which is why it is not in a position to provide legal advice services only tailored to performers. Hence this service has been outsourced.


The Swiss Performers' Cooperative Society SIG offers legal advice for performers on behalf and at the expense of SWISSPERFORM. This free service applies primarily for queries concerning the following areas:

  • audio and audiovisual recordings and their exploitation
  • contract law, tax or social security related queries as well as questions concerning recordings of performances on audio and audiovisual carriers.


Queries related to other areas are forwarded by SIG to the respective associations.
