So, is the same pool of money being distributed differently? Or is there a change in the overall amount of money distributed for TV placements?
Or, in other words, will our royalties increase for shows with more viewers and decrease for shows with fewer viewers?
Thanks for sharing this information.
You should be paid every time it airs.
I’m waiting on Fuse News 2013Q3 as well.
History Channel is usually on time.
Telemundo royalties are low.
Thanks for this information, especially information about LicenseQuote.
I’m curious to know if composers with tens or hundreds (not thousands) of tracks on LicenseQuote are having enough success there to justify their time setting it up, and the expense.
I agree completely with Advice. If you can get placements yourself, by all means do it! But I’ve decided my time is better spent producing music, researching which companies would be best equipped to represent it, and working toward signing music with these companies. That’s already a big job.
I do consider whether I’d be wise to devote a certain portion of my time (10 hours a week) to working toward licensing my music directly. Open question. So far, I’ve not decided to do this. Only so many hours in a week.
Thanks for this information, Art. I have recent Tunesat promo detections on a different network. If they don’t appear on my statement, I’ll contact BMI and follow up on this.

Fun. Thanks for sharing this.
RAW Metallic Percussion is pretty cool.
I think there’s no good answer.
You have to provide enough tracks that you have a shot at getting placements. If you provide 10 tracks and don’t get placements, you haven’t learned much. If you provide 100 tracks and don’t get placements, you burned 100 tracks.
This is a large part of the risk of signing your tracks without an upfront fee.
Every situation is different. Nonetheless, I’ll boldly throw out a number to start the conversation. I’d say around 4 years, give or take a lot.
I’ve had the experience of getting no placements for 2-3 years and then getting a lot of placements, so it’s hard to say.
I’ve also had the experience of getting no placements for 2-3 years, then no placements for the next 2-3 years as well…
It also depends on whether you have a better place to put those tracks. How licensable are the tracks? Is your time best spent producing new and better tracks?
