Two years ago, we published Vel Omazic’s immensely helpful article, Canadian Music Royalties Explained, which de-mystified the Canadian music royalty eco-system. Today we publish his updated overview that in great part is the result of lengthy discussions with industry professionals and questions raised by artists since the article first appeared in print. This is one feature that needs to be printed and kept close at hand.
Those making headlines today include Royalty Exchange, Billy Bragg, Jay-Z, CMA Awards, Kesha, Fufanu, Fats Domino, Robert Plant, Tom Petersson, Arcade Fire, Deep Dark Woods, Tegan and Sara, Gunner and Smith, Morrissey, Rihanna, and Neil Young.
