How Long is My Term with Songtrust?

Songtrust has a one year term - here's why.

Songtrust offers the most flexible and writer-friendly deal available: a one-year minimum term. Why one year? The initial global song registration process can take anywhere from 6-9 months, with royalty distribution occurring the following quarter. Once your songs are registered in your Songtrust account with all the necessary information (titles, correct splits, ISRC codes), we register them with multiple pay sources around the world. Once the songs are sent out, we are at the mercy of how quickly these pay sources can affiliate writers, register the songs, and release your royalties.

After the initial 1 year, your term auto-renews without any additional fees, so you don't have to do anything to continue collecting your publishing royalties through Songtrust.

We also have an extensive explanation of our terms of service on our sign up page here. Just click 'terms of service' at the bottom.
