Soundexchange...

"... is a nonprofit performance rights organization jointly controlled by artists and sound recording copyright owners through an 18-member board of directors with nine artist representatives and nine copyright owner representatives. We have been designated by the U.S. Copyright Office to collect and distribute statutory royalties to sound recording copyright owners and featured and nonfeatured artists."

They are also a bunch of lazy venal pigfuckers too slack to inform the artists whose royalties they've collected that they are in fact owed money. And many of these artists are in bands we listen to. AND it appears that this money isn't available to them past December 15.

You know there isn't much money in metal. A lot of guys in bands work second jobs and have families. Music is their life, but their hobbies like EATING and BUYING STUFF mean cutting a few corners. The fact they are owed money from an organisation too lazy to give it to them is fucking GALLING.

Take a look at this list.

Just in 'A', I managed to find Alabama Thunderpussy, Amorphis, Annihilator and Agnostic Front. They've all got emails from me in the last few minutes, which I sincerely hope they answer.



SO. If you can bear to traverse their piece-of-badly-coded-shit website, find a few more bands and make yourself useful instead of masturbating yourself reckless to dwarf porn all day.

Wow, what a bunch of cunts. I`ll scan through that list and try to mail the bands I recognise. Hell, I might just alert some bands I`ve never even heard of too, they do desverve to be aware of this.

I have no idea how much money is owed. I tried signing up for an account, but they never sent a confirmation email. Guess I should have included an address that wasn't 69 Gropecunt Lane.

Hm. You sure this isn't just some misunderstanding of, or lack of sufficent interest in, the agreement between the specific company and the artist - by the artists?

No.

I'm leaping to conclusions, as usual.

Found this today.

Cut the punch line jat, I'm honestly a bit dubious. It says that Soundexchange is the single organisation for this kind of royalty, and that they've done a mediocre job at finding the various artists, but I still don't have a clue as how hard it has been to find Soundexchange for anyone truly interested in what happens to their music in the digital arena; or how much SE has done to simply show the world "hey, we exist". Whatever the answers to that, they will in all likelyhood not go very far as to excusing SE's lack of tenacity in their task. However, maybe a muscian or two might take a lesson from this and adhere to one of the mainstay principles of, for example, my humble household economy:
IF YOU DON'T WANT TO GET SEVERLY FUCKED AND FINANCIALLY MAULED BY THE TAX AUTHORITY, TAKE SOME FUCKING INTEREST IN YOUR BLOODY TAXES

Again, here's the list.

Emailing bands on it is more useful than, say, reading what Transient just wrote.

Wow, in 'D' they have 'DIMEBAG DARREL'. I wonder why they can't find him

Now im pissed because they fucked him over and he'll never recieve justice... but I don't exactly understand the logistics of this operation. To my understanding it is a royalties organisation that has failed to pay right?
why exactly can't the artists take them to court? Is there a slip in the contract or something?

Anyhow, Amadeus presented a good point at the top of this page.

Umm, I see April Wine on there and I know they're still performing. I'd be surprised they're not on top of this. There's people on there that I don't remember being recording artists, but stars.Anna Marie Alberghetti, for one. And some of those oldies like the Ames Brothers have been dead for years now.
There's a lot of oldies I recognize on there.
