I´m looking through a contract from a non-exclusive library and there is a part about this sound exchange service.
“The right to register the Licensed Work with the appropriate PRO as set forth in Article II above and, at Our option, to register each Licensed Work with SoundExchange or any other organization authorized to collect digital performing rights income and to collect all applicable digital sound recording performing rights income on behalf of the owner(s) of such Licensed Work;”
This is not some kind of Content ID service is it? No chance that my music will come up with copyright warnings on youtube videos etc. ?August 28, 2013 at 6:40 am #11851

Thanks a lot Art!
Being not native english speaking, these contracts can be a bit hard to understand sometimes.May 9, 2014 at 9:17 am #16270
Just came across this post. I have to be honest I have never quite really understood Sound Exchange but this is very intriguing.
Any experiences anyone would like to share. Thank youMarch 30, 2015 at 1:54 pm #21251
Wow, got my 2015 1st Q statement today from Soundexchange. Only been with them 3 quarters. Royalties went from $60 last quarter to $240 just for Pandora listens! That was with 2 albums; I have a 3rd approved and one under review. Hugely better than Spotify and worth trying to get your albums on there. Process time is slow though.March 30, 2015 at 2:19 pm #21254

Been getting pretty decent royalties for Pandora streams the past year or so. Today my statement included royalties from AudioSparx. Think that’s related to their RadioSparx outlet?February 25, 2016 at 2:26 pm #24112
SoundExchange royalties are related to statutory licensing that occurs for our music by sites like Google Play, Amazon, and other sites
that license music via statutory licensing.
This generates royalties to ASCAP/BMI/SESAC as well as to SoundExchange.
I believe this is somewhat complicated, so if you have additional questions, please click CONTACT at our website for more info.
Hope that helps,
