Searching the Globe to Find more of your royalties
Driven by listening trends that continue to favor music access over music ownership, neighboring rights are currently one of the music industry's quickest-growing income streams. Digital streaming royalties in the U.S, represents 16% of the entire recorded music industry's revenue. In countries that guarantee additional royalty protection for terrestrial radio, the figures are similarly high.
Resulting neighboring rights royalty collections are continually increasing, and are predicted to rise for years to come. Neighboring rights refer to the rights of the featured artists and rights owners on a recording to receive royalties when their recordings are used commercially.
Frequently Asked Questions
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.
AM I SIGNING AWAY THE RIGHTS TO ANY OF MY MATERIAL BY JOINING?
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 neighboring rights royalties deriving from airplay outside of the US.
WHAT ROYALTIES DOES RIDENT ROYALTIES ADMINISTER?
50% of neighboring rights royalties are reserved for the artists' direct claiming. This is considered a non-transferrable royalty, and cannot be collected by your label. The other 50% of neighboring rights royalties are set aside for the labels' direct claiming.
