|Helping Songwriters & Lyricists Succeed in the Music Industry
Royalties are how songwriters and
lyric writers get paid. When songs
are sold, downloaded or played in
public, Rights Organizations collect
licensing fees from retailers that sold
the song, and the radio stations, and
public venues where the song was
played or performed. The Rights
organizations then pay a licensing
fee to music publishers, who then
pay the songwriters and lyricists.
Songwriters and lyricists can collect
songwriting royalties for many years,
from just one hit song - even one that
achieves modest success.
1. Performance Royalties are earned
when a song is played/performed in
public, such as radio, TV, or a concert.
2. Mechanical Royalties are earned
when a recorded version of a song is
sold in any form,such as CD.
3. Printed Edition Royalties are
earned when a printed version of a
song is sold, such as sheet music.
4. Foreign Royalties are earned when
music publishers collect rights fees
for songs played overseas.
