Re: My Song Was Played 3.1 Million Times on Pandora. My Check Was $39...
There are comments on here that are completely erroneous;(and ludicrous) and there are comments written by people that are relevant as they are backed up by facts.
There is a difference between how a songwriter who is NOT a performer gets paid as opposed to how an artist who creates their own songs are compensated by royalty defintion.
If you want to engage in meaningful discussions, please educate yourself as to how a songwriter is paid for their work....Some of the comments regarding my post are completely false and it is obvious that some people have to just say something even if there is no merit to what they are saying.
Please educate yourselves...It is a fact that Professional SOngwriters are leaving the business in droves as they cannot earn a living anymore--Forty-five percent of the songwriting community has LEFT....
There is something intrinsically wrong with the idea that Pandora can only create a profit for themselves by cutting songwriters royalties by 85%......
I encourage everyone to read and research the truth about Pandora and why it wants to sue ASCAP and create a profit off the backs of the songwriters who are the reason Pandora exists in the first place.
