What happens to my unclaimed royalties being held at SoundExchange if they are never claimed?

After three years, SoundExchange releases any unclaimed royalties into the sunset, which basically means that money gets scooped up by the major labels and top-selling artists.

We don’t want your royalties getting paid to some major label that had nothing to do with the creation of your tracks, so if you haven’t registered directly with SoundExchange, we’ll collect the label portion of your digital performance royalties.
