Royalties from Sales

Royalties from sales are royalties paid by the record company to the recording artist based on sales from their record. These royalties are typically based on a percentage of sales from the record, 10% for example. The calculations used for determining royalties from sales can be quite complex and are a negotiated as part of the artist's overall recording contract with the record company.
