Up for auction is an international pop catalog featuring recognizable artists Big Time Rush, P!nk, Backstreet Boys, and more. This catalog earns from mechanical, performance, and sync royalty streams. As the winner of this auction, you can receive income in multiple ways from dozens of artists.

This includes boy-band sensations Big Time Rush whose success sparked a self-titled scripted TV series, which currently ranks as one of Nickelodeon’s longest-running live action TV series. Contributing to 65% of this catalog’s earnings in the last 12 months is the track “Worldwide,” which shows impressive growth at 44%. This listing also features multiple hits from the band’s platinum album Elevate, including “Love Me Love Me” and “You Are Not Alone.” Collectively.hese tracks contribute to over 11% of this catalog’s historic earnings.

This collection also includes notable tracks, “It’s Christmas Time Again,” from Jessica Simpson’s 2010 RIAA certified Gold Rejoyce: The Christmas Album and Australian pop-artist Jessica Mauboy’s hit track “Run.” Collectively, the works account for 8% and of this catalog’s earnings in the last 12 months.

Finally, the popular P!nk track “Fingers” is included. Released in 2006 on P!nk’s deluxe-edition fourth-studio album, “Fingers” remains the only bonus track ever performed by the artist in concert. A live version of the work performed at Wembley Stadium appears on the tours subsequent DVD release.


Income Mix. The winner of this auction can receive income from three different royalty streams:

  • Mechanical: Royalties paid to songwriters and artists when music is sold (think CD or vinyl) but also when music is streamed (streaming mechanicals) “on-demand” (like Spotify).

  • Performance: Royalties paid to songwriters when music is performed publicly. Music played over the radio, in a restaurant or bar, or over a service like Spotify or Pandora is considered a public performance.

    • Nearly a quarter of this catalog’s earnings come from public performance royalties — with 20% of last year’s income coming from this source.

  • Synchronization: Royalties paid to songwriters and publishers for the licensing of a song in music for a movie, TV show, or commercial.
