I found Chris Gatewood to be very informative tonight, may 11th, 2009, with his take on music protection, and royalty administration. One thing I wanted to mention, but never got to, was, about ringtones. As a Harry Fox agency affiliate, I am able to give permission, as a publisher, for my songs to be used as ringtones, though, none has. This could be an excellent source of revenue. I know I paid $1.99 to download a rolling stones song. One thing I think can be improved with meetings such as this is, allow the guest to speak uninterrupted for a period of time before taking questions. He never got to finish his agenda. Let’s hope we continue to draw new and varied individuals to our meetings henceforth. Good writing everybody.. /Glen K.
