Music Producers: You’re often the underdog in the royalty fight. Although the Recording Academy’s Producers & Engineers Wing is pushing for an amendment to the U.S. Copyright Act that would provide an allocation of non-interactive digital streaming royalties (SoundExchange royalties) to producers, no laws currently stipulate that you must receive sound recording royalties from your work when Pandora, SiriusXM, Music Choice, Slacker, iHeart Radio, or any of the other 2,500 digital services perform music that you produced (however, producers can receive publishing income if you’re a “writer” on the song).
So, what’s the solution? How do you make more money from your works when retail record sales royalties are becoming a myth?
