Some digital stores have reached agreements in each country where they operate with the local rights management societies (such as SGAE or AGEDI in Spain) and have to satisfy a quota for digital canon (also known as Mechanical Rights) to the companies of management of those countries according to the law in each country and then each management company has to pay the author (SGAE) or producer (AGEDI) their respective rights.
With all the detailed sales information that we provide you, you can demand that the SGAE or AGEDI liquidate your corresponding rights for each of these transactions. It is very likely that they do not want to give you more information and that they tell you that they do not use this information, but you must demand that they settle you for each of the transactions. The more pressure we put together, the sooner we can break the wall of opacity that reigns in management companies.
