Our experience gives us a vast knowledge base in copyright registration and royalty collection, we know how to get the job done and done right. Accuracy and know how are key to maximizing your catalogue’s income.
With over 20 memberships to collecting societies around the world we have access to those databases and get paid directly. In the areas where direct membership is not available we have trusted sub-publishers who have been working with us for years.
Our multicultural staff and consultants are fluent in English, Spanish, Italian, German, Swedish, Japanese and French, making it easy for us to connect with people all over the world, resolve issues and increase opportunities.
Direct society membership has three major benefits for you: one, cutting out the middle man allows for fewer commissions and more money collected; two, payments are received 1-2 quarters faster; three, we have access to society databases and regularly perform audits to ensure correct song registration (incorrect registration means royalties are not distributed).
In keeping our overhead low those savings are passed on to you.
Always at the ready to answer questions, track down funds or explore new ideas, our primary goals are to make sure you get the answers you need and to work towards adding value to your catalogue.
No outside ties, Bluewater has only your interests at heart.
Our headquarters are in Nashville, TN where all songs are registered and all statements are received and processed. Call or stop by, we want to help.
Bluewater actively audits record labels, resulting in more income for our clients. We take on all the upfront risk and only recoup audit costs when/if funds are found.
More accurate contracts and faster payments is why we do all domestic licensing in house and issue them directly to the interested parties.
We use Common Works Registration (CWR) electronic filing, the most efficient and reliable way to accurately register your songs with collection societies around the world. Bluewater is the only Nashville based administrator to use this system.
You receive statements quarterly so you can notify us quickly of any omissions or changes needed to your song registrations.
