Your subscriptions earn our composers directly for the use of their music. In traditional royalty free societies the overheads are massive because they employ large numbers of people to call up businesses chasing them for royalty payments and also employ agents to check up by organising suprise visits on businesses. Additionally traditional royalty societies have to pay very high salaries to their board members. But less about them, what about Melody Pods? How do we make this work for everyone?
Well firstly we have improved on the tracking shstems of music usage. Traditional royalty societies have little knowledge of what you, a business are playing on a day by day basis so it’s very unlikely that the artists you may be playing actually gain from the bill you pay to the societies.
With Melody Pods we know exactly what artist’s music is being played. Of course we need to know exactly who owns the music we play so as to ensure the compositions are completely legal to play with no additional performing or compositional rights due.
When new artists submit music we not only ensure they legally sign to say their music is fully cleared for use with no additional performing royalties due, but also we check ourselves since its not always the case that artists will fully understand the legal complications around assigning societies to collect royalties for them.
Secondly, Melody Pods is a small and nimble little company that has very low overheads and so more of the money goes to artists, so we feel it’s correct to say we are the fare trade version of the performing rights music industry. Why do it anyway else? Customers nor artists benefit from paying the bills of large corporate offices and huge executive board bonuses.
Keep it simple we say, get great music to businesses who need it for supporting their businesses environments and don’t make it cost the earth. No rip offs, no corporate greed, just great music to businesses everywhere trying to make a good life for themselves.
