Why entrust the management of your American royalties to Artisti?

For the past few years, Artisti has been making constant efforts to make tangible improvements to the collection process of your US SoundExchange royalties.

In addition to successive reductions in management fees, since 2020 Artisti has implemented monthly distributions of SoundExchange royalties (for its members registered for direct deposit), and established more direct communication with this society.

Here are the other advantages when you entrust us with the management of your American royalties: 

Management fees that directly fund the defense of your rights as performers in Canada.

Indeed, the management fees that you pay to Artisti allow it to make government representations to protect your rights. Through the management fees you pay to Artisti, you are in solidary with your fellow performers in the music sector.

Bilingual personalized service, proximity to your management society, as well as responsiveness in case of problems with your royalties.

For many members, being able to be served in their own language and benefiting from the strength that a collecting society rooted in their community can offer, is advantageous. Artisti is an effective transmission belt and, since it has a department specifically dedicated to SoundExchange royalties, it can thus answer your questions and initiate the actions necessary for the collection of your missing royalties on your behalf, without you having to follow up with SoundExchange

A one-stop shop for managing your rights as performers, allowing you to centralize your administrative and tax procedures.

By entrusting all the territories to a single collective management society, you avoid having to declare your repertoire to different societies and follow up with them. In addition, you receive a single tax statement issued by Artisti, which lists the Canadian and foreign royalties you have received during the year, which simplifies the management of your royalty portfolio.
