Royalties from television makeup 87% of the last 12 months earnings. Music used in the show American Pickers has recently become the largest source of revenue — generating 87% of the royalties in 2017, and 29% historically. The popular History Channel show is in its 18th season, and previous seasons and episodes are often rerun. In fact, over 20 episodes are scheduled to air in the next week! This is good news for you because you will earn money every time an episode airs that uses a song in this catalog.
In addition to production music, this catalog includes rock music by the bands Kuroma and The Whigs. In the financial charts, you’ll see a large spike in earnings in Q2 2016. This is from Kuroma’s song “20+ Centuries” which was licensed for use in a Taco Bell commercial. The commercial generated a large amount of income in that quarter, and earnings from “20+ Centuries” make of 49% of the catalog’s historical income.
Music Libraries. Production music is a vital part of the TV and radio industry and the music in this catalog is available for use in the HAUS TV music library. Brands and production houses often turn to production music libraries, like HAUS TV, to find music more efficiently and cost effective than licensing commercial music. If additional placements are found for this music, you will earn royalties without having to do any of the work!

About the Royalty Distributor
ASCAP is the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers. It is a membership association of more than 575,000 composers, songwriters, lyricists and music publishers of every kind of music. ASCAP also represents music creators worldwide through agreements with affiliated international societies.
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.
