Use of your Rights-managed licensed material in broadcast, cable or certain Internet transmissions, or other public exhibitions or performances, may entitle you to certain performance royalty payments from your respective performing rights organization (PRO), such as ASCAP, BMI or SESAC, if you are a member. We administer the publishing share of the performance royalties that arise from licenses we’ve issued, of which we will pay you 50%. You will receive 100% of the writer’s share directly from your PRO.
