Are You One Of 7462 RootMusic Artists Owed $5.3 Million From SoundExchange?

image from RootMusic, the company behind Facebook’s music app BandPage has partnered with performance rights nonprofit SoundExchange in an effort to connect 7,462 artists to $5.3 Million in unclaimed royalties.

RootMusic provided a list of artists who’ve created BandPages and SoundExchange matched that list against its log of artists who have royalties waiting to be claimed. Armed with that list, RootMusic sent out notifications to let those artists know that SoundExchange has money for them. 

ReverbNation, Sonicbids and others have done similar data matches as part of SoundExchange's ongoing effort to distribute digital performance royalties from sound recordings are streamed on the net, played on satellite radio or used on cable music channels.
