Collect royalties generated by this collection of electronic dance music as well as production tracks used in TV shows.
The highest-earning source in the last 12 months is TV, with 32% of income. These earnings derive from music used in the Emmy-nominated animated series American Dad. Four songs included in this offering are placed in a single episode — “Standard Deviation” — in Season 13 of the series. The catalog also boasts strong international income in the last year, thanks to EDM’s global appeal.
The top-earning EDM track is the 2017 release “Limitless” from Billboard-charting producer Sam F. and pop vocalist Sophie Rose. “Limitless” broke into the Top 10 of Billboard’s Dance Airplay weekly charts, peaking at No. 9.
Other notable tracks include “Clout 9” from LGBTQ-advocate LIL PHAG featuring Bella Thorne, Dr. Woke, and Tana Mongeau, along with “All We Got” from Sam F. featuring Lizzy Land. “All We Got” was also used in an episode of the MTV series Siesta Key.
TV/Film Placements. This catalog benefits from placements in TV/Film, contributing 42% of this catalog's historical earnings. Four songs are included in an episode (“Standard Deviation”) of the popular animated TV series American Dad.
The episode debuted in 2016, but thanks to the series’ popularity and continued interest, past episodes (and new seasons) are airing on TBS. American Dad is also available on streaming platforms including Hulu and Amazon Prime. Every time “Standard Deviation” airs on TV or is streamed on-demand, as the winning bidder, you’ll earn a public performance royalty.
Electronic Dance Music & Streaming. According to BuzzAngle’s 2018 Music Report, as a genre, nearly 88% of EDM listeners tune in on on-demand streaming platforms. In the last 12 months, this collection earned 28% of its income from streaming platforms and these earnings are on the rise.
According to 2018 IMS Business Report, the EDM (electronic dance music) industry is currently valued at $7.4 billion and could be worth nearly $9 billion by 2021. In fact, EDM as a genre is beginning to blend into mainstream culture, with crossover hits appearing in both pop and R&B categories. As the once-underground genre becomes more deeply embedded in mainstream culture, crossover tracks bridge the gap between genres.
Public performance royalties are payments made by radio stations, hotels, restaurants, night clubs, etc. to the composition copyright holder(s) for each public performance of the copyrighted work. In the U.S., public performance royalties are typically paid to performing rights organizations (e.g., ASCAP, BMI) who then distribute the royalties to the copyright holder(s).
Mechanical royalties are royalties deriving from per-unit payments made by recording companies or digital download providers to the composition copyright holder(s) for every purchase of a sound recording that reproduces the copyrighted composition.
Non-interactive digital performance royalties are payments made by non-interactive music services (i.e. those that mimic the experience of a radio broadcast) of a statutorily-set amount (on either a per-play or annual basis—depending on the type of service) to SoundExchange for the benefit of the sound recording copyright holder and the performing artists for the right to perform the copyrighted sound recording via non-interactive, digital means.
non-interactive digital performance royalties
The royalties owed to the creator(s) of a musical composition which are paid in return for the right to reproduce, distribute, or perform the copyrighted work.
A musical composition is one of the two copyrightable parts of a recorded song. It consists of the song's music, including any accompanying words, (i.e. the portion of a song that is capable of being fully expressed as sheet music) and is separate from any particular recording of the song or its performance by any particular artist.
A sound recording is one of the two copyrightable portions of a recorded song. It results from the fixation of a series of musical, spoken, or other sounds in a tangible (at least momentarily permanent) medium.
The portion of royalties owed to the owner of a sound recording. The owner may the performing artist, the producer, or another party (such as a record label) who contractually acquired the ownership of the copyrighted work (e.g., through a recording agreement), owns it by virtue of an employer-employee relationship with the creator(s) of the work, or specially commissioned the work.
rights owner's share
The portion of royalties owed to the performers of a sound recording in return for the right to perform the copyrighted work via non-interactive, digital services (e.g., Pandora, Spotify).
The portion of royalties owed to the music publisher which are paid in return for the right to reproduce, distribute, or perform a copyrighted musical composition, arising from a contractual obligation (i.e. a publishing agreement) or employer-employee relationship with the creator of composition (i.e. the songwriter(s)).
If an asset requires splitting up a catalog by works or percentages, Royalty Exchange may need to provide royalty accounting services to the buyer, seller, or both. This is because the royalty distributor may not be able to split royalties as intended by the asset transfer. Royalty Exchange's involvement helps to ensure accurate royalty payments. It also helps assure buyers and sellers that they are not missing out on potential earnings.
The accounting process often involves manual spreadsheet work and coordinating with royalty distributors. Royalty Exchange's goal is for the accounting service to be temporary. We plan to work with distributors to find solutions that will allow us to revert accounting and payment obligations back to the distributor, removing ourselves from the process. In the meantime, we've instituted the 5% fee to help offset costs in the manual accounting.
Please see the sample accounting agreement document for reference.
