Owning song rights entitles you to royalties which are paid out each time the song is played or reproduced.

I read your emails pretty religiously. Your issue on investing in tax liens is one of my absolute favorites. Great coverage for an otherwise totally grey area that seems to have little mindshare within the broader REI community.
