Benefits of joining R.A.A.P.

  • R.A.A.P. collects and administers performance royalties in Ireland and around the world on your behalf. Our aim is to ensure that you as a member receive any airplay royalties that are due to you.
  • International Collections - We make an annual claim to each foreign performer society that we have a bilateral agreement with on behalf of all of our members.
  • R.A.A.P. members receive 100% of their foreign income, in contrast to contracts entered into with agents who typically charge a fee between 15%-25% and tie artists into 3 and 4 year contracts.
  • Membership is free - Apart from our operational costs, we distribute 100% of the money we collect to our members.
  • R.A.A.P. is a not-for-profit company, run by performers for performers, our Board of Directors.
  • As a member of R.A.A.P. you are free to resign at any time.
  • Royalties are back-dated by 3 years.
  • Unidentified tracks are retained for up to 3 years.
  • R.A.A.P. members do not have to claim annually; once you have become a member we will continue to collect your royalties until resignation is given.
