Neighbouring Rights Collection

Collect Your Performance Royalties Internationally


Collect your neighboring rights revenues from Public Broadcasting, Public Performances and Online Media usage of your music. If the recordings that you own are being broadcasted in public, then you are generating neighboring rights royalties and Kanjian can help you tap into those sources.


We collect your Neighboring Rights revenues in Mainland China. As of June 1st 2021, China passed a new legislation recognising the value of neighboring rights. Kanjian Music has secured a deal with CAVCA, the national body for the administration and collection of such rights, to ensure new revenue opportunities for its partners in Mainland China.


Despite the breakthrough, it is important to stress that due to the dynamics of the Chinese music industry, certain collection criteria greatly differ from the Western practice: in fact, audio files are a mandatory requirement for the administration and collection of Neighboring Rights as well as the metadata required are more specific

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.
