I live in Ireland and am therefore with the Irish PRO called IMRO. Almost all my music gets licensed from the USA. So imagine this, Finnish tv show uses a song of mine which is with a US publisher. The cue sheet goes from Finland to the US PRO I had nominated/and I assume the publisher. My royalties then eventually get sent from the US PRO to the Irish PRO. They process it (not sure how fast lol) and eventually, usually about 2 years later, I get paid.

I have never yet been paid royalties in the same year a show aired, apart from an Irish language soap opera that used a couple songs, which took 9 months to get to me :roll: The norm for foreign royalties to reach me is about 2 years.

And I think that 9 months limit from your PRO sounds like piffle. My PRO has tracked down missing payments from a show aired in the US 3 years later.

Onwards and upwards as they say :)

Quite a circuitous journey on your international placements and royalties! It sounds like the process works well in your case. Regarding not going back further than 9 months to look for royalties, unfortunately that policy is spelled out onthe PRO website. But, as you say, onward and upward! :)

I tracked down and contacted the company owner (ghosthunterpat@gmail.com) and asked her to send the cue sheet to my PRO (I tried sending it directly to my PRO, but they said it had to come from the production company). My PRO person said she'd "reach out" to foreign distributors about past royalties for the last 9 months, which is apparently the limit they will look for. But, as you say, we should get Amazon royalties that started in May 2018. I plan to follow up re: the foreign royalty situation soon.

Hey Janet, that's great how you've tracked it down. If the PRO never received a cue sheet, then I'm not sure how royalties would find us from Amazon, but I'll keep my fingers crossed that connections will be made eventually :) I don't quite understand the "9 months" look back limit, when we're often told it can take 2 years for foreign royalties to appear in the first place. By the time we know it's missing, it's too late to follow-up :roll:

Oh well, my next statement will be in a couple weeks, you never know what might be there

Jim

Exactly. I also don't understand the 9 month retroactive limit if it takes up to 2 years for foreign royalties to appear!
