Are you owed money for playing on a record that you don’t know about? That’s what the topic of my latest podcast is about.
My guests today are PR and marketing manager Brian Stewart and Chief Operating Officer Shari Hoffman from the AFM SAG-AFTRA Intellectual Property Rights Distribution Fund.
The fund distributes over $60 million in royalties annually to union and non-union musicians and background vocalists who have performed on songs that appear on satellite radio, subscription services, digital downloads, webcasting, and other digital formats.
It’s currently on the lookout for the many musicians and vocalists who have money owed to them, but aren’t aware of it, and they’ll tell you how to find out if you have any unexpected dough coming your way.
On the intro I’ll talk about the 2 big music markets that are still selling CDs like crazy, and why the major labels are suddenly into hi-res music again.
