Distribution categories

How much money you receive from STIM depends on factors including where your music has been played. This is shown on your royalty document divided into various Distribution Categories.

The distribution categories are indicated by a number and name in the document's introductory summary, with a total amount for each category. The number is also given by each "Original title/Version title” in the "Roy. Cat." column.

An "Original title/Version title" may receive money from several distribution categories. These categories are specified in rising numerical order.

Read more about each distribution category via the links below. Before each heading we list what number the distribution category has in the STIM statement.
