Today, we’re extremely excited to announce that ACTRA RACS has come on board as a support partner for MusicOntario! This support will help the association thrive and prosper in the coming year ahead, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome RACS to the growing family of MusicOntario supporters.
Since 1998, RACS has distributed more than $45 million in neighbouring rights royalties to recording artists, and this number continues to grow each year. Different from SOCAN royalties, which are distributed to songwriters, neighbouring rights are owed to the performing artists themselves, whose recordings are played on commercial radio, satellite radio, public broadcast radio, and in other public forums. RACS helps put that money in the hands of artists, every day.
Of course, they can only do so if you’re registered your works, which is free and easy. To do so, and for more info, visit http://www.actra.ca/racs/
More announcements from MusicOntario coming soon! Stay tuned…
