About ISAC

ISAC - A brief history

The Icelandic Society of Authors & Composers, ISAC was established in 1981. Its main purpose is to protect and enhance the rights of contemporary songwriters, composers and lyricists in Iceland.

ISAC is one of two STEF societies, the collecting society of Iceland, the other being The Icelandic Society of Classical Composers.


ISAC's objectives and policies

We want popular music to be recognized for what it has done for the image and reputation of Iceland globally and for it to be acknowledged and supported as such. We have insisted on seats in Iceland's key art communities and institutions. We have also fought for the lowering of value added tax on music related goods and for the recognition of music ownership and property ownership being treated equally when it comes to taxes.
