If you’ve played your original song live, received radio play or had a few streams on Spotify – you will have performance royalties that are waiting to be collected!

Performance Royalties are a form of Publishing Royalty that are generated through the play of a composition rather than a sound recording.

Whether a composition is a performance on TV, broadcast on the radio, a background playlist streamed at a restaurant, a jukebox in a waiting room or a live performance. If you hear music when you’re out and about, it’s generating royalties to collect.

You also earn performance royalties on Non-Interactive Streaming from in-streaming radio services such as Pandora Radio/SiriusXM where you do not have a choice on what you play next.

As well as Interactive Streaming where you listen to whatever you like through services such as Spotify/Deezer/Apple Music.

Do I need to be signed up to a PRO to collect these royalties?

You can collect these royalties through a Music Publisher (like RouteNote Publishing), however they will only be able to collect 50% of these royalties – a PRO will hold on to the remaining 50% for you to go and collect yourself.

To make sure all your royalties are being collected, we would always recommend artists to sign up to their affiliated PRO.
