I was surprised I hadnt seen any posts about the impending strike by the IATSE on here (or maybe Ive just missed them) but I wanted to open up a discussion since in many ways it does relate to our community of composers and how "new media" has been a term that definitely impacts our BMI, ASCAP, or Other Royalty Distributions. I personally am for the strike, it may not impact us directly at first (or maybe it will) but I think its a step in the right direction for fair payment on streaming royalties. I laugh at what I see on my statements sometimes, Network is about 1100% more than my streaming royalties from all streaming combined. "New Media" is an outdated term. Streaming is not an experiment anymore, they know theyre going to make revenue, and as the years go on, streaming will overtake Network and Cable.
