Arts has shared a few articles on Facebook, maybe he can post the links here.
Yes, I post a many articles about copyright issues, blockchain and the music companies getting into this as well various other articles of interest. You can friend me on FB or follow the MLR page on FB. It’s https://www.facebook.com/musiclibraryreport/ also Twitter https://twitter.com/musiclibraryrptJuly 13, 2018 at 7:55 pm #30468
MichaelL – thanks. I’ll check that out.
Art – Some of us don’t do FB, Twitter or other social media….
I suppose you can call me unsociable if you like. 🙂
I’d still like to get a copy to any specific blockchain links though.July 14, 2018 at 7:40 am #30473Art MunsonKeymaster
Hey LAwriter Google is your friend. 🙂 Just Google “blockchain technology music” and you will find a ton of stories on the subject.

Thanks. I do know how to use google. : ) I just didn’t know exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for the link!July 15, 2018 at 6:17 am #30476cyberk91Participant
Art…LAwriter…..thanks for saying what I was thinking…lol….there’s no doubt about it..If I was a lot younger I probably wouldn’t be able to write in a lot of the genres of music there are today with any kind of passion or experience without having been exposed to a lot of different music over the decades…I’ll go out on a limb and ask…could blockchain actually be a good technology? IMHO instead of the Jurassic system we got in place now with PRO’s….I mean I hear the horror stories about cue sheets not filed and such….how much money have artist’s lost by the PRO’s unaccountability…..am I off base?
here’s a link I thought was informative……http://www.wired.co.uk/article/blockchain-disrupting-music-myceliaJuly 15, 2018 at 9:57 am #30477
Thanks for the link. Very informative.
I would think this is a step in the right direction, although those in power always seem to be able to arm wrestle tech to suit their needs and pocketbooks before the general public can get on board.
One thing is for certain, the next 20 years is going to look nothing like the last 20.July 15, 2018 at 2:53 pm #30479MichaelLParticipant

Or the 20 before that! 😀January 30, 2019 at 11:52 am #31567Dan WGuest
I sell sound effects an music on a non-exclusive basis. I was confused about which road to take as well, which is why I created a numbers experiment, tracking non-exclusive sales from various companies and calculating what the hypothetical amount would have been if sold exclusively. It started with one year, but I’ve been doing it for a couple years now. The result so far always turns out to be more profitable on a non-exclusive contract.
The market keeps evolving though For example, AJ now allows authors to adjust the price of their products like P5 always has. That changes the numbers from the original calculation. Libraries are also offering more licensing options now too, like single-use or multi-use.
