Understanding copyright royalties
On each musical work you create, alone or with other people, you own a copyright. To define this concept, consider that you own the right to authorize the public performance and the mechanical or digital reproduction of your musical works.
Good news is that this authorization can be monetized. Indeed, without your permission, Spotify, Apple, Amazon, and the other DSPs cannot broadcast your musical works on their platforms. It would be an infringement of the copyright laws.
The mandate you sign with Bridger acts like this: in your name, we negotiate with each digital service provider the proportional value of this authorization for commercial exploitation of your musical works, and we collect the royalties generated by it.
