The 1,700 member-strong Israel Association of Composers, Authors and Publishers of Musical Works (ACUM) was founded in 1936. Membership of ACUM confers copyright protection and collective arrangements authorising the use of works, collection of royalties for such use and legal advice. ACUM candidates must be artists in the domains of literature and music, whose works have been used on a public basis. Members pay no membership dues. The association is bound by reciprocal agreements with most of its counterpart associations worldwide, representing them in Israel. ACUM is affiliated with CISAC, the International Confederation of Societies of Composers and Authors (see p XX). It organises an annual prize-awarding competition and provides current information to its members.
