What is a collection society?

Collection societies collect royalties on behalf of artists and songwriters. There are 3 main types of collection societies in each country:
  1. Performing Rights Organisation
  2. Mechanical Rights Organisation
  3. Neighboring Rights Organisation
Each type of society is responsible for collecting and distributing royalties to artists and songwriters. Visit the links below for up to date lists of active collection societies in your country. Join one today to start earning royalties on any music that you have released to the public.
