“MONEY TALKS: STRATEGIES FOR MAXIMIZING COLLECTION OF MUSIC ROYALTIES

PRESENTED BY THE CALIFORNIA COPYRIGHT CONFERENCE 

Did you know that anywhere from 20–50% of music payments do not make it to rights holders? So said a 2015 study estimate from Berklee College of Music. How can you ensure you are collecting all the money to which you are entitled? Our panel of experts shares their insight on major income streams:

  • How royalties are earned and paid out,
  • Reviewing statements and identifying missing income,
  • Common problems that prevent rights holders from collecting and how to fix them. 

Areas covered include, PROs, mechanical income, streaming, neighboring rights, black box income, and where and how to check for unclaimed and unmatched income.
