very interesting to compare ourselves.”
The tensions of the past
Fedez does not deny or cancel the recent tense past with the company that manages the copyrights of musicians in Italy: “For years I was in opposition to SIAE, I was the first artist in Italy to leave SIAE and to break what was coming called a “monopoly”. I was firmly convinced of that choice then, and it is a choice that I would make again because I believe that opening up to the free market could bring about renewal for everyone. To date, SIAE is a company that protects and collects with the tools we have available in 2023.”
“Fedez returns to SIAE: his choice shows us that the path we have undertaken in recent years is going in the right direction. The 2023 SIAE is a collecting society that works by listening completely to its authors and publishers. While we work for offer increasingly efficient digital services, we are already looking to the future, stimulated by the challenges of a cultural and creative industry in full evolution”, declares the Italian Society of Authors and Publishers.
