It's A Mystery: Music Royalties – Almost Hiding In Plain Sight

While we are distracted by a dazzling array of bright, shiny objects in the music business these days, few people may be aware of the huge amount of royalties that may be sitting out there for them practically right under their very noses. It may not be as sexy as megabucks catalog deals or NFT’s, but you won’t have to sell your soul to get these monies. And they’re yours practically just for the asking, if you know how to follow the clues and avoid the red herrings. Our panel of industry experts will talk about neighboring rights (SoundExchange can be your friend…so can PPL), social media ad revenue, escheated royalties, audits (including the regular kind and their little cousin of the desktop variety), income tracking, PRO/MLC registration, royalty suspense files at the labels & publishers, sub-publishing deals, and much, much more.
