Satellite Radio airplay royalties.
WHAT THIS MEANS TO YOU
Get paid when you get playedIf you are a featured recording artist or a sound recording copyright owner (SRCO), producer or creative contributor, you may have earned digital performance royalties for the use of sound recordings you own or on which you performed. Artists and SRCOs should register with SoundExchange as soon as possible, even if you’re a member of another performance rights organization, as only SoundExchange can provide digital royalties. Registration is fast and always free. Copyright holders and featured artists (generally, the most visible person, in print or image, on the physical package of a recording) are paid through SoundExchange. Session players and back-up musicians are paid from a separate royalty fund. No matter what part you played, go there to find out how to get paid.
SoundExchange is an independent, nonprofit performance rights organization.
SoundExchange is the non-profit performance rights organization that collects statutory royalties from satellite radio (such as SIRIUS XM), internet radio, cable TV music channels and similar platforms for streaming sound recordings. The Copyright Royalty Board, which is appointed by The U.S. Library of Congress, has entrusted SoundExchange as the sole entity in the United States to collect and distribute these digital performance royalties on behalf of featured recording artists, master rights owners (like record labels), and independent artists who record and own their masters.
