Sound Exchange is a collection society that collects digital performance royalties for master recording owners (i.e. record labels and performing artists, as opposed to publishers and songwriters). These royalties are called “neighboring rights” royalties in nations outside of the U.S. This has nothing to do with the business of music publishing. However, the good news is that Symphonic does collect from SoundExchange as well for our affiliated record label and artist clients. In order to collect royalties from Sound Exchange and other societies collecting neighboring rights royalties, apply to sign up for our Neighboring Rights Administration service.
