In this guide, add all gross revenue (money earned), by revenue source, for this song during this reporting period and we will calculate the total amount of royalties you need to pay to Tracklib. If you missed reporting some revenue for this song in the previous period, add that here also.
If you haven't received any gross revenue for this period, press “Report no income”.
If your license fee was recoupable, the total amount earned must reach the same amount as your license fee before you should start paying royalties to Tracklib.
Adding revenue sources
If you have received several different revenue sources of the same type, add them separately. You might, for example, sell both CDs and vinyls.
Always report gross revenue in the currency you received it. Tracklib automatically converts the amount to the currency you're using on the service.
These five different revenue sources can be selected here:
Revenue earned from digital streams or digital sales. For example, revenue generated from streams on Spotify as paid to your digital distribution service. You should report all gross revenue that your digital distributor has received in your account for your songs here.
- General licensing
Revenue earned from specific licensing deals for your new song.
- Neighboring rights
Neighboring rights are a form of copyright linked to commercially released recordings and generate revenue when a record is played on radio, TV or performed in public. You should report the full gross revenue you have received for your song here. Neighboring rights revenue is not recoupable.
Gross revenue you have generated when selling physical albums or singles, such as CDs or vinyl. Since it's net revenue, you should report the income after costs, such as printing vinyl albums.
Any gross revenue your song has generated from synchronization (sync) of your song with some kind of visual media output (film, television shows, advertisements, video games, website music, movie trailers, etc.). Synchronization revenue is not recoupable.
Any income that does not fit within the categories above.
