Bernie (or anyone who has the 'Berries ears), I recently read an article about a new royalty for artists that went into effect under the DMCA. The royalty is paid to artists and copyright owners for digital performance, like satellite radio or internet radio. The artist's rights to royalties is separate from the copyright holder by law. So even though Capitol owns the copyrights on the recordings, the Raspberries would still collect royalties as artists. In fact, "non-featured" artists on a recording are entitled to royalties as well. This is a performance royalty and is in addition to any songwriter royalties. Such performance royalties have existed for radio play in Europe for a long time but only through this new law did they become available in the USA for digital media. Copyright owner gets 50%, featured artist 45% and non-featured musicians and vocalists are entitled to split 5% by law. The article mentioned how a lot of artists from the 50's - 90's who never made a lot of money off their big hits because the record companies own the copyrights are finally seeing some money come in. It varies according to how much they get played of course but some artists get anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars a year. The article also mentioned how many artists just don't know about this and SoundExchange, the company set up to administer the distribution of these royalties, has a whole bunch of money they can't distribute because 30,000 artists haven't registered. They have extended their deadline to July to register to claim their share for royalties due for 1996-2000. Groups can register as one entity naming a representative or group members can register separately. Anyway, if the guys weren't aware of this someone should clue them in so they can get any royalties due to them. All the info is on soundexchange.com. Hope that helps!
