Neighbouring rights are public performance royalties due to the sound recording copyright holder. Remember, every song has two basic types of copyright attached to it... one for the composition of the song, and one for the recording of the song. The composition copyright pays the songwriter and publisher, while the sound recording copyright pays the artist that recorded the song and record label.
