A Brief Fact for Mechanical Royalties (US standard)

 

Mechanical royalties (Also known as 'Publishing royalties') stands for money earned per copy sold at industry standard rate (statutory rate).

 

Statutory rate (changes every 2 years in the United States):

Before 1976 2 cents per song
2000 1.32 cents per minute or fraction thereof. / Average for 4 minute song - 6.6 cents.
2003 1.55 cents per minute or fraction thereof. / Average for 4 minute song - 8 cents.
2004 - 2005 1.65 cents per minute or fraction thereof. / Average for 4 minute song - 8.5 cents.
2006 1.75 cents per minute or fraction thereof. / Average for 4 minute song - 9.1 cents.
2009 - present 1.75 cents per minute or fraction thereof for a song longer than 5 minutes / A song 5 minutes or less - 9.1 cents.

 

Rate (by Law) only applies to songs that have been recorded and released at least once. If a song has not been released, the publisher can charge whatever rate he/she chooses.
