Stream Online? Remember to File With SoundExchange By Jan. 31

Posted on December 17th, 2013 by

If you send your signal or stream over the internet and it contains music, SoundExchange wants to hear from you by January 31, 2014.  By that date, you must file your annual Statement of Accounts and make the minimum $500 payment for 2014.  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, you will be subject to the default Copyright Royalty Board fees which require monthly reporting of all songs streamed.  If you have questions about your responsibilities to SoundExchange, please contact your copyright counsel.
