Neighbouring Rights Collection

Collect Your Performance Royalties Internationally

Start Now


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
