Performance Royalties for Commercials

Many advertisers who commission original music for their commercials don’t realize that royalties can be collected when that commercial is broadcast or know the best way to go about retrieving that money. Revenue on heavily played commercials can be very significant – in some cases to the tune of off-setting part of the production costs.

Successful royalty collection takes a lot of experience, thorough analysis of distribution statements, regular contact with the U.S. Performing Rights Organizations (PROs) and staying up to date with new technologies in pursuit of every available avenue to get our clients the maximum return on their music assets.

The TEAM Companies music experts harvest the maximum performance income by:

  • Timely and accurate song registrations along with submission of complete performance data
  • Sending ASCAP, BMI and SESAC newly listed Numerator information
  • Detailed auditing of royalty distribution statements
  • Prompt and thorough follow-up to address discrepancies or missing payments
  • Turnaround of royalty income within 21 days of distribution
  • Keeping clients informed about changing technology, business practices and eligibility for payment requirements through active memberships with the California Copyright Association, the Association of Music Producers and the Production Music Association
