I have had an interesting email from Les Hurdle, the legendary session bass guitarist, as follows: -

"I can only hope all PRO people read this and act accordingly as well as Performer Right orgs.

Please note   "The proposed new rules (below) would require that Reports of Use submitted by services relying on the statutory royalty contain "full census reporting" of all songs played by any service."

Now how about full payment for same ?

Why not include all audio visual product?

Who is dropping the ball re musicians support re old AV and 'new'
media [globally]?" [endquote from Les]

Report follows (alas I cannot get the link I have been sent to work):


http://www.broadcastlawblog.com/archives/internet-radio-copyright-royalty-board-proposes-full-census-reporting-for-services-paying-royalties-to-soundexchange.html

Excerpt:
"Today, the Copyright Royalty Board announced a Notice of Proposed
Rulemaking that would change the reporting requirements for services that pay royalties for the use of sound recordings to SoundExchange. The proposed new rules would require that Reports of Use submitted by services relying on the statutory royalty contain "full census reporting" of all songs played by any service. Services would include all users of music who pay royalties due under Sections 112 or 114 of the Copyright Act -
including Internet Radio, satellite radio, digital cable radio, digitally transmitted business establishment services, and radio-like services delivered by other digital means, including deliveries to cell phones."

here's a Blicky
to make it easier

I gotta admit...I have been getting some nice royalty checks via SoundExchange. For the first time in my career I am actually getting paid for digital broadcast of my music.

It's not enough to pay the mortgage, but it has been enough to pay my car insurance and a couple of tanks of gas each month.
