What are airplay royalties?
When a recording is broadcast on the radio or TV in most major territories around the world, airplay royalties are generated. In each of these territories are collection societies whose mandate is to collect licence fees from the broadcasters. Once collected, these licence fees are allocated to the recordings that have received the airplay. If you are a performer who has appeared on any of these recordings or are a record company that hold the ‘public performance and broadcast’ rights in a recording, you are entitled to receive a share of this money.
