US/International Publishing and Licensing
Affiliation with ASCAP or BMI is a great start, but unfortunately it’s not enough. These two collection societies only collect one type of publishing royalty, called performance royalties, and they only collect for the U.S.A.
The MUSIC SPECIALIST works with collection societies all around the world – over 60 countries and counting. Most importantly, we register your songs with both performance and mechanical collection societies to collect all royalty types.
You may be famous in Australia and don’t even know it!

Performer’s Right to Public Performance Royalties
Whether you are a featured artist, session musician (including remixers), or performing producer, if any tracks that you have performed on are broadcast on the radio or played in public, subject to qualifying rules laid down by phonographic performance collection societies, you are entitled to (public performance) royalties from the broadcast plays of your recorded performances (also known as “Neighbouring Rights” outside of the UK).
Regarding US resident performers and Neighbouring Rights: Unless the performers have performed on recordings made outside the USA there are limited rights available.

Qualifying for Phonographic Performance Royalties
There are certain qualifying requirements that performers need to meet in order to qualify for these royalties. If the commercially released recording a performer performs on was made in a qualifying country or the performer was a citizen or resident of a qualifying country at the time of the recording, the performer will qualify for royalties from broadcast plays of the recorded performance.
A qualifying country is a member state of the European Union or a designated country. A designated country is one that has been designated by the UK government as enjoying reciprocal protection under UK law, by virtue of the rights performers receive in that country.)
For the avoidance of doubt this type of royalty is separate to recording and writer royalties.
