Sony/ATV Updates SCORE Royalty Portal With Access To Real-Time Data

Sony/ATV has upgraded its royalty portal SCORE, now providing writers real-time access to their current royalty account with account information that is constantly updated.

Detailed data about current earnings is available alongside an overview of historic earnings information that can be searched and organized by song title, income source, time period and territory. Another new feature, SCORECARD, has been added to the service which uses a graphic interface to offer an up-to-date, top-view summary of royalties for both current and historic periods. Through SCORECARD, writers can also access in-depth information about their earnings in specific detail.

Future plans for the system include a SCORE app, which will greatly improve the experience of using the portal on a smart phone or tablet and conveniently provide writers with current information on their devices.

“As the world’s No. 1 music publisher, Sony/ATV prides itself on providing our songwriters and their teams an unsurpassed level of transparency and service with highly detailed royalty information,” said Sony/ATV Chairman and CEO Martin Bandier. “Additionally, within the next few months we will unveil the complementary SCORE app, further providing them with an unrivaled and groundbreaking insight into both their historic and current period royalties.”

“The new changes are amazing,” added songwriter Tom Douglas. “The ability to see current earnings almost in real time is so helpful. The historical data provides a great snapshot as it relates to my royalties and I particularly love the ‘Song Summary’ tab. The creative relationship with a publisher is obviously critical, but maybe the most under-appreciated part of one’s relationship with the publisher is royalty and accounting.”
