Why have my overseas claims been rejected?
Your overseas claim may have been rejected for any of the following reasons:
For many channels, it's not cost-effective to list everything they've played, so they provide a representative sample to the society which licenses them. Unfortunately, your work may not have been included in that sample.
Sometimes when a programme is sold internationally, the original music may not be included in the deal. However, if you have more evidence of music use, such as fingerprinting reports or original licence deal terms, get in touch and we may be able to investigate further. You will need to log in before raising a query.
Works not found
Our local society partner may not have found your music. Often, broadcasters change their schedule at the last minute, but they may have also just reported incorrect data. We may be able to challenge this if you have the data source the claim was based on. Log in and raise a query to get in touch.
