Welcome to the Pre-72 Sound Recording Royalty Claims Website!

If you are an owner of one or more sound recordings fixed prior to February 15, 1972 that were used in Sirius XM programming between August 1, 2009 and November 14, 2016, then you may be entitled to payment for prospective uses of your content under the license and royalty program established in connection with the class action settlement between Flo & Eddie, Inc. and Sirius XM Radio Inc.

The details of that settlement, and whether or not you are included in the class, can be found at http://www.pre1972soundrecordings.com.

This website is hosted by Music Reports to allow class members in the settlement to search the catalog of tracks used in Sirius XM programming during the settlement period and make claims on those pre-1972 sound recordings for which you own the rights.

The process is simple:

  • Go to the Search page by clicking the link below and browse the database or search by title, artist, album, or label name to see what matches from the database.
  • If you own the rights to any of those tracks, create an account in order to make claims.
  • Once you have created your account, make your claim by selecting the applicable rows and clicking the "Claim" button.
  • You can perform as many searches as you like and return to the site as often as you want. When you do, those tracks you have already claimed will be flagged and stored as "My Claims." Additional tracks may be added to the database so please be sure to check back.
  • If you make a mistake and need to unclaim something that you have previously claimed, you can do that as well on the "My Claims" page.
  • Once you have made your claims, you will receive payment for uncontested uses of your sound recordings in Sirius XM programing starting from January 1, 2018.

If you created an account on the Pre-72 Sound Recordings Settlement Fund Claims Website prior to December 31, 2017, that account and all claims you made on that site have automatically been carried over and you do not need to re-register or re-claim those tracks.

If you are a settlement class member and own or control pre-1972 sound recordings that are not in the database on this site, please submit the details of those sound recordings using this format.

If you are a settlement class member who has sold, assigned, or otherwise transferred the rights in some or all of the pre-1972 sound recordings that you claimed on this site or the Pre-72 Sound Recording Settlement Fund Claims Website, please confirm the details of that transfer using this format.
