Panels Featuring SoundExchange:
SoundExchange: Your Recording = Your Royalties
Date: Apr 28, 2016
Time: 10:55-11:25 AM
Location: Loews Hollywood Hotel, Los Feliz Room 3rd Floor
Featuring: Wade Metzler, Director, Industry Relations
Panel Description: SoundExchange's Wade Metzler will provide an easy-to-understand explanation of SoundExchange and its role in the music industry. Registering with SoundExchange (it’s free!) can earn you royalties on satellite radio, Internet radio, cable TV music channels and other services that stream sound recordings. Becoming a Member allows you to further maximize your royalties for streams around the world. SoundExchange is a non-profit and an important source of revenue for all artists (big and small) and labels (indie and major), distributing over $3.5 billion to artists and labels so far. But thousands of artists and labels don't know they need to register, and millions in royalties are unclaimed. Interactive and question-driven, this workshop will cover need-to-know information on performance royalties, copyright, licensing, metadata and legislation that will affect your career.
