    I have a curiosity issue here: my recent GEMA quarterly notifies me of Amazon sales of tracks which are only on my website. Now I do not sell my music on Amazon, never licensed these tracks to them or anybody else and am not selling anything on Amazon, how can I find out who sells my music on Amazon? Smells like another CA suit to me πŸ˜‰

    I have had a similar issue…check one of the libraries you may have placed music with . They may well have licensed some of your music …also on Spotify. I did a simple search by asking alexa about one of my tracks called paper lantern….it played and I found I was on a compilation album of ambient tracks..

    If you are on Audiosparx, that could be the source.

    I am not on audiosparx and the specific tracks are on no other library than my own. It’s not only about the ridiculous amounts apple/amazon pay but its a general issue IMHO. These tracks were never licensed to anybody. The only way these tracks could have gone to amazon is by recording them from the online stream. I don’t want to put voiceovers on my 350 tracks on my website but now I understand why other libs do it πŸ™‚

    Btw…Great Piano playing Johnnyboy!! πŸ™‚

    That’s strange ORPM. You would think if someone was stealing your music, they’d change the titles. Makes me wonder if my music is safe for streaming only. Thanks for the appreciation of my track.

    It seems odd that someone would steal your music and then make sure that Amazon and GEMA had the information necessary to pay you. Do you sell your music through any non-library sources like CD Baby, Level, or SoundCloud/SoundRain?

    Have you actually seen your music for sale on Amazon? In a best case scenario, Alexa is directing traffic to your site and you’re getting paid for those streams.

    This was the piece we did for the animation film for Paper Lantern. It is quite short. Hope you might give it a view.. best wishes Phil. At Tunesmithy studios here in Whitby.
