This is a good,common sense article.Very helpful to one who is just finding the resouces about this part.It will certainly help educate me


I think the biggest cecronn in having to purchase a license is does the artist or copyright owner really get paid? I think most people want the artists to get paid if even to encourage them to make more great music. I play music at church and I also perform at local clubs. At the church we are required to submit a list of the songs we play every week so the money gets to the artist who created it. I don't see how clubs, restaurants can keep track of all the songs played in there place between the radio DJ's and live music you would need to hire a full time person just to keep track of what songs were played on any given day. To me this is where the real problem lies Ascap and BMI I'm sure are taking in the money but there is no way they could pay all the artists that get played in one day. So there is the racket in this whole debate in a church situation we are only playing a hand full of songs a week. In the clubs We could give a set list to owner many nights the set list changes as we go along but then there is music played in between the sets and throughout the day before we even start who is supposed to keep track of all this. I am all for the artists being paid but don't tell us this would happen with the current system in place. Fix the system and maybe we could have a better response and willingness to support artists.

Hi , I am trying to find these cnttracos, as I am dealing directly with the TV producer of a pilot series, 1. RATE SHEET, for licensing and usage of my music in a film production. 2. Sync rights Contract. 3. Mechanical license cnttracos. Can you help me find these? I am going CRAZY on this machine, trying to find out 3 simple things. Tx Pamela


That argument doesn't fly. Playing music in a reasuartnt, club, or whatever isn't about promoting the SONGWRITERS who wrote the songs, OR the artists who recorded them. It's about promoting the reasuartnt, club, etc. Promotion is when an artist goes on David Letterman and performs their song.. .and guess what, The Letterman Show, pays royalties to ASCAP and BMI Radio airplay is also a kind of promotion.. .and you guessed it, radio stations pay royalties to these organizations, too.When you play music in your bar, reasuartnt, or store, you're using the music to create an atmosphere conducive to patrons having a good time, buying food and drink, products, etc. You have to pay for the products yous sell, the food, wine liquor you serve, the supplies used to serve it, the labor, etc., and the electricity, gas, water, etc., required to maintain the comfortable buying atmosphere. Think of the music just like the electricity, if that helps get your head around this.When you buy a CD or iTunes download, you're entitled to use the music for PERSONAL use. As soon as you cross into the COMMERCIAL space, where you're performing the music for the public, a public performance royalty is required. That's the law. If you don't like it, tell your congresspeople. The music industry isn't perfect, true.. But that's not an excuse to make unauthorized use of their products.
