BTW, they take a hefty 28% taxes out when you get paid.

Bumping this thread because I was looking into this today! One of my libraries requires opting out of the international mandate.

Don't have any personal experience (yet) but found the following info on a blog:

Positive Aspects of Opting Out:

1. You avoid giving SoundExchange exclusive control over licensing the rights to your sound recordings outside the US.
2. You can participate in direct-licensing commerce outside the US.
3. You can license your own music directly to clients outside the US.

Negative Aspects of Opting Out:

1. You can’t participate in statutory/compulsory licensing outside the US for your artist and/or sound recording owner rights.

So, I'm registered but not with the additional opt-in.
