Collective Rights Management
Earn fees and royalties for copyright licensing
Collecting fees on behalf of your publication
Collective rights management is the licensing of copyright and related rights by organisations which act on behalf of the rights owner.
Copyright and related rights owners can include authors, composers, publishers, writers, musicians, photographers, broadcasters and other visual creators.
Though this does not fall under content syndication, where no physical content assets are involved, collective rights management still represents an opportunity to generate royalties from your content. In fact, fees or royalties are collected and paid out based on the copying, usage or reproduction of the copyrighted content.
SyndiGate is a member of the Press Database and Licensing Network (PDLN).
SyndiGate collects and pays fees based on the copying, usage or reproduction of your content from the following worldwide licensee types:
- Media Monitoring Organisations (MMOs)
- Schools and universities
License fees explained
Licensees are charged an annual fee and Media Monitoring Organisations (MMOs) also have to pay a set fee for every link or clipping they send to a client. Licensing is voluntary, but there are dedicated sales teams in place all over the world, selling licences to MMOs, governments, corporations, schools and universities.
