This month, the Recording & Broadcasting (R&B) department has distributed £424k to both members and non-members.
This is one of the MU’s biggest ever distributions, made up of BBC Dubbing (use of commercial music as background audio) and Video Performance Licensing with subsequent payments for use of promo videos. The R&B team also licenses performances of non-featured artists on commercial recordings, and therefore reguarly make monthly distributions regarding this too.
From January 2022, a total of £730k in royalty payments has so far been distributed by the team.
