“Neighbouring Rights” is one of those terms that can cause a lot of confusion and misunderstanding even with record company personnel
As the “Neighbouring Rights” payments were introduced in the middle of the 90s they were for many years simply ignored by many Record companies, only in the last 10 years due to the high income have they become an important part of the industry.
What are neighbouring rights they are public performance royalties due to the sound recording copyright holder.
Every song has Two Basic types of copyrights attached to it… one for the composition of the song, and one for the recording of the song.
The composition copyright pays the songwriter and publisher (GEMA, PRS Biema Stemra etc), while the sound recording copyright pays the artist that recorded the song and that of-course is the RECORD Label.
