Can You Collect Royalties From Podcasts?

Not quite yet.

Podcasts do not currently generate performance and/or mechanical royalties. Show creators typically pay a flat upfront fee to license your music instead.

Other than this one-time fee, there are no additional publishing royalties generated from the streaming or downloading of podcasts at this point. This may change down the line though, as the popularity of podcasts continues to grow alongside the need for original music.

If you're a Songtrust client with any other questions related to podcasts, or help with handling license requests, please use our Support Form to submit a ticket and reach our Client Services Team. You can find this form by logging into your account and finding the link on your client dashboard.
