Do You Collect Synchronization Royalties?

It depends on when the sync occurred.

Songtrust can only track sync placements that occur within our agreement. That means we are unable to track royalties for any sync that licensed or aired before you signed up with Songtrust.

We don't take exclusive sync rights, so our clients are free to procure licenses as they see fit, and keep 100% of any upfront fees they negotiate. Any royalties generated from the use would be considered performance or mechanical, and we would be able to collect all of those on your behalf and distribute them to you in your quarterly royalty statement. 

If you would like to submit a synchronization that took place within your agreement, you can submit details via our Support Form.
