Register your works and upload your audio
In order to pay royalties to composers or publishers of music used in advertisements - including commissioned jingles, general works and production music (hereby referred to as jingles) - we need to know when the work has been broadcast.
In the past, all television and radio plays were self-reported. This is no longer the case. Following extensive industry consultation with our Jingle Advisory Group, we now use music recognition technology to track plays in major metropolitan areas.
That means you MUST register your works and upload audio files to our Online Portal for Uploading Songs (OPUS) to get paid.
This new, permanent system has been implemented to ensure accurate reporting and flow of royalties, and is the ONLY way we track plays in the following major metropolitan areas:
- Australian TV and Radio: Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide & Perth
- New Zealand Radio: Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington
- New Zealand TV: Auckland
If your jingles are only played in regional areas and NOT broadcast in any of the metropolitan areas listed above, you will still need to self-report.
