I terminated my BMI membership contract. Why do I always receive national BMI royalties? Some say why not sign up when it doesn`t cost them (the songwriter) something? For publishers and songwriters, there is a one-time registration fee of $50. After the termination of your affiliation agreement, BMI will continue to license works published on your behalf by a publishing house currently linked to BMI, unless the publisher terminates its membership in the BMI or requests that the works be removed during the contract renewal period. If so, existing licenses begin with the termination of your publisher`s BMI affiliation agreement or when your publisher removes the works from the BMI directory. The inscription of a songwriter, composer or publisher of a work is enough to pay tribute to all participants. If the publisher files a record, the author is not obliged to submit it and vice versa. However, we strongly recommend that each co-editor of a work submit their own songregitration form to ensure that the book is listed on the publisher`s correct BMI account. BMI will enter the work into its database for the actions and participants indicated at the time of the first registration. If a subsequent registration has been received for the same work that is in conflict with the previous registration, we will notify and file written confirmations of all relevant participants before changing our records. The proceeds from foreign benefits will be paid to you by your new PRO, even if you have works that continue to bMI licensed in the United States. Your new pro agent or licensee should notify foreign companies of your new membership to ensure that foreign royalties are properly paid. You may also receive a number of international royalties on BMI pipelines for services that took place prior to the termination of your affiliation agreement. In addition, some companies change their records faster than others.
If BMI receives international royalties after the termination of your membership agreement, these royalties will also be paid by the BMI. If you want to terminate your immigration contract, you must inform the BMI as follows: But most importantly, you need to figure out how to collect the songwriter`s fees for the songs you write (and write). It is not the artist`s responsibility. Not the label`s responsibility. Not the manager of the other artist. YOUR RESPONSIBILITY. If you want your money, you save it to the publishing house PRO and admin or mechanical royalty collections. I have terminated my BMI affiliation contract, but BMI continues to underlicense some of my works, since my publisher is an immigrant partner. How can I move the works to my new PRO or license agent? Is there anyone connected to Sesac? How is your record for songwriters/publishers? PRS for Music and BMI (Broadcast Music, Inc.) today announced the signing of a new reciprocal international agreement that will benefit songwriters, composers and music publishers representing both companies.
