There’s been a noticeable increase in “composers” or “licensing experts” trying to charge upfront fees to submit music for licensing opportunities on behalf of musicians.
I invite all of them to participate in my PAY TO PLAY challenge. Here’s the guidelines.
- The “licensing expert” in question sends me their most recent ASCAP/BMI/SESAC writers royalty check.
- If they’re earning more money than one of my top three writers, I’ll officially endorse their company on my YouTube channel, on panels etc..
Unless they take me up on my challenge (and win), they’re ripping you off.
