The royalty rate subject to each licensed song will be %50 of the songs earnings beyond 1 million streams or views.

At that point Songbird Road Studios will register its part of the ownership of the song with BMI and Sony Music Publishing in order to begin collecting royalties from the music created by Vherdey (Rudolph Peyrani) the music producer. All Royalties will be collected thru BMI and other agency's not yet named and each artist gives permission for a full audit of the songs earnings once per year. The Royalty rate is determined by the ownership of the music which is Songbird Road Studios, and makes up %50 of the ownership of each song. 

If the client has a desire to be the sole owner of any beat it will be negotiated in a case by case basis, and at a price that both will agree upon.
