    I don’t use CD Baby, although I know my music is on iTunes from another source. They have since made changes and no longer go through IODA/youtube.

    Here’s the scoop: as a professional musician for over 30 years, I have decided to compose and perform my own music. I politely presented my work to many music library’s (non-exclusive) and awaited their approval. I don’t have a hidden agenda nor do I wish to cause any waves whatsoever. When told my entire library was being removed from a highly recommended music library, I was very disappointed. My intent has been to find the right place for my music and certainly never to take advantage of anyone. I know, ignorance is no excuse.

    If I really wanted to create waves, I would ask why do non-exclusives want my music exclusively but not willing to pay for it?

    (BTW, my IODA paycheck was $12.26 for 128 songs sold in 12 months.)

    I also made a few bucks through SOCAN – just got a statement from ASCAP! It’s my first cue sheet and I’m very excited! Surprised it is from Dec 2011 –  on a talk show. I hope that it doesn’t sound like I’m bragging – far from it! I’m just so pleased and grateful! Wanted to share the good news – have a great day everyone!
