A performance rights royalty is paid to a songwriter on a live performance of a song, radio spins, concerts, and etc. Although a live performance of a song can be literally a live performance like a concert a live performance can also be a public playing of a recorded song, like a radio play.These royalties are collected by performance rights society, such as the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP) or Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI), which monitor media for live performances of songs. These groups issue licenses that allow a business to host live performances of all of the songs that they represent, and then they distribute the licensing fees among their songwriter and publisher members depending on how frequently that writer's/publishers song was used. Don't just make music, get paid for it with radio play, concerts, placements, and more.
