How does The Ivors Academy identify rightsholders who are due Copydan royalties?

Alongside the funds, Copydan provides The Ivors Academy with a breakdown of royalties due to rightsholders; sometimes this information specifies for which work/s, sometimes only the rightsholder. We cross-reference this information against various databases – primarily our own membership database and PRS for Music’s database – as well as wider desk research if required to identify rightsholders, contact them and confirm the correct bank account information to send funds to. We do this regularly throughout the year so that if there are any rightsholders we were unable to contact initially, we have subsequent effort and attempts to contact them and ensure their royalties are received.
