SUISA-free music is music where neither the composers, lyricists, arrangers nor publishers are members of SUISA, or where the music in question is not registered with SUISA. In this case, the author takes care of the collection of his/her sublicensed works himself/herself.
Depending on the type of use (e.g. use as SUISA-free music for a product film), a one-off licence fee is charged as standard. SUISA will not charge the customer (licensee) any additional costs afterwards.

SUISA's income comes from various sources, such as the performance of musical works in public, the reproduction of musical works or the use of musical works on the Internet.
SUISA is a member of the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers (CISAC) and works - similar to the AKM - cooperates with other collecting societies worldwide to protect and exploit the copyrights of music creators internationally.
SUISA also offers various services to help music creators manage their rights. These include, among others, the registration of works, advice on legal issues and the payment of royalties.
Overall, SUISA plays an important role in safeguarding and enforcing the copyrights of music creators in Switzerland and the Principality of Liechtenstein.
Music creators who produce "SUISA-free music" retain full control over their musical works and can use, distribute and sell them without restrictions. This can be particularly beneficial for small bands and independent musicians who do not have the resources to take on the management of their rights and the payment of royalties to a collecting society like SUISA.
There are also special licensing models for music creators who want to produce "SUISA-free music" but still want to benefit from the advantages of working with a collecting society. For example, SUISA offers the possibility to license musical works for use in films, TV and radio broadcasts or other commercial projects, even if they were not created by members of the collecting society.
"SUISA-free music" refers to music that has not been created by members of the collecting society SUISA and is therefore not represented by SUISA. This means that no royalties have to be paid to SUISA if this music is performed in public or otherwise used.
