Subject: CBC Royalties - How Much?

I've been informed that a song I co-wrote is likely to be played on CBC. CBC pays royalties automatically, it seems and if I want to receive them, I think I have to join ASCAP or BMI (I'm in the US). I would like to know if the effort will be worth it. Does anybody know how much songwriter royalties are per play on CBC? I'm just happy that it's getting played, but some money would be nice too.

I think it's worth it jeffp. I was involved in a situation like that several years ago and one of the co-writers who is a BMI member extracted a fair bit of change from the CBC. The money arrived rather quickly so it may have come from CBC directly.

I have a friend who told me a couple of weeks ago that they pay
25$Can per play.
I can not specifically verify that though.

Does it count as a new "play" each time a show is aired through the day in each time zone?

Please report to us on how it all pans out - I've had some stuff played on Mother Corp. (or so I've been told), but I never thought about royalties or payment of any kind. Not that I'm on a higher spiritual plane than anyone else; I'm just not much of a businessman.

I think in Canada you may have to join Socan to get the royalaties.

Join SOCAN. It's free to join, and they indeed collect royalties on your behalf. Get your co-writer to join also.

A SOCAN member.
