Congratulations John! That's how it all starts...now multiply what you've done here about a thousand times and you'll be sitting pretty... And while it may not be all that much money yet, it would buy a pretty darn nice frame! matto

I know what you mean....I had a song played on E! Television I didn't even know they played it till B.M.I. sent me the royalty check with the date they played it and how many seconds of it they played the song. It was just maybe one minute of the song for about 11 dollars but it was the joy that it was played that was more than the the money! I laminated my check because its my first royalty check! thats what made me get with taxi to try to get stuff like that to happen often!
