    I heard a rumour AdRev aren’t accepting RF composers. Does that only leave Tunesat for anyone looking to move into ContentID?

    I hadn’t heard that and I have an AdRev account (though only one track registered).

    You can’t compare Tunesat and ContentID.

    The person who filed the cue sheet didn’t properly write the name in a way that would have exactly matched any of the titles anyway.

    If your name is on the cue sheet you will get paid regardless of the title.

    Have there been many cases where you’ve had royalties not get through because of an alt title?

    Not the point for me. I want everything registered as I’m thinking more about future proofing all of my music and titles. We are fast approaching the day where PRO registration, music files and all titles are accounted for in one place. IMHO.

    does BMI take spreadsheets for importing data?

    Yes they do.

    I’m registering all versions as separate titles.

    I just finished registering all of my versions (well 95%), with alternate titles. A massive job with thousands of titles. Thank goodness for spreadsheets and Excel formulas!

    Anyway, I still doubt whether or not to register new tracks in ContentID, there are several advantages and disadvantages and it is not an easy decision.

    Interesting what you have discovered. I have been toying for a few years about placing my music in Content ID. I guess if my license sales ever hit bottom I will be forced to.

    Is there any list of with libraries accepting PRO and ContentID?

    ContentID can be problematic for composers, libraries and clients. If a client is monetizing their YouTube channel it can be a hassle if they receive a copyright strike. Yes, they can get the strike cleared but many composers stay away from ContentID as it might impact their sales.

    The music is free to be used. However, if you’d need to monetize your videos, you’d need to use your own tracks.

    That’s correct. I use Rocketium to create the MLR videos and their music is free. Of course I use our own music.

    I know for a fact that unless it is requested. NOT following the current music trends too closely, and being a few years behind is best.

    True dat, at least in my experience!

    How are people mostly getting into these libraries, were many open submission at some point prior and changed their policies?

    A few things:

    1. Try to establish a relationship and keep checking with them.
    2. Find out if they have genres they are missing in their catalog.
    3. There are about 500 libraries listed here, keep trying.
    4. Persist!

    2. There are no cue sheets, becasue A its a broadcasters commercial break and they havent submitted any cue sheets, and B they are are not in the PRS database.

    So I am now at a loss as to what to do.

    Any tips?

    Sounds like a promo and they are usually tough to get paid on. In the U.S. the network has to file and BMI only has agreements with the major networks. I gave up on collecting on them a long time ago.

    and none of them have seemed to cross over into sound exchange territory. Zip.

    Same here. I wonder why I bother registering with them!
