I'm sorry you don't know what a royalty fee is. Maybe you should look it up before you try to sound intelligent and troll my posts.
LMAO. No, you're not. You're just ticked because someone called you out on your usage of royalty fees which BTW has nothing to do with copyright. A royalty fee is a payment made for the usage of a Patent. Two entirely different items, there, champ.
Well songs arent patented are they?

Why do artists get paid royalties when a tv commercial uses thier song?

Bzzt. Nope. Copyrighted. That's what the little "C" with the circle means after the title.

Because the word "royalty" has been used and abused ad nauseum by writers who didn't bother to determine what the definition of the word actually was before they used it.
