    Disagree……… It is not complicated at all. One must learn one’s business. EG SX do pay not only for FA’s but also for NFA’s……… but who among you agreed the FA’s should be paid 95% !!
    Agreed, the US is a mess, but then so is Europe etc.
    Production music is paid for in the EU…….. where does the money go?

    The closest thing here is what Sound Exchange collects for featured performers and producers within the narrow scope of non-interactive digital performances on DSPs.

    Non featured performers are paid by SX but only 5% of the gross [to be distributed].
    Musicians are only paid 2.5% while g/b singers are paid 2.5% not quite ‘equal’ !

    Who qualifies for neighboring rights may vary from country to country. There was a decision a few years back, I think in the Netherlands, in which the court distinguished between the musicians and producers whose contributions to a recording were sufficient to claim NR royalties. Producers, for example, had to have economic skin in the game, not only creative input.

    Moreover, with SoundExchange the performer and producer royalties are a percentage of the recording owners royalties, not in addition to. The owner of the master recording had to assign that percentage to the performers and producers. This may be different under the MMA, but it’s not something that I’ve had reason to research for anyone.
