ASCAP robbed me! ASCAP robbed me!

Just got my royalty statement for this quarter. They took 35% of my blanket cable royalties! The adjustment reason states “Performance-Deleted”. So poof, royalties disappear with no true explanation.

Meanwhile, half of my statement is made up of streaming royalties which add up to about $50.

I feel good for some reason. Not happy about the situation, but good in that I am learning something about music licensing. From what I can see, the money is in upfront payments and not backend royalties. That is how it is working for me.

So I have a few decisions to make and a few tasks to execute.
