The Growing Power of Cable in Music

The broadcast industry, from radio to MTV, has long played an important role in promoting new music and generating an important revenue source for the music industry. But with the explosion of broadcast channels through cable and satellite, the need for new music has jumped to an entirely new level, providing the industry with a much-need alternative marketing channel to radio and revenue channel to CDs. As such, the announcement of an agreement between cable subscription services such as DMX Music & Music Choice and the music industry, thus avoiding another torturous CARP episode, represents a silver lining in the dark clouds plaguing the industry.

Not surprisingly though, broadcasters are increasingly using their new clout to skimp on creators. The more publicized case is probably PAX TV that has demanded that writers working on shows produced for the cable channel join SESAC and surrender all performance royalties otherwise due by the network. This and other actions to 'pirate' songwriters and composers works have galvanized the community around a joint statement attracting a growing number of organizations.

"We, the undersigned, in acknowledgment of the importance of the rights of music creators, condemn any practice of production companies or broadcasters in demanding that composers and songwriters forfeit or otherwise surrender their writers' performance royalties as a condition of employment."
