Current Streaming Entities Must File with SoundExchange by Jan. 31

Posted on December 31st, 2014 by

If you are currently simulcasting your signal online or just streaming online and your stream contains music, SoundExchange should be hearing from you no later than January 31, 2015. By this date, you must file your annual Statement of Accounts and make the minimum $500 payment for 2015. If you have elected to participate in one of the different settlement agreements reached in 2009, you must also re-elect for that plan in addition to filing the Statement of Account. If you fail to make an election (or re-elect), you will be subject to the default CRB rates and you will be required to do monthly reporting showing all songs streamed for that month (also known as “census reporting”). If you have questions about your responsibilities to SoundExchange, please contact your copyright counsel.
