How To Collect This Fast-Growing Source of Revenue
With Bruce Lampcov, Dan Millington and Joseph Rust
on Tuesday, November 18, 2014
This little-known stream of royalty payments can be significant,
especially as U.S. music companies and their artists come to better
understand the value in neighboring rights to their bottom line. Neighboring rights revenue has increased over 50% in the last five years to over $1.5 billion. Until recently, neighboring rights royalties were deemed insignificant, but today they can make up as much as 15% of top line revenue. Plus, there are no direct costs associated with this revenue.
Our experts will explain where and how they exist and outline how to collect and verify them.
You will learn:
- Who qualifies to collect?
- The importance of nationality, country of recording, publication or release
- Main territories for neighboring rights income
- Main sources of neighboring rights income
- How monies are collected and distributed
- Income to labels and performers: who gets what
- Can neighboring rights be assigned, licensed or transferred?
- Issues for U.S. artists and how to collect
