Will Songtrust Collect for My Live Performances, or Will Those Royalties Be Sent to Me By My Performance Rights Organization (PRO)?

Songtrust collects royalties from live performances.

Live performances are a source of performance royalties. These royalties are split the same as all other royalty sources. Songtrust will collect the publisher share of the royalties you earn from submitting your setlists while your writer share of the royalties earned will come directly from your PRO. 

There is no one standardized list of requirements for submitting setlists and it can totally depend on the territory the performance took place in and that specific pay source’s requirements. You can find out how to submit your setlist by navigating to your PRO/CMO portal.  You can use our Collection Society Database to find your society’s information if you’re unsure where to start.
