"The digital music providers can accrue and hold royalties they owe to unidentified copyright owners provided they made a good faith, commercially reasonable effort to identify all the copyright owners for a song.

Which means to me, the MLC (Mechanical Licensing Collective) can keep any monies they can't find a copyright holder for. Reasonable effort may have a different meaning for the MLC. Maybe Iíve grown a bit mistrusting through the years. I'm sure since this is a Government entity they can be trusted beyond the shadow of doubt.

Is there a provision in the law for "unidentified copyright owners" to become identified to these pirates? Is ASCAP any help on this?

If it looks too good to be true... it's probably the Music Modernization Act! A license to steal if I ever saw one. No, Perry... ASCAP rolled over and played dead on this one after initially taking a stand. Cowards! There are so many songs and compositions that would have fallen into "the public domain" this year... these selfish plunderers could not stand the possibility that the average Jane or Joe could have recorded them or performed them in their own style. Now we will be forced to wait another century... and they will change the "law" again.

The management of music has become a crime, now legitimized by Congress.

And ASCAP's still bragging about acquiring this. Maybe I'm missing an understanding of this.I reckon I'm always thinking someone's out to get me.

Truth be known, John...

They are out to get you... LOL! Streaming robs you and nobody seems to be "in-charge" of sending the money where it should go... except to the big players.

There really is an issue some times in finding copyright owners. I had several songs that I dug out of the dungeon and now perform. I have found most of my co-writers - as they are still involved in making music. However, I still have a co-writer for one of my songs who I can't find - female - so it's more difficult due to name change(s) because of marriage(s).
I like the Music Modernization Act because my royalties have never been higher than they are now.

Sorry I'm late responding:

Thanks for that good news. Glad it is working for you. Tracking down co-writers can be a real struggle. As always, I'm wishing you tons of success... but it still isn't working for me (the MMA)... then it could be the problem of severe lack of talent on my part. LOL!

Later, ----Dave
