INDIE ARTISTS, PRODUCERS, & LABEL RESOURCES
Nielson Broadcasting is best known as the company that rates the popularity of television programs. In addition to T.V., the company is also diversified in several music entertainment properties, and is the owner of Billboard magazine, as well as SoundScan.
SoundScan is an online service that tracks the sale of music and video releases. Any music product that carries a barcode is eligible to be tracked by SoundScan, if the retailer elects to report their sales to SoundScan. Although this is no longer the case, Newbury Comics elected NOT to report their sales to SoundScan for years as they thought that their competitors could use the information and negatively affect their own sales.

SOUNDSCAN IS IMPORTANT HERE IS WHY..... 
COPYRIGHT YOUR MUSIC OR LOSE IT..... 
ASCAP & BMI REGISTER TO PREPARE FOR ROYALTIES
If you’ve ever read the liner notes of an album (especially back in olden times when CDs were still prevalent), you probably noticed either “(ASCAP)” or “(BMI)” next to each music publisher’s name. If you’ve ever wondered what those jumble of letters means, then this article is for you.  What is the “right of performance”?
When you create a musical composition, copyright law grants you certain rights (see my “Copyright & The Music Industry” article for a broader discussion) and one of those rights is the right to perform your work publicly. Now, this right doesn’t only refer to when an artist performs a song live at a club. ....                                               
                                                                                
When you submit a song for copyright you’re simply proving the date of submission of your work. The fine folks of the copyright office don’t sit around listening to every submission to see if they’ve heard it before. That would be an impossible task.  When you write or record your song, technically, you’ve created it — and thus you own the copyright to it. By submitting a song to the copyright office, you’re protecting your music simply by acknowledging the date of its creation.
It’s also important to note that certain aspects of your song are not protected even if you’ve registered the copyright. These include:

Lauryn Hill has changed her appearance over the years, but not like other celebrities of color.  Her complexion isn't lighter, the nostrils of her nose have not been narrowed.  She has not gained or decreased weight in a way that is extreme.  Hill's breasts are still as Yah created them, no additives.  Lauryn is not like the many celebs of color that desire to emulate her Caucasian counterparts.  Hill has no desire to become more accepted by today's social groups. Post a successful music and acting career, in mainstream America, die hard fans still crave the insight of Lauryn delivered to them through euphonious melodies and Hip Hop rhythms.  Many fans are anxiously asking Lauryn to release another studio album.  Die hard fans stalk Youtube and heavily contribute to the millions of video views of Lauryn Hill in her prime.  The public says "Lauryn Hill, when will you come back?".   Lauryn Hill didn't leave nor stop, she changed.  Hill as a Fugee was conscience in her lyrics.  Once she branched out we could hear the matured wisdom communicated to us on her album, "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill".  Hill appeared to be very transparent and forthcoming about her life.  She used that transparency to influence her audience to avoid her many mistakes.  The album was awarded 5 Grammys, it appeared as if Lauryn was just getting started.  This album was celebrated by intellectuals, philosophers, serious musicians, and thugs alike.  The dreadlocks  had grown significantly since the Fugees, symbolic for her increase in wisdom.  Ms. Hill was touring all over the world.  Her body was slim, her choice of attire was sexy.  Her voice was smooth yet raspy.  Her band skillfully wowed her sold out audiences, as they offered live renditions of Hill's numerous hits.  Talk shows, interviews, speeches, lectures, I would have to say Lauryn was at the top of the Hill.  Everyone wants to be at the top, but many have no clue as to the view from that height.  Lauryn was there, and what she saw was not to her liking.  To continue to succeed Lauryn would have to make choices that could cause her to lose her identity, her values, and more than that, HER SOUL.  Ms. Hill went on a hiatus to gather her self.  Her following became anxious, they wanted to hear from her.  They would but along with the world, they would experience an unannounced change in Lauryn Hill.   























Lauryn is a sincere transparent artist. Her songs are inspired by life's experience.  Her view of what she saw at the top would be discussed in a melodious fashion.  Lauryn returned to the public via MTV.  No band, no locks, no background vocalists, no sexy attire.  Instead Ms. Hill wore a ball cap, had her guitar, slight makeup, and a nearly bald head.  Lauryn Hill had changed, yet her fans were still seared to their seats in anticipation of her music.  Hill did not disappoint, although she did not sing fan favorites.  Lauryn introduced a new song, many new songs.   Hill's song selection was beautiful.  The melody of her guitar stroke was captivating.  Her voice was noticeably hoarse but spot on in a hypnotizing kind of way.  Her energy had her multicultural crowd in a trance.  As expected from Lauryn Hill, her words were eye opening, transparent even, but there was a difference.  There was a conviction in her voice.  Her words were coated with spiritual dialect and the undertone was that of the thoughts of a revolutionary.  The lyrics and delivery of Lauryn Hill was her announcement to the world that she was choosing to fall away from the mainstream and focus on bettering herself, family, and humanity.  Hill gave up success as she had known it because she refused to submit to what she called "Babylon".  In songs like Jerusalem and Rebel, one can hear the mission she has partnered with.  Hill provided the world with a double album that day "Lauryn Hill Unplugged 2.0", which is available on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/MTV-Unplugged-No-Lauryn-Hill/dp/B000065625.  Every since that musical announcement Ms. Hill has held to her convictions.  She has continued to tour and sell out audiences.  She continues to be an advocate for people of color and the downtrodden.  Lauryn experienced a brief stent in prison, some say that this was persecution because of Hill's current direction.  Hill shares that sentiment based upon a letter she wrote in reference to her incarceration.  The incarceration did not break Hill's focus and tenacity.  Hill continues to teach through song.  Lauryn Hill has become a watchmen on the tower, she warns us all of the dangers that are ahead.  Many things have changed about Miss Hill, but her soul filled tunes and lyrical prowess holds true.  One of her greatest songs was not released.   Lauryn sings with such soul and passion, accompanied by a bluesy hip hop musical arrangement in her song "World is a hustle".  Listen to this tune above and enjoy our Changed for the better Lauryn Hill.  Seeing that I work for the man I am forced to write that our General DeShawn Tatem is in love with Miss Lauryn Hill.  Live on, shine on, continue on.
