Long time listener, first time caller...

Along with the royalty decrease and the deplorable sales recently, Audiomicro has seemed to have done something rather suspicious, They changed (not 100% sure whether intentionally or accidentally) the Publisher info in the cue sheets on all of my music from MY publisher information to "IMAGECOLLECT PUBLISHING". Which apparently is THEIR publisher information. This would (in my basic understanding) grant any potential publishing royalties to their own account, essentially stealing it from me.

An inquiry to them resulted in an apology, an explanation that it was a mistake, and MY Publisher info has since been restored.

On a further check of other contributors' music tracks, I can see that they did the same to them. "IMAGECOLLECT PUBLISHING" is credited. I would suggest anyone with music there with PRO information check their own files and ensure the correct info is there.

If I'm not understanding something about how cue sheets and PRO's work, I would appreciate honest enlightenment.

I just noticed that  some of my tracks, which have been licensed  thru Audiomicro also  had  my publishing company changed  by Audiomicro, to  an "  IMAGECOLLECT PUBLISHING". I placed a call to them, and I am awaiting a response.
(FYI-Daryl, When a track is licensed  usually for air, TV or film, a cue sheet must be sent to the  publisher, writer, and/ASCAP for royalty payments every time  it plays on air., or  on performances, etc.)

That's exactly what I thought, so if they sent a cue sheet with their own publishing information in the place of yours or mine, they would get all those theoretic ASCAP royalties. Pure thievery.

I'm curious about their demeanor on the phone. If it's anything like their email support, it's belittling and antagonistic.

I have since removed my music collection from Audiomicro as well as my SFX. They are a very shady company. I would highly recommended anyone submitting there to be cautious.
