Every day audiences engage with music in a variety of ways; streaming on the way to work, attending a concert, theme music from their favourite tv show, or background music while you shop or hit the gym. In each case, the music creators/rightsowners are entitled to royalties. SOCAN tracks millions of micro-transactions every day through specialized software and systems that match the songs being used to the license fees being paid by our music business partners like Spotify, Netflix, YouTube, and Live Nation to name only a few. SOCAN licenses more than 100,000 businesses across Canada.
In this session, SOCAN Creative Representative, Houtan Hodania, Creative Executive, East Coast will cover royalty administration, performing and reproduction rights management, sync placements, how to register your songs, how your music is licensed, and why SOCAN is an important first step in ensuring you are paid the royalties you’ve earned whenever your music is performed, reproduced or used in any way, in Canada and around the world.
