Great news! (Rolling)


#1

This is a thread for sharing great news

Just got some great news at work; The honorary Chairperson for our (Amnesty International) Turkish section has just been freed after 14 months in prison.

Obviously we’ve been campaigning for his release for a long time so even though they haven’t dropped the charges and he still has a court date set for November it’s absolutely fantastic news that he’s being released.

So, share your great news, big or small, so that we can all share in each other’s joy :slight_smile:

No haterz plz

Are you with Sentric or someone similar? (I have no idea how these things Actually work I’m just a drummer)

Will you be asking them if they are pro tomato?


#6

oh yeh you won’t…surprised you can actually get yourself dressed :wink:

im with a music library so i guess similar to sentric in many ways.

people can use the tracks for free and i get (should get) prs/mcps royalties for usage

You’ll get royalties for that though surely?

Also, well done :+1:t3:

publishers are looking into it…it was posted 3 years ago…and nothing!


#12

A guy I worked with for a while who played keys on a Spice Girls album got a surprise PRS/MCPS cheque nearly 15 years after the fact as apparently the collection agency in Holland never passed on the royalties and only noticed after an audit. That was a spare £22k from nowhere

Fingers crossed :crossed_fingers:
