    Hi DavidM,
    To be honest, I was surprised how quickly they responded.
    Yes, they took my album (10 tracks).

    I finally made my first exclusive album in 2020 and sent it to some majors. Checking Soundcloud stats, I realized that they weren’t listening to it at all. The only one who listened and answered me was Warner. It was unexpectedly quick, just during few hours. I guess it’s not about covid, it’s just a matter of luck.

    Sorry, I can’t answer your questions. But I want to ask, is it legal to be registered with both PRO on the same territory? I mean BMI and ASCAP. PRS talked me that I can be registered just with one PRO.

    I am thinking about moving from PRS to BMI.
    It seems that PRS has become worse in recent years.
    My music usage claims are hanging months without any action from their side. Support does not answer until I send 2-3 letters.
    And suddenly the money stopped coming to my bank.
    I’m trying to solve this problem with support since April … so far without success.

    Hi Art, thanks for your entry!
    You’re right, it’s complicated stuff…
    I just got the answer from PPL: “PPL do not license library music so in any case this would not affect your agreements you have in place in relation to music libraries.”
    Then I don’t understand why I must give the exclusive rights to them?
    Hmm… seems to be tricky.

    I started to register a PPL account, but I don’t know how this can affect my agreements with libraries.

    Especially this:
    “To join as a recording rightsholder member, you must give PPL the exclusive UK public performance and broadcasting rights in your recordings, so that PPL can license those uses of your recordings on your behalf.”

    Any thoughts?

    I try to get my songs into as many music libraries as possible, but just a few of these libraries work.

    mp3s are working well.

    I found a dozen of TV spots (30-60 sec) on ispot.tv, some of them with 1000’s of airings.
    I sent the info and links to the videos to PRS and now I see one of my claims is rejected with the reason: “Society could not identify broadcast”.
    Tunesat has detected this spot airing on ABC, TV1, CBS, NBC etc.
    Is it a typical case? Could someone advise the alternative ways to find information about tv spots detected by tunesat?

    I started to get PRS royalties the first year I entered to RF market (with just a dozen of tracks)..Can’t say it’s a lot of money. Varies from 200-400 pounds to 0.
