Re: My Song Was Played 3.1 Million Times on Pandora. My Check Was $39...
9.1 cents mechanical license per song, per unit sold. Take 9.1 cents time 3.5 million. She cowrote, so divide by 2. If she had a publisher as well then the 9.1 cents would be divided by 2 first, then the remaining 50% divided between the two cowriters. Without mechanical royalties songwriters wouldn't bother writing and spending a crap load of time and effort to get music out there. You are just flat out an idiot. You should come in May to the songwriter festival in Key west and spew your moronic theories.
