||+ Agreed – this can only be a temporary solution and is not ideal. I would personally love to see PRO integration at Envato that would allow us to collect back end for TV and Film broadcast, which is basically money on the table and no additional cost to the buyer.This is not true, buyer has to pay PRO company. A friend of mine who is with PRO and on Audiojungle has had several complaints of buyers who have been ordered to pay thousands of dollars to PRO company for usage in public areas (company stand, Exhibition with promo video’s…)
This is the whole point and why we should be allowed to register.
A PRO asks moneys for broadcasting and every public performance anyway, even if you are the rights owner or your music is CC or totally free.
Thus for the client doesn’t change anything but our moneys collected by the PRO are shared between PRO members rather than payd to us
But still any word from Envato
BTW, hola Jesús, just found you here!
Greetings from Menorca
And this is a practical example why we should be permitted to register to PRO: being it a live performance or a broadcasting (I can’t see any other reasons why client should comunicate your name to SIAE) the client will pay anyway, even if it is a RF song, but the moneys stay in SIAE pockets instead of yours.. sad..
Yes Raquel, I remember what you said about PRS, thank you!
Anyway try to check SIAE that I almost sure it let you choose
Yes, this would be the best and the only definitive solution
My sales here are not big (and I can only blame myself for that) but from PRO I get thousands a year that let me survive
Well, having one camera and a tripod =/= two microphones, cables to the power source, more cables to the preamp, more cables from preamp to soundcard, computer, speakers or headphones to chect that out… a bit more stuff to carry around.
Of course you could have just a recorder but you won’t get THAT high quality… or you might. Technology is evolving.
Here, depending on your budget, anything from a Zoom (small and light) to something like this ( http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/325631-REG/Sound_Devices_744T_744T_4_Channel_Portable_Audio.html ) equipped with a shotgun mic gives you stellar results
Hola Raquel, as far as I know (and as I said before) the italian SIAE let you decide wich song you want to register with them and wich not. Maybe drop them a line just to be sure even if I don’t like them and I’ll move to PRS soon
Regarding this fact, generally speaking, I personally don’t care what they say; the music is mine and I just do what I want of it unless they show me a publishing exclusive contract I signed with them or I registered a song with them; for everything else I let them speak with my lawyer. The purpose of these collecting society is to collect your royalties and protect your rights, not make the most money they can from that..
