I belong to BMI, and we get paid if we register when we have performed our own songs. However, online shows are not covered in those payments.
I see that you have a form for listing the songs we've played so that the writers can be paid. Can we list our own songs as well? They are listed with BMI. I usually do half original songs, half cover songs. I played on Concert Window for ten months, not knowing I should have listed my set list in writing. Help?
We encourage you to list your own songs as well. We will report to BMI via our licensing agreement with them.
You can absolutely fill out the form after the fact.
Here’s a link to fill out your setlist.
When you submit the form to us, the date you submit is recorded. It’s ok if it doesn’t match the date of your performance for the purposes of our licensing agreement. If you need to add more songs, simply submit the form and start a new form. Does that make sense?
