Designed to be the biggest music networking event of the year for music makers at any stage of their careers, the ASCAP Experience takes place April in vibrant downtown Los Angeles at the InterContinental Hotel. Now in its 15th year, the event has evolved into a platform for industry leaders to give back to the next generation of music creators.
Additional speakers will continue to be announced in the coming months. ASCAP's mission is to license and promote the music of its members and foreign affiliates, obtain fair compensation for the public performance of their works and to distribute the royalties that it collects based upon those performances.
ASCAP members write the world's best-loved music and ASCAP has pioneered the efficient licensing of that music to hundreds of thousands of enterprises who use it to add value to their business - from bars, restaurants and retail, to radio, TV and cable, to Internet, mobile services and more.

ASCAP will be transitioning to a more flexible distribution schedule throughout andhe added. That's because all licensee business partners are likely trying to figure out how to navigate the economic downturn, which will cause payment disruptions to the performance rights org.
In her email to members, Matthews said ASCAP has "already been contacted by numerous licensees who are attempting to pay less, pay late or not pay at all. Matthews added that some of the vendor services ASCAP uses to process and pay the distributions "have also been materially impacted by COVID, so there is a domino impact that we are constantly navigating in terms of ensuring business continuity.
Meanwhile, BMI is not expected to be impacted by the economic downturn until later because it uses a different business model, paying out quarterly revenue from collections made in an earlier time frame. Consequently, BMI's payments for the current quarter were from the period ending Sept.
It's too early for us to tell the extent of the impact, but we are paying close attention as the situation evolves. Likewise, SESAC, in a March 18th email to its members, said it would make its March 31 distribution on schedule and added that subsequent distributions are also planned to occur on their regularly scheduled dates.
For instance, radio is generally dependent on local advertising so with most businesses shut down, that revenue has dried up. General licensing is also expected to be hit hard, as payments from live music venues will cease while all concerts are canceled.
Moreover, with most states ordering a shutdown of bars and restaurants, it's unlikely any of them will be renewing their annual license if it comes up for renewal during the shutdown.
And if they make monthly payments, it's unlikely that their PRO license payment will be a priority. With a shutdown of TV productions and commercials, synchronization is likely to take a hit at some point in the future too. International payments, which usually lag domestic collections, likely will be impacted too as many foreign territories were hit by COVID before the U.
Meanwhile, for the time being, performance payments from streaming services likely won't be impacted, but that may change as unemployed people look to reduce expense outlays, with subscriptions being an obvious thing to cut.
But the industry likely won't have a handle on how that is going until May or June. Matthews cautioned in her email that "it is important that we are all prepared for the future and we try to limit the number of surprises.
While things are tough right now, I remind myself that ASCAP has survived two world wars and several economic crises, so we stand on the shoulders of our predecessors to successfully fight through this pandemic. In O'Neill's email to BMI members, he said, "BMI is dedicated to our mission of making sure you are paid for your unparalleled creative work, whenever and wherever it is played.
