    Just a note to say I’m happy… my latest BMI payout (May 2022) is higher than all payouts combined from Jan 2021 to Feb 2022 (6 payouts).

    I was just about reaching the point of frustration (too much effort not enough returns)… this is a much needed boost in morale! 🙂

    Thanks to all here at MLR and best of luck!

    Glad to hear that MM_Musicworks. Only the 19th here so hasn’t hit the U.S. yet.

    Awesome!! Congrats!!!

    Payout here was the lowest in a couple of years. Mediocre, but not horrible.

    Got our BMI Statement this morning. Mediocre would be my word also. The most startling placement was for a song I co-wrote in 1978 showing up on The Today Show on NBC. Go figure.

    I was pleased and earned about what I expected.

    Happy to see these networks HGTV, YES, VICE, NBA TV, MOTOR TREND, Bally Sports pay royalties.

    The Streaming services HULU, NETFLIX, PEACOCK, AMAZON still love to pay us pennies, but I did notice a few line items where the pay was in the $10 to $50 range. THE VOICE show being one that pays a lot more.

    TV Promos were underwhelming in terms of what they paid. I had a track on a flagship network promo campaign in the Fall of 2021 for CNN and was paid “NADA” ….nothing. Will have to follow up on that as it aired on every commerical break on CNN for about 2 months straight. I guess someone was not in the mood to file promo logs at CNN? Ridiculous! I have an orchestral track behind their ad with all their stars: Anderon Cooper, Chris Cuomo, Don Lemon, Erin Burnett…etc. promoting how great of a network they are yet I do not get a fecking royalty??? My track aired on Prime time TV 7 PM to 11 PM every night, I saw it on TV every day with my very own eyes.

    Have a listen friends:

    Foeign:
    Canada and Brazil were strong, UK/ PRS is still underwheming. All in all, I still feel as though ASCAP does a better job with Foreign royalties.

    Check with your library – CNN tends to be direct licensing ie zero royalties.
