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


Standard Terms & Conditions

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 subscription services
    (YouTube Music & YouTube Music Premium)
This is mainly an automated process, but you may make manual claims as shown below.

NOTE : We can only accept claims for a minimum of 2,000 "plays" per song / track, of which 1000 must have been accrued within one quarter.
After your initial claim we will automatically monitor activity for you.
(Multiple links to the same song / track may be included)
Lower claims will not be accepted.
You must ensure that all videos are marked "Published by Maori Music" where possible.
Due to the very high volume of streams and the relatively low value per stream it is not cost effective to make distributions for every single video played.
Typically only videos with over a thousand streams per quarter will qualify for distribution.
After a year the number of streams that have fallen below the quarterly threshold will be collated.
The PRS may use their discretion to lower the threshold in order to distribute for as many videos as possible.
