Just the other day I counted over 5,839 names of music performers who have MONEY WAITING for them from royalties earned by digital streams of their music. Are you on the list? Click here to find out:
http://soundexchange.com/performer-owner/does-sx-have-money-for-you/ This link lists artists who earned money from digital streams of their music between 1996 and 2000. Anything released more recently isn’t listed… but there could still be royalties waiting to be collected.
Personally, having music available digitally online via Pandora, Sirius radio et all… is great, but getting the money owed to performers is equally, if not MORE important. Take a minute to look up yourself and your friends on this list. And if you’re not on the list and think that you may be owed money from digital royalties… then reach out to the collection agency, SoundExchage, via email(firstname.lastname@example.org) AND register on their website (http://soundexchange.com/performer-owner/register-update-my-info/)!
ps – remember that another critical step to getting paid digital royalties is to embed quality metadata on your CDs and music tracks http://t.co/52HjluX
