Are you (the artist) being paid what you’re owed?


Here is an excellent summary by George Howard of what my feeling has been for quite some time, i.e. that the PROs (e.g. ASCAP, BMI, SEASAC) withhold information from the artists – i.e. those, they claim to represent and have anything but transparent collection and distribution methods. I highly welcome tunecore being the spearhead in yet another revolution: The efficient direct handling of licensing and performance rights negotations on a (roughly) one-on-one basis! I’ve been waiting for someone to come up with this and I’ve always thought that tunecore.com would be the ideal candidate, amongst others for reasons of existing infrastructure coupled with business acumen and experienced individuals making the company. In a nutshell: This is <strong><em>great</em></strong> news!
