Royalty Fees for Internet Broadcasters

Any internet broadcaster streaming licensed music to users in the United States, must get licensed by all three Performance Right Organizations, BMI, ASCAP and SESAC.

In addition, a recording performance license is required from SoundExchange.

To sum it all up, you must be licensed by BMI, ASCAP, SESAC and SoundExchange to legally broadcast online through your website or  your mobile app.

As an example a startup station with no revenue and minimal yearly impressions will still have to pay an upfront fee of $1399 to get licensed by all 4 entities above. Your upfront fee will be used as credit for your fees incurred throughout the year. Additional fees may be due based on your revenue and number of impressions.

Please see the fee schedule below in order to estimate your royalty fees for 2016
