It is strange, geographically speaking, how far can the Cuban music go. The Cuban Agency Copyright Musical (ACDAM) told OnCuba that the main countries reporting profits for Cuba by the use of national songs are Germany, Netherlands, Japan, Australia, Finland, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Greece, Norway, Austria and Italy.
The gross revenues from the use of Cuban musical works in 2013 were 37 million pesos between the two currencies (national and convertible pesos). Europe reported the largest amounts in 2013, while in Latin America were Brazil, Argentina and Chile.
Cuba maintains more than 150 Reciprocal Representation Agreements, plus about 90 of Execution and about 60 mechanical reproductions with 93 international companies and 178 countries.
