    No sales on CD Baby, Level, or SoundCloud/SoundRain…as I said it was pennies and Gema was not able to help.
    I wish I had copyrighted all my stuff with copyright.gov before it became too expensive. Just because I had done this for 2 CDs in the early 2000s I was eligible to a CA suit against spotify and received nice cheques from this settlement 15 years later.
    Imagine sitting in Germany and receiving snail mail from these class action lawyers, saying I was eligible because somebody put my music on spotify and I had it copyrighted with .gov. I was so surprised.
    I can imagine something similar is going to happen with apple/amazon in the future.

    I am not on audiosparx and the specific tracks are on no other library than my own. It’s not only about the ridiculous amounts apple/amazon pay but its a general issue IMHO. These tracks were never licensed to anybody. The only way these tracks could have gone to amazon is by recording them from the online stream. I don’t want to put voiceovers on my 350 tracks on my website but now I understand why other libs do it 🙂

    Btw…Great Piano playing Johnnyboy!! 🙂

    The libraries registered them with Ascap and BMI for their publisher share, each of these libraries has their associated PRO, some BMI some Ascap and he has to register them with Buma in Holland for his composer share. Each has his own IPI. If his music is played mostly in USA it makes sense to leave Buma to get the royalties quicker. Dont forget mechanical rights though, Buma covers them and in USA only Sesac does. Also remember that publishers are allowed to have multiple memberships, composers don’t.

    No I am from Germany and had registered some albums with copyright.gov looong time ago only to find myself invited to a class action suit against spotify 2 years ago BECAUSE they were registered there. No such suits are possible in Germany and I got a nice sum out of the case, so I was thinking to register more since my music is in some US libraries now.

    So how much would it cost to register 100 songs with them? Am I seeing right its “group of unpublished works” which allows only 10 songs and is 85$ a pop? Does this mean 850$ for 100 songs? or 6000$ for my 500 songs?
