    I just got a “Notice of Compulsory License for Making /Distributing Phonorecords” from the Harry Fox Agency in the mail today on a piece of music I wrote years ago. Spotify is named the licensee, Phonorecord deliveries limited to permanent digital downloads, my name as copyright owner of course and it’s signed by the Spotify officer.
    I’ve never gotten anything like this but it looks like the song will be steaming. I don’t even know where they got the song.
    Any money to be made here?

    “Streaming” not “steaming” oops! 🙂

    With Spotify you’re talking a low $.005 per stream, at best. I have a dozen albums on there and am slowly, very slowly, seeing my revenue increase. I have 3 tracks on playlists that are getting several hundred streams per day; one just hit 11,000 streams. My revenue comes in thru CD Baby… I’m making, hmm, maybe $10-$15/month now. Pandora is doing much better for me.

    Thanks for the info daveydad! Yeah,I googled around a bit and found pretty much what you stated and while every little bit helps, there’s definitely nothing to get excited about here especially over one song.

    Yeah, only those who get tens of thousands of streams make much.

    My payments from streaming have, so far, been ‘steaming’

    That’s ok. Spotify never crossed my mind until I got this notice that an artist wanted included a song I wrote. Other than that, I shoved the notice in my drawer and on with my day. If I happen to get a few bucks great.If not, there was no effort on my part so it doesn’t really matter.

    Today, I received another Harry Fox “Notice of Intention to Obtain a Compulsory License for Making /Distributing Phonorecords”. Licensee is Spotify. The Label Name is Haley Shaw (okay).The Recording Artist is listed as Haley Shaw. No, I’m the correct Recording Artist. Anybody know anything about Haley Shaw? She seems to have an online presence as a composer. Thanks.

    What I found was interesting. I found the “artist” from my HF notice on the website with the title of my song indicated in the notice BUT but actual music was different. Somethings mixed up there.

    Thanks, Pat. Good to know. I’ll email HF again and see if I can figure this out.

    I forgot to mention that I got a second notice on a different song and different music company.When I went to their site it was all in Chinese I believe. The translator was only able to translate enough to know it’s possibly a new music site which lists clients it has. Couldn’t find the actual song because of the language barrier.
