What happens to any Copydan funds that are not paid to rightsholders?

It is the Academy’s responsibility to take all reasonable endeavours to contact the rightsholders who are due royalties payments in order to ensure their royalties are paid to them. We report details of these efforts back to Copydan; if after three years we are unable to contact the recipients then funds due to them become non-distributable revenue which the Academy is only entitled to then use on activity which will serve the general best interest of songwriters and composers in the UK.
