“As many have pointed out, PROs are a much more complex issue than it may seem”
Show Collis a royalty statement from any other music library and that will be an easy decision..
I thought for a second that I would start uploading new music. Then I read the fine print and realized its even worse than before essentially selling an all media license for $18. Tim McMorris and other big authors need to threaten removing their entire catalog or Envato will keep ripping you guys off.
Envato is way over their head with the music licensing business. About time they hire someone competent to make some real changes. Their current strategy pretty much says NO THANKS to millions of dollars in revenue from royalties. All because they want their website to say “Royalty Free” even though themselves, or their clients don’t have a [language removed] clue how royalties work in the real world.
Am I a hypocrite for keeping songs up for sale here? Hell yes. It makes me cringe, but it is still a chunk of change every month. Only reason my profile is still up is that I hope Envato will someday get with the picture..
Do yourself a favor and publish your better works though a library that respects these rights and the value of music.
AJ has given no word of even considering allowing composers to publish PRO registered works and it has been on the table for well over a year like you said.
Envato does realize that they could get a 50% chunk of the royalties as the “publisher” of the music right? It’s ridiculous in the first place that they opt out of the PRO collection process just so they can keep the label of “royalty free” and not confuse buyers into thinking they might have to pay some phantom royalties on the music. Even sillier considering they themselves lose out on the revenue stream too, not just the artist.
Looks are much better, functionality and ease of use is much worse :/
This Mitt Romney ad! Even though I support Obama, still coolhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=or68CbMAckI&feature=plcp
Don’t worry about it Flossie, they have to stick to enforcing the rules for fairness even if you’re not really promoting, just celebrating Grats on the milestone
Sounds to me like that laptop will be plenty good enough. I just got a macbook pro i7 2.2 quad core and its way more than enough power for sketching ideas and sometimes making full songs. Even with more ram heavy libraries it never hickups. im actually thinking about downgrading to a i5 13 inch macbook
