SEE WHO’S CLAIMING YOUR RECORDINGS
Registering recordings for thousands of clients at performance and neighboring rights societies around the world, I see ‘Another company has laid claim to your recording’ occurring the most often and being the primary reason royalties fall into the wrong hands. But at SoundExchange, there is tool that everyone can use and provides a window into who is claiming your recordings: The PLAYS Search Engine.
I encourage anyone and everyone who owns master recordings to check it out. If you do not see your recording in this database, it means SoundExchange has not received any plays associated with your track (sorry). If you see your recording but the “Rights Owner” field is empty, this means that SX has received plays and no one has yet claimed the track. And finally, if you see your recording and another party is listed as the rights owner, you are missing out on performance income that is rightfully yours.
