Production music is a vital part of the television industry. And the songs heard in the background, during scene transitions, and in opening and closing credits can generate significant royalty payments. This is the chance to collect royalties for a catalog of production music that has generated $12,059 in the last four quarters.

Up for auction is 50% of the seller's publisher share of public performance royalties for over 800 tracks of production music. This music has been used in over 1,800 episodes of television across 200 different shows in the last three years. The catalog has seen placements on networks like VH1, MTV, E! and more.

The seller will maintain a writer's share in over 30% of the tracks, so he will continue to have a vested interest in getting placements for the catalog. Not only that, but this catalog includes tracks that are licensed by Jingle Punks, a music publisher and licensing company that will work to find new placements for this music in upcoming television programming. Also, many of the tracks continue to be available for use in the NBCUniversal database as part of the Viacom database. When new placements are found for this music, this creates new opportunities for you to collect public performance royalties!

Bid now to earn money every time an episode of Basketball Wives, or any other show, uses a song from this catalog and airs on television.

What is being sold?

50% of the seller's interest in the publisher's share of public performance royalties generated by a selection of musical works in seller's catalog of songs administered by ASCAP. See the “Financials” tab for a full track list.

How does this asset make money?

Every time a network airs a television show that uses any of the songs in this catalog the asset generates a public performance royalty. This means every time an episode of Love and Hip Hop, or any other show, uses a song from this catalog and airs on television, you earn money. ASCAP makes payments quarterly. The next ASCAP international royalties payment is scheduled for February 2017 and the domestic royalties payment is scheduled for March 2017.
