SoundExchange: What It Is & How to Get Your Share

SoundExchange will explain how registering (free!) with them can earn you royalties for plays on satellite radio, Internet radio, cable TV music channels and other services that stream sound recordings. SoundExchange is a non-profit, and an important source of revenue for all recording artists (big and small) and record labels (indie and major): they've distributed over $1.5 billion to artists and labels so far. Come learn about what you need to do to make sure you’re getting what you’ve earned. Interactive and question-driven, this workshop will also cover need-to-know info on copyright, licensing, metadata, and legislation that will affect your career.
