HOW TO GET PAID IN THE RECORD BUSINESS

                                                PART II

           Allen Johnston – The Music Specialist

 

 

PUBLISHING REVENUES

 

            Today the buzz word in music is publishing, everyone knows that you need to keep your own publishing, but few understand the different ways you can get paid from music you create.  There are three (3) basic ways to obtain money from your songs and several variations of each one of these ways.

 

  1. Mechanical Rights – Everytime your song is manufactured for sale you, as the writer, should receive money.  This includes the recording and reproduction of CDs, ringtones, and Internet downloads.  You must contact the Harry Fox Agency to receive this income.

 

The Harry Fox Agency, Inc
 711 Third Ave
 New York, NY 10017  (212) 370-5330

  1. Performance RoyaltiesRADIO The catch phrase here is “IF IT IS PLAYED YOU GET PAID”  Normally you are  paid for radio performances that last 90 seconds or more and the performance is the sole sound being heard.  Radio performances are paid on 4 different types of stations

COMMERCIAL RADIO - .12 cents per play

CLASSICAL RADIO  - .32 cents per play

COLLEGE RADIO  - .06 cents per play

NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO  - based on total number of songs played

       Have you ever wondered why record companies spend tons of money for radio BDS “spins”?  The answer is very simple, after your song has been performed 95,000 times on radio it then qualifies for the HIT SONG BONUS or an increase in the amount of money you can receive.  Songs that have been performed 2.5 million times and receive at least 15,000 BDS recorded performances per quarter (3 months) are considered STANDARDS and are eligible to receive an additional bonus.

 

There are additional bonus rates paid for radio performances that are featured as Radio Theme songs.

 

  1. Synchronization Rights and Royalties - A synchronization license is needed for a song to be reproduced onto a television program, film, video, commercial, radio, or even an 800 number phone message. It is called this because you are "synchronizing" the composition, as it is performed on the audio recording, to a film, TV commercial, or spoken voice-over. The synchronization royalty is paid to songwriters and publishers for use of a song used as background music for a movie, TV show, or commercial.

 

                        TELEVISION – A song you wrote played on US Television can be a significant money maker, especially if it is played more than 45 seconds and is one of these.

            FEATURE PERFORMANCE

                        VISUAL VOCAL – the vocalist is on camera doing your song

                                   

                        VISUAL INSTRUMENTALIST – the instrumentalist is on camera

 

                        BACKGROUND VOCAL – when the song can be heard even if there is dialogue going on simultaneously.

 

            BACKGROUND PERFORMANCE – When your music is used to set the mood and is not featured.

           

            THEME PERFORMANCE – Your song is the theme song for the show

 

            LOGO PERFORMANCE – Your music is played whenever the company logo is shown

 

            INFOMERCIAL PERFORMANCE

 

            PROMOTIONAL ANNOUNCEMENT PERFORMANCE

 

            COMMERCIAL JINGLE PERFORMANCE
