music royalties

added every month

When music gets played, it generates a royalty.

However not all royalties get paid to the artists, songwriters or the correct rights owner due to identification issues.

When rights owners are unidentified, the unpaid royalties are held for a period of time before being dispersed back into the industry.

Of the music industry's $26bn royalties revenue, $2.5bn is held in royalty black boxes.

In most cases, rights owners are unaware their catalog has unpaid royalties.
