As a music composer and/or a lyricist, you own copyright on all the musical works you created alone or with other people.
By commercially exploiting your musical works, and because of your copyright, digital platforms like Spotify, Apple Music and Youtube need to pay you royalties.
The mandate you gave to Bridger covers the collection of all generated copyright royalties on your musical works commercially exploited by the digital service providers around the world.
This mandate doesn’t cover the collection of the royalties generated by your master rights (rights related to the sound recordings of your musical works). They are collected by your digital distributor like Distrokid, CD Baby or TuneCore.
