April 2021 distribution

  • Commercial Radio 2019/20 Year End Reconciliation: If you’ve previously received PRS or MCPS royalties from Commercial Radio usage, paid between April 2020 to December 2020, you may receive a top-up.
  • UKTV 2017 to 2019 top-up: If you’ve previously received PRS or MCPS royalties for UKTV stations then you may receive a top-up.
  • 2017 download ‘residuals’: These are payments for music downloads (mainly from services like Apple iTunes, Google Play Download, and Amazon Download). This is revenue that we have previously held for any payments we’ve been unable to match to registered works. This will show on your statement as ‘2017 Download Residuals’ rather than referencing individual download services.
  • SoundCloud 2007 to 2015 settlement: The third and final instalment of the settlement agreed with SoundCloud for the period 2007 to 2015. This follows similar payments made in 2016 and 2018. 
  • Scripps for Q1 2019 to Q3 2020 – this was originally due to be paid from July 2019.
  • Google GEOL for Q1 2019 to Q2 2020 – this was originally due to be paid from October 2019.
  • Virgin GEOL for Q1 & Q2 2020 – this was originally due to be paid from October 2020.
  • DJ Events for Q3 2020 – this was originally due to be paid in December 2020.
  • Sports Stadiums for Q4 2019 to Q1 2020 – this was originally due to be paid from December 2020. 
  • Licensing discussions are ongoing for both Disney+ and Apple TV (General Entertainment Online Licence – GEOL), which means we are unable to pay Apple TV (GEOL) Download and Rental for Q1 to Q3 2020 and Disney+ Q2 & Q3 2020. We're aiming to include these payments, where possible, in the October 2021 main distribution.
  • Disney Audio Visual (AV) Q4 2020 – We’re unable to pay these broadcast TV royalties as we have not yet received the necessary usage data to enable a distribution.
  • Film, Online and General & Broadcast 2020 royalties from SIAE (Italian collecting society) – Data has been processed, however, there is an issue on withholding tax which is causing delays to payment while this is resolved.
  • Public performance – We’re unable to pay royalties for Cinemas for Q3 & Q4 2020. This is because so little of this usage took place over this period due to the measures to control the pandemic. We have a minimal licence fee to distribute as well as very limited data of what music, if any, was used. Future payments for this music use will largely depend on measures to restrict the spread of COVID-19 over the next six months.

We’re aiming to include these payments, where possible, in the July 2021 main distribution.
