How much is paid in royalties?

How much money is distributed each year depends on the sum of payments collected from music users.

Payments to a single creator depend on how much a song has been played and on the creator’s share of compensation for the work. Creators of music agree together on how compensation for a song will be split between its creators.

The amount of royalties collected through radio and television is influenced, among other factors, by the productivity of the performance channel, the length of the performance, and the number of performances.

The compensation in a transaction is determined, among other factors, by the size of the performance venue, the number of ticket sales, and the number of audience members in a free event. A venue’s size means its maximum audience capacity.

You’ll receive copyright royalties when your music is performed in public. Report your own works and the cover songs you have performed, in the performance notification. You can send us reports using our online service or the Keikkamobiilii app.
