ASCAP Members: Videotape a Message for Congress About Your Life as a Music Creator
For close to a century, ASCAP has been a leader in advocacy and grassroots efforts focused on protecting the rights of music creators. We had a great response to last year’s video initiative, designed to inform and educate key Washington policy makers and legislators about the issues that affect the music community. As a follow up, we are once more looking to capture testimonials from ASCAP members and fellow music creators at this year’s EXPO. If you would like to have your voice heard by your respective Members of Congress and others, please stop by Room #325 to take part in a brief video interview and articulate what being a music creator means to you!

SoundExchange: What It Is, Why It Pays, and How to Get Your Share

SoundExchange will explain how registering (for free!) with them can earn you royalties for plays on satellite radio, Internet radio, cable TV music channels and other services that stream sound recordings. SoundExchange is a non-profit, and an important source of revenue for all artists (big and small) and labels (indie and major): they've distributed over $900 million to artists and labels so far. But thousands of artist and labels don't know they need to register, and millions in royalties haven't yet been claimed. Interactive and question-driven, this workshop will also cover need-to-know info on copyright, licensing, metadata, and legislation that will affect your career.
