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.

For any other questions related to podcasts, or help with handling license requests, please email or contact us via our Client Services form.
