Making SoundExchange honest
« on: January 05, 2010, 10:40:41 pm »
Corey Denis is watching events unfold around the SoundExchange promise to “better keeping the lines of communication open” and the latest onoine exposure of the SX Unpaid Artists list with considerable interest.

“While SoundExchange is arguably the most controversial non-profit music organization in America, the new bird’s eye view into the unpaid artist list gives everyone an opportunity to start the process of keeping them honest,” she told p2pnet.

Corey, founder of Not Shocking, goes on >>>

Ultimately, it will be difficult to find either artists or fans who want SoundExchange to keep the more than $200 million dollars in unpaid royalties, SX’s to keep if unclaimed by artists.

It’s just as awful as it sounds. The company is structured to gain from every copyright owner’s loss, but operates as a non-profit.

While they’ve been in existence since 2000, first as an unincorporated division of the RIAA and then as an independent organization, SoundExchange has yet to find the um-teen copyright owners to whom the $200 million belongs.

But now they are starting the process of coming clean, it’s 2010 – and it’s time to stop complaining and start acting.

Finally, we have a glimpse at their unpaid artist list.

Bands should actively search for themselves and fans are equally as empowered. Music fans of recent years have become more involved in the anti-RIAA movement, but now they can participate in the doling out of checks and in keeping Sound Exchange honest.

“The more fans who get involved the better – the absolute best thing any music fan can do for the musical arts is help spread the word to artists about this SX list, and how to sign up and get their sound exchange checks,” says Corey, adding:

“If you encounter artists who do not want their checks, start your own list and let SX know.”
