You have royalties waiting to be collected. Let us get them for you.
If your music is being distributed, performed worldwide, and you don’t have a publishing deal, your royalties are sitting in collection societies around the world waiting to be claimed by you. The problem is that in order to collect these royalties, you need direct relationships with each society in each territory. Doing this takes time, paperwork, and a lot of upfront fees. Worst of all, if you don’t register in time to collect your royalties, the collection societies will retain the royalties and you will miss out on additional revenue.

Who is collecting your royalties?
In order to receive your songwriter/publisher royalties around the world (a royalty separate from the distribution royalties you already receive through KINAY Global) you would need to sign up with over 100 societies and notify dozens of digital service providers. This would cost you thousands of dollars in sign up fees and require you to fill out paper registration forms for each entity (often in different languages).
With our service and partnership with Songtrust, you pay a one-time signup fee, we will retain 15% of the royalties earned, but other than that, no additional fees will be charged. Your songs are electronically registered with all societies and partners worldwide within two weeks. You as a songwriter/artist should spend your time creating, not pushing paper. We distribute for you and now we can administer your copyrights as well!
Since we already receive sales reporting/accounting for your distribution sales money, we can use that existing data to ensure you receive the proper songwriter royalties for mechanicals. The same song IDs used to distribute your releases to partners are also used to track and report royalties owed to the songwriter, so we automatically have an audit trail of how much money you are owed as a songwriter. No other service in the world provides efficient royalty tracking like us!
