What MROC Can Do For You
If you have performed on recordings that have released to the public, you may be entitled to receive royalties. MROC pays revenue to performers when those recordings are played on the radio and in public places. MROC also pays performers their share of the private copying levy.
If you are a songwriter you may already be collecting royalties from SOCAN, but SOCAN doesn’t pay performers – only songwriters. When you are the performer but not the songwriter, you are entitled only to performer royalties. When you are both the songwriter and the performer, you are entitled to both kinds of royalties. That is where MROC gets involved. We pay royalties to performers.
Even if it has been several years since your recording was played, MROC can go back to 1998 to see if there are royalties due you.
