Learn More About How We Help
Q: How is ClearBox Global better than the traditional licensing and collection of digital rights and why is this so important to independent publishers?
The old model for licensing and collecting digital royalties outside North America is through the local or regional entities in that territory. For instance, one DSP across Europe might need to license and pay royalties to thirty or more different local entities. That is fragmented and inefficient. ClearBox Global takes a direct and transparent approach to licensing and collection with the DSP for all of Europe, simplifying the process through one license and one royalty stream. Our approach is more efficient in the licensing, matching, and delivery of royalties, ultimately increasing the value of your music.
Q: What makes ClearBox Global superior?
Through our direct licenses and streamlined technology, ClearBox Global offers lower fees than other alternatives, and faster, transparent delivery of royalties. With SOCAN’s consolidated data and proven matching capabilities, we optimize your royalties through increased identification of your works, and then analyze the earnings to correct discrepancies. All of our expertise, data, and proficiency is North American based to better represent Anglo-American repertoires.
Q: How do I join ClearBox Global, and what are the first steps?
Simply verify that your rights in territories outside the United States and Canada are available for licensing through ClearBox Global, execute the ClearBox Global administration agreement for the territories you would like us to represent, and provide your song and related data to us, and then you are on your way to faster, more accurate and more transparent royalties.

Q: What is “Anglo-American repertoire”?
Anglo-American repertoire simply means the musical works created by writers who are members of one of the Anglo-American societies, which are APRA, ASCAP, BMI, GMR, IMRO, PRS, SAMRO, SESAC, and SOCAN. While the musical compositions themselves are not necessarily English language, the writers are affiliated with one of these English speaking societies.
