Thanks!
Composers I work with are always getting big checks for neighboring rights. Mainly from Brazil. The largest I've heard about in the last couple years was a little over $80,000 for one song placement. a fair number of the composers I know get around $20,000 to $40,000 when they get a big placement in brazil...and that is SEPARATE from the PRO royalties. That is just for the Neighboring Rights.

If you need an organization to collect your neighboring rights worldwide, I have a great one. PM me and I can send you their info. There are no neighboring rights collection organizations here in the US since the US broadcasters do not pay it. I believe internet radio now pays neighboring rights and Sound Exchange collects and pays them for artists/performers in the US. But for traditional broadcast there aren't any in the US.
