@wall_e , the license between the U.S. PROs, ASCAP and BMI, and their composers is non-exclusive, which allows composers to direct license. Many societies in other nations require an exclusive license from their composers, which can limit composers’ freedom and autonomy.July 19, 2019 at 5:45 pm #32737
Throughout my career I have been with BMI. Don’t know if it’s better or worse than the other PRO’s, but I do get a check every quarter.
BMI and ASCAP are the most accepted PRO’s in the US. I would affiliate with one of them if you are planning to do work in the US.August 5, 2019 at 5:22 am #32806
I am thinking about moving from PRS to BMI.
It seems that PRS has become worse in recent years.
My music usage claims are hanging months without any action from their side. Support does not answer until I send 2-3 letters.
And suddenly the money stopped coming to my bank.
I’m trying to solve this problem with support since April … so far without success.September 24, 2019 at 8:42 pm #33291
I was opening a new thread about it, but since there’s an existing one I guess I can ask it here.
Did you finally moved from SIAE to BMI or ASCAP?
I’m planning to move from SIAE to BMI, I was wondering if someone here experienced the process, how it was and what exactly happened to the existing catalog in SIAE, if it’s done by PRO or you will have to register songs again with BMI.
Thank you in advance!
