« Back to FAQs I arranged a Public Domain classical work. Will I get paid for its performance?
Arrangements are not eligible for the Live Classical distribution at BMI because they are not original works. BMI defines a classical work as: an original work written for live classical performance by a classical performer or ensemble and being performed under a classical license. Arrangements are, however, eligible for royalties from all other sources. Therefore, please register arrangements by selecting “all other genres” at the beginning of the work registration process.
