Techdirt reminded me of a question I’ve often had about royalty collection agencies… Especially not-for-profit ones. If all these licenses are being paid to one central agency, surely they should be spending some money to make sure that those people who have earned it get it.
When the onus is on the artist to track down every agency that possibly collects funds I am not surprised that royalties get missed or forgotten.
And once again… the artist loses out.
Geez, how do we manage to exist in this climate?
