Neighboring Rights

Neighboring rights are known as the rights that performers (e.g. musicians) and makers (e.g. record companies) have in the performance of their sound recordings. It's called a neighboring right because it is similar to but not exactly like a copyright. By comparison, the rights that Songtrust administers are known as copyrights, and they include the performance rights that songwriters, composers, authors and music publishers have in their works.
