ROYALTIES/COPYRIGHT

ROYALTIES:


DISCLAIMER:  Registration with a Performance Rights Organization (PRO) is not required to compete in the SvS, and if you already are...you may bypass this message. MSL is not responsible for PRO registrations, however, we want to ensure we educate you on the benefits. 


Every time your song plays on an FM radio station and/or digital playlist such as Spotify, as a songwriter, you are paid a "Mechanical Royalty". If your song is not registered with a Performance Rights Organization (PRO) for example, BMI, and is played on an FM radio station, your song will not be paid a royalty. If your song is not registered with SoundExchange, the sole organization designated to collect and distribute digital royalties, and your song is streamed on Spotify, you will not be paid a royalty. Music performance royalties are the #1 revenue stream for most artists, and millions of dollars in royalties are missed every year because artists are not educated on the importance of registering their songs with the proper channels to be paid.

A Copyright is a type of intellectual property that protects original works of authorship as soon as an author fixes the work in a tangible form of expression. Technically, everyone is a copyright owner, and this is because once you create original work and fix it, for example, recording a new song, that artist would be considered the author and owner. However, it is not required to be paid a royalty. However, if you're a songwriter, we recommend you protect your works. Copyrights are not required to compete in this competition.
