If you are a musician or vocalist who has performed on a sound recording released during the last 50 years, MROC may have money for you!
The Musicians’ Rights Organization Canada (MROC) was founded on September 31, 2009 as a federally incorporated not-for-profit organization that distributes neighbouring rights and private copying royalties to musicians and vocalists. MROC takes over the role played by AFM Canada’s Musicians’ Neighbouring Rights Royalties (MNRR) since 1998.
MROC pays musicians neighbouring rights royalties related to the broadcast and public performance of their sound recordings. This includes royalties from commercial radio, CBC radio, XM/Sirius and businesses such as fitness clubs and retail stores. MROC also distributes private copying royalties collected from the importers of blank media CD-Rs.
This is an additional stream of royalties to the one that SOCAN pays songwriters and music publishers. If you are a songwriter and a musician, you need to register with both SOCAN and MROC.
MROC is the only collective in Canada for musicians governed by musicians.
