One of the greatest obstacles music publishers face in royalty collections is proper and comprehensive registration of all their works.
Within the United States, there are several performance rights organizations (PROs), two of which (ASCAP and BMI) expressly allow publishers to register works by providing data files using Musicmark’s Electronic Batch Registration (EBR) standard.

I was working on my database of tracks when all of a sudden the editing functions stopped working. Couldn’t add or delete data. Weird. So, I closed the program, re-ran it and same problem. Weirder!
Okay, time to re-boot and see if that fixes it. Maybe some random memory collision. Hmmm, computer will not boot. It’s stuck on the Dell logo (BTW this is office computer not DAW). Shut off again wait for 30 seconds try again same deal, stuck on logo. Yikes! Hard drive failure or hardware failure? Oh great, I’m 3 days into the bug that’s going around, not feeling all that wonderful and I don’t really need this now.
Some of you may have noticed that MLR had a big spam attack. I recently loosened up the spam settings because posters who left very long post, were being sent to the moderation queue or flagged as spam. As I feared that only opened the door to a flood of spam. The main reason was that the Captcha had stopped working on the forums. That has been fixed so that should solve it. Fingers crossed. 🙂
