Workshop featuring SoundExchange

SoundExchange: What It Is, Why It Pays and How to Get Your Share

  • Featuring: Wade Metzler, Director, Artist & Industry Relations
  • Date: Saturday, May 2, 2015
  • Time: 11:10 – 11:40am
  • Location: Laurel (2nd Floor (Mezzanine)), Loews Hollywood Hotel
  •  Workshop Description: SoundExchange’s Wade Metzler will explain what it is, why it pays and how to get your share. Registering (free!) with SoundExchange can earn you royalties on satellite radio, Internet radio, cable TV music channels and other sevices 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 over $2 billion to artists and labels so far. But thousands of artists 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 affect your career.
