How do you make money?

We are able to claim the publishing royalties from DSPs directly, including where we do speak on behalf of the 100% share.

For example, if we are licensed only a 4% of a composition/lyrics, the DSP will pay to us the 4% to Kanjian and the remaining percentage to MCSC or accordingly to any third parties administrating the works.

When do you get paid?

We provide reports once a month and you can withdraw your revenue at any time.

We support independent artists and labels to achieve financial freedom without holding them to ransom with subscription fees and music takedowns.

The business terms for Microsync Distribution are designed to be straightforward and rightsholder-friendly, ensuring transparency and fairness in our partnership. Here are the key terms we typically include:

Fees: We operate on a revenue-sharing model. Our standard commission is 30% of the net revenue generated from each sync license your music secures. This means we only earn when you earn, aligning our interests with yours to maximize your revenue.

Non-Exclusive License: The Microsync Distribution license you grant us is non-exclusive, allowing you the flexibility to continue distributing your music through other channels simultaneously. You maintain ownership of your music and are free to explore additional revenue streams outside of our agreement.

Term and Termination: The standard contract duration is one year from the date of signing, automatically renewable unless either party opts out with a 30-day notice before the renewal date. You can terminate the agreement with a 60-day notice if you find that our services no longer meet your needs. This gives you the freedom to reassess your participation without being locked into a long-term commitment.

What do I need to do to get started with Connected Devices Distribution?2024-04-24T09:34:16+00:00

To get started with Connected Devices Distribution, you’ll need to ensure both your master and publishing rights are fully cleared for distribution. This includes securing a comprehensive license that encompasses:

Master Rights: These are the rights to the actual sound recordings of your music. You must hold the authority, either as the rights holder or through permission granted by the rights holder, to license these recordings for integration into various connected devices like smart TVs, smart speakers, and electric vehicles.

Publishing Rights: This pertains to the musical composition, lyrics, and any underlying works of your music. It is crucial that these rights are also fully managed and cleared, which requires coordination with songwriters, composers, and potentially music publishers.

By securing both sets of rights, we can streamline the distribution of your music across an extensive network of connected devices manufactured primarily in China but distributed globally. This approach not only facilitates legal compliance but also enhances your music’s accessibility on these platforms, ensuring it reaches a wider audience effectively.
