ANOTHER BIG SCORE FOR SONY/ATV
5/15/17

Sony/ATV Music Publishing touts its songwriting royalty portal–SCORE–as “state of the art.” And now, they’ve announced, it will be even better. Their enhanced portal gives songwriters and their reps real-time access to their royalty accounts. Songwriters can now see their earnings as soon as the company receives them.

Another new feature is called SCORECARD, a graphic interface that gives songwriters an up to date look at their current and past royalties, in granular detail, if desired.

The gargantuan pubco, which administers more than 3 million copyrights, also announced plans to release a SCORE app, which will make it simpler for songwriters to access the portal on the go, via a tablet or smart phone.

“The new changes are amazing. The ability to see current earnings almost in real time is so helpful. The historical data provides a great snapshot as it relates to my royalties,” said Tom Douglas, Sony/ATV Grammy, Oscar and Golden Globe-nominated songwriter. “The creative relationship with a publisher is obviously critical, but maybe the most under-appreciated part of one’s relationship with the publisher is royalty and accounting.”

“As the world’s No. 1 music publisher, Sony/ATV prides itself on providing our songwriters and their teams an unsurpassed level of transparency and service with highly detailed royalty information, said Sony/ATV Chairman and CEO Martin Bandier, taking a break from mourning the closing of the historic Original Tinder Box in Santa Monica. “Additionally, within the next few months we will unveil the complementary SCORE app, further providing them with an unrivalled and groundbreaking insight into both their historic and current period royalties.”
