Capasso

CAPASSO is a mechanical rights licensing agency based in Johannesburg - South Africa, which collects and distributes royalties to its members: music publishers and composers.

CAPASSO licenses the reproduction or reformatting of musical works. This is because mechanical right (which forms part of copyright) is raised whenever a reproduction (copy) or format transfer takes place. CAPASSO is authorised, by way of mandate from its members, to issue such mechanical rights licences, collect the licence fees and distribute them as royalties back to the members.
