Important Member Notice: Repertoire Submission Deadlines for Public Performance Royalties

January 1, 2019

This message is to inform members of CONNECT Music Licensing that Re:Sound has published a distribution schedule that includes very important deadlines determining whether your recordings can receive public performance royalties for particular tariff years.
If you do not register your repertoire by the submission deadlines listed below, that repertoire will not be eligible to receive royalties for the corresponding “Royalty Years.”
Please note that the next upcoming repertoire submission deadline is September 1, 2019. If you hold the rights to sound recordings and do not register them before this date, those recordings will not be eligible to receive royalties for the royalty years 1998-2008. To check the repertoire you currently have registered with CONNECT and/or add new repertoire, log in to your CONNECT web portal account and navigate to the “Repertoire” tab along the top menu.
It is also important to note that beyond registration, additional factors will determine whether a recording is eligible to receive royalties including airplay received and criteria set out in the Canadian Copyright Act.

Below is the repertoire submission schedule for makers as it appears on Re:Sound’s website.
