am i signing away the rights to any of my material by joining?
Not in any way. The writers, artists, and labels keep all the rights they already have - nothing changes. Rident Royalties simply collects royalties on behalf of the artist or rights owner as an agent.
What royalties does rident royalties administer?
The royalties administered vary by country, and can be tailored to your needs. In general, Rident Royalties is able to collect non-interactive digital streaming royalties in the US (Pandora, Sirius/XM, etc.), and non-interactive digital + terrestrial streaming royalties outside of the US depending on the tracks' recording locations.
What royalties are not administered by rident royalties?
Rident Royalties does not administer royalties for most on-demand services (YouTube, Spotify, etc.) or for podcasting. At this time, Rident Royalties does not administer publishing/songwriting/composition royalties either.
In the US, and in many other countries, there are royalty streams that are due to the featured artists exclusively - labels are not able to claim these streams of royalties.
I'm an artist. Isn't my label covering this for me?
If you have been contacted by us directly, we have identified you as an artist and/or rights owner that we believe has uncollected royalties. We would like to help you collect what you are owed.
I have been contacted by rident royalties. why me?
I have not been contacted by rident royalties. is it possible that I have royalties due to me?
Absolutely! There are tens of thousands of artists and rights owners who have yet to collect the royalties they have earned. It is also possible that we have identified you as an artist and/or rights owner with uncollected royalties, and have not had the chance to reach out as of yet.
Certainly! We are able to offer our services to a client regardless of their country of residence and citizenship.
