At this time, Stem pulls out the statutory Mechanical Royalty from digital download sales in the U.S. (we even pay them to your publisher for you!).
If you are self-published (meaning you have not signed a publishing deal or a publishing administration deal), we are happy to pull out this royalty and pay you your publishing earnings directly.
If you have a publisher (meaning you have signed a publishing deal or a publishing administration deal), we will capture your publisher's name & contact information in the MANAGE CONTENT or ACCEPT SPLITS flow so that we can pay them your Mechanical Royalties directly. Your publisher is responsible for claiming & collecting publishing earnings on YouTube for you.
