rights
Explanation:
It's easy to forget that 'rights' can not only mean 'your entitlement', but also 'that to which you are entitled' — "you may be paid rights for the use of your material" (cf. the Performing Rights Society in the UK)

Note of course the related terms 'dues' and 'royalties' (and there are others...) — which exact term you need depends on what the wider context is, which you haven't told us.
