Sony/ATV's Martin Bandier Repeats Warning to ASCAP, BMI

Sony/ATV's Martin Bandier Repeats Warning to ASCAP, BMI | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

Sony/ATV Music Publishing sent a letter to its songwriters in the last day, updating them on where the company stands with regards to performance rights, re-iterating Martin Bandier's intention to withdraw from the two U.S. major performing rights organizations and also reveals the news that the company is appealing both the ASCAP and BMI Pandora rate court rulings.

 

 

Pierre Priot's insight:

Sony/ATV Music Publishing is obviously willing to skip the middle men, i.e. ASCAP & BMI.

Songwriters are Under Attack by Pandora, Speak Out and Sign the Petition

Songwriters are Under Attack by Pandora, Speak Out and Sign the Petition | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it
The rights of songwriters are under attack. Pandora Media Inc., which controls 70% of the US streaming market, has launched an aggressive campaign to pay songwriters and composers less than a fair market share for their work – even as the company’s revenue and listener base has soared.
Pierre Priot's insight:

Start-ups & streaming services should dance to songwriters tunes. Not the other way around.

MizWalidah's curator insight, February 20, 2013 11:20 AM

When I was starting in the business deciding which Performance Rights Org to affiliate myself with was a matter of who catered to the independent or who favored one genre over another. ASCAP was about the big players on radio, where as BMI did better with college radio. BMI, according to some insiders, favored country, rock or pop as oppose to urban (race issues within the industry is for an entirely different post or book, rather). Now it seems technology may neutralize this strategy. Technology may allow for licensing and performance royalties to be collected directly from venue to artist, API or possibly a centralized site or app.

 

Just as Spotify has centralized P2P sharing, arguably in favor of the labels, a new start up may centralize performance licensing.  Unlike Spotify, this may be a good thing for the independent if royalties are not compromised in the shift, as they have been with Spotify. I write this with dampened hope because currently the PROs  collect say roughly 30cents for every radio play of a song where as Spotify collects a fraction of a fraction of that for every stream.
