A: Like all companies, Muserk has a finite amount of resources. Ideally we would accept all applicants, however we want to ensure that our efforts are dedicated to those who would receive meaningful benefits from this service.
A: Publishing: If you wrote a song, you are entitled to the royalties generated from the underlying composition. This means that even when someone else uploads their own recording of your music, a percentage of the revenue generated is allocated to you, as the songwriter.
Sound Recording: This is the royalty that you receive when someone streams the specific sound recording that you created. If you currently distribute music to YouTube using another service, you should check to see that they are not already performing this service for you.
Entertainment: This is for non-music content that you own- the most common forms of media are a web series, TV show, comedy special, or movie.
A: Two quarterly royalty distributions, along with usage reports and access to the Muserk Publishing Dashboard (if you opt into the publishing collection service).
A: We collect on behalf of many collection societies around the world. Knowing this helps us determine whether or not your publishing royalties are already being accounted for by us on YouTube in the United States.
A: Absolutely not. We are simply utilizing the technology we've built to offer those affected bythe restrictions due to COVID-19 the chance to recoup some funds in the digital space in the form of royalties. Our services are normally limited to large publishers, labels, and rights societies, but we feel this is an important time to extend our rights management service to the backbone of the industry that is being damaged so heavily by the restrictions caused by COVID-19. The service will be provided free of charge and last until the end of 2020.
