    music in podcasts?

    Hey guys,

    I'm somewhat new to musical score in podcasts and am wondering if composers can make any royalties on music used.

    Thanks

    From what I understand, there is a small annual fee paid by your PRO.

    Most podcasts from non-broadcasting corporations tend to use podsafe music:

    There isn't any royalty inherent in podcasts. A podcast is just an MP3 file. I don't know why there's a special word for it, because that is literally all it is. The difficulty in figuring out a proper royalty for a podcast is that you don't even know what it's going to be used for... some podcasts are created and simply streamed, others are syndicated on radio shows (actual radio or internet radio), others are download-only, or some combination of the three. Additionally, it's basically impossible to track # of streams or downloads across all media.

    In short, I wouldn't bank on royalties at all. If you're getting paid to begin with, be happy, 99% of podcasts have no money.
