Questions for authors who use are registered with BMI Pro

#1

Hello all. So I signed up for BMI last year after the rules changed here. I know it takes a long time to actually collect any royalties but how long? I def. had some sales where the company who purchased my music would have to register it with BMI (or however it works)…So how long does it actually take?

I check my Royalty Statements on BMI every week but so far nothing.

Can somebody explain how the whole process works? Thanks.

The answer: it depends.

If your track is played in a country different from where your PRO is located it can be a year or more.
