A large proportion of our payments are made to recipients who share them with others. We don’t have comprehensive information about all the ultimate recipients of our payments.
In 2016, we requested information from recipients of copyright fees from schools and universities about how those payments were shared. Based on the information we received, we estimated that individual (non-staff) creators received about 39% of the copyright fees distributed.
