SoundExchange Artist/Labels Workshop 

  • Featuring: Sean Glover, Senior Manager, Industry Relations
  • Date: Monday, June 22, 2015
  • Time: TBA
  • Location: Room TBA, The New Yorker Hotel
  • Workshop Description: SoundExchange will explain what it is, why it pays, and how to get your share. Registering (free!) with SoundExchange can earn you royalties for plays 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): they’ve distributed more than $2 BILLION to artists and labels so far. But thousands of art-ists and labels don’t know they need to register, and millions in royalties haven’t yet been claimed. Interactive and question-driven, this workshop will also cover need-to-know info on copyright, licensing, metadata, and legislation that will af-fect your career.
