soundexchangf=logoSoundExchange—the entity that collects streaming royalty payments—posted its 2014 numbers recently, showing that such payments topped $773 million, up 31% from $590 million in the prior year. Calling 2014 “a banner year for SoundExchange,” President/CEO Michael Huppe exulted, “Not only did we pay out more royalties to recording artists and record labels, but they now receive payments faster than ever after we became the first sound recording performance rights organization in the world to deliver monthly payments.”
