Have You Submitted Your Set Lists to SOCAN Lately?

by   on June 29, 2016

Do you want to get paid for performing your own songs in a "licensed to play" venue? If you're already registered with SOCAN, it's easy - you just login to the member's section, then choose "Notification of Live Music Performance" under SOCAN Forms. It's a good idea to first check to see if your concert info has already been entered - click on the "Unidentified Performances" link under the SOCAN Performances tab, and enter your band name in the search engine. Often if you performed at a festival, or were support for another band, they may have already entered the show info - then you just need to complete it by entering your set list! If you don't see the concert you're looking for there, start a new Notification of Live Performance - This is the information you'll need to have ready:
a. Date of concert
b. Name and address of venue
c. Name and address of the Company Presenting the Concert
d. The capacity of the venue (for performances outside Canada only).
e. For performances in Canada proof MUST be attached to the online Notification of Live Music Performance (NLMP).The proof or evidence must contain the following info: date of the show, the bands who perform, venue e.g. ticket stub, contract, advertisement/poster, program. For performances outside Canada you must have proof available. If the foreign society requests proof but it cannot be provided, the concert may not be paid.
f. Set list identifying the title of the work and composers or performer (if known)
g. To ensure timely and accurate distributions, please register all new works prior to completing the NLMP form. Go to My Catalogue to register your works.
h. Do not enter US performances that are older than 3 months.
