I have had SOCAN on the phone all week talking with me about a few songs in a Major Motion Picture that was licensed from AudioJungle. The cue sheet was filled out, however because I cannot register an AJ track with a PRO – royalties cannot be recouped. Paradox. Will I need to remove every song from AJ in a few years?
I agree with much of what Tim said, however I am confused about something. If we are selling Royalty Free music, how could we register one of our AJ tracks with a Performance Rights Organization whose purpose is to collect royalties on behalf of the authors? Don’t we, as the authors, give up the rights to collect royalties when we sell our music as “Royalty Free”?
Now, I am truly confused about this, I appreciate any explanations.
Sorry guys, I’m a little bit confused. According to some of you, you can make just as many sales on other sites where the price and pay-out percentage are higher, so why bother selling on AJ at all? Is it because AJ still provides a decent number of sales and money, even at a lower price?
Congrats Jon! Good to see a local author doing well. Keep up the good work.
Has anyone found a way or have any tips on how to courteously and subtly encourage clients to share the projects they’re using your tracks on with you?
I actually have been curious about these featured files. Does anyone know how they’re chosen?
