Via Digital Music News, a reminder from SoundExchange that today is the day in which royalties collected three-plus years ago will be released into the service’s general royalty pool. You like money, don’t you? You can check whether or not you’re registered here.
Even if your name is not on the list, we encourage all performers on sound recordings to register, especially those who have recordings played on satellite, internet or cable radio stations.
Register by Oct. 15 as you may risk losing any royalties collected three (3) or more years ago by SoundExchange.
SoundExchange is authorized by law to release older unclaimed royalties to offset our costs and distribute proportionally to those we already pay. We have repeatedly held off on doing this, but we need your help to spread the word and get recording artists and record labels to register.
