It is important to note that international earnings can often be reported to distributors with limited detail. These international earnings often include income from radio, streaming platforms, and TV/Film.

Production Library. Production music is a vital part of the TV & radio industry. In fact, Production Music Association's Joe Saba called it a "$1 billion global industry hidden in plain sight." Right now, demand for music in TV shows, films, & commercials is tremendous. To meet their needs for all these uses, brands and production house often turn to production music libraries to find music more efficiently and cost effective than licensing commercial music.
