Neighboring Rights calls attention to the rights of performers including musicians (vocalists) & all makers of sound recordings (record labels), to fair remuneration for the broadcast & public performance of their works.
We handle the numerous administrative formalities ensuring all criteria are met for all territories which are key to successfully collecting your Neighboring Rights i.e. application forms, discography and filmography updates and declarations, mandate conflict resolutions and continuous monitoring of all aspects related to your royalty collection.
Direct registration and collection from each Collective Management Organization (CMO) company ensures transparency and eliminates any intermediary commissions. We cross-reference media playlists, accurately implement all metadata, and audit each distribution to maximize our clients' revenue.
We rely on our experience, expertise and innovative proprietary technology as well as solid relationships with CMO representatives and our clients resulting in world renowned quality service.
All of our Artists have the option of consulting their detailed statements including originals from the source via our online Artist portal. Our commission is a fixed, predetermined percentage levied only on the collected fees without any additional costs.

Premier has consistently demonstrated their uncanny ability to locate and collect neighboring rights royalties where other companies have failed. Furthermore, and equally as important, Premier , its principals and staff are honest, ethical, and extremely professional in all of their business dealings and especially with payments and accounting.
