Not all performances of a work can be logged and paid by another society. There are many reasons why performances of works abroad may not have been paid, some of which are summarised below.

  • The sale of a television series abroad does not guarantee that a broadcast will take place, or that the broadcasting channel is included in a society’s distribution. We are usually notified if a programme has been broadcast for which an affiliated society has no information.
  • Smaller radio and TV stations are less economically important to a society and so are usually sampled, using examples of their daily use their music rather than every day's playlist. This reduces the probability of your music being included in the distribution sample.
  • Most societies distribute royalties for music performed in advertising but there are exceptions. It's important for members to obtain as much information as possible at the start of the campaign from the advertising agency. Sometimes, the name of the product can change from country to country and the soundtrack re-dubbed.
