AMCOS collects income from a number of sources, the major ones being record companies, television stations, Screenrights, digital music service providers, mobile ringtone service providers, video makers, schools and dance schools, and anyone who reproduces music for their business or pleasure. In many cases, the licence is on a pay per use basis, with the money being allocated directly to the copyright owner. Where a blanket licence is issued, for example to a television station, a revenue pool is created for each licensee or group of licensees.
