Neighboring Rights (aka Related Rights) is a royalty type payable to artists and/or labels as the owner of a Sound Recording.
Neighboring Rights refer to the right to publicly perform a Sound Recording. This is similar to, but should not be confused with performance rights, which refer to the right to publicly perform a musical composition.
This royalty type exists in several countries, but it does not exist in the US.
CD Baby does not collect Neighboring Rights at this time. Please contact your local Neighboring Rights collection society to see how you can collect this royalty type.
Take a look at this DIY Musician blog article to learn more about the different streams of revenue that can be generated by your sound recording, including Neighboring Rights.
The CD Baby Pro Publishing service was discontinued as of August 8th, 2023. Any paid release which was signed up for CD Baby Pro Publishing prior to August 8th, 2023 is considered a legacy Pro release and will continue to receive Pro Publishing services. CD Baby now offers a new expanded suite of revenue amplifiers called “CDB Boost” instead.
