Scripps Networks – BMI Performance Royalties

I just got off the phone with my contact at BMI and the word is that last week they finalized their settlement with the Scripps Networks. For those of you who don’t know, Scripps has not been paying performance royalties but that is about to change. BMI is collecting cue sheets and music use documents to pay everyone, payment is retroactive. If you have had music running on Scripps then you should be letting BMI know the shows you have been on even though, theoretically, they will pick them up from the cue sheets and other docs.

My contact said they should start distributing funds 3rd (but most likely) 4th quarter this year (2010). I’m not the official word for BMI just passing on the info from my source. It’s best to contact your BMI rep.
