Royalty Collection Services

Mechanical Royalty Claims

You may be due royalties if you've ever been featured on a cover disc or a compilation album or if your music has been officially released on CD, Vinyl, DVD, VHS or even Cassette

All Foreign Claims

If you've ever played "live" outside of the UK, or your music has been broadcast on Foreign Radio / TV stations then you've probably earned royalties from this

PPL / Neighbouring Rights Claims

We automatically claim for any due Neighbouring Rights on music released through Confidential Records or your own label by registering your recordings with the PPL in the UK and collecting any royalties generated on your behalf

YouTube Claims



YouTube is a source of long-term revenue and is the largest music streaming platform in the World.
Maori Music ensures that you're collecting the maximum amount of income from YouTube by recovering money due from all YouTube Videos that feature your music.

These can include :

  • Official music videos
  • Lyric videos
  • Fan-created videos
  • Vlogs
  • "Live" performance videos
  • "Stills" videos using music as a soundtrack
  • Corporate videos using your music on the soundtrack
  • Third-Party videos using your music on the soundtrack
  • YouTube Music
  • YouTube Music Premium
  • PLEASE NOTE : In order to maximise returns from this source, it is important that you ensure that all official videos featuring your music have credits similar to the following in the "Description" section for each of your videos:-

    Song Title
    Written By Songwriter/s Name/s
    Performed By Band / Act Name
    Published By Maori Music (PRS : 159804347)

    YouTube Content ID Scheme

    Whilst returns from YouTube videos are largely automated, you may request that we register the music used in your official video/s for YouTube Content ID as shown below.
    Content ID is a digital fingerprinting system developed by Google which is used to easily identify and manage copyrighted content on YouTube.
    This may well also identify your own YouTube Channel's official videos.
    YouTube Content ID is administered by our agents, Songtradr.

    Videos uploaded to YouTube are compared against audio and video files registered with Content ID by Maori Music and our specialist partner SongTradr, looking for any matches and we ensure that every video containing your music is properly detected, claimed and monetised on your behalf.
    When this happens, the video gets a Content ID claim and if it is an authorised, monetised, video you'll earn royalties accordingly.

    YouTube's requirement is that their monetisation service is exclusive, which means that you should only consider opting in music that is not currently represented in the YouTube Content ID system by another administrative party such as your Record Label etc.
