JACAP Pays In Excess Of $320 Million To Music Creators Locally, Abroad

The Jamaica Association of Composers, Authors and Publishers (JACAP) is urging creative persons, especially artistes and songwriters, to become members of societies that can help them collect earnings from their work.

In an interview with The Sunday Gleaner recently, Lydia Rose, general manager of JACAP, revealed that the organisation has a system set up that allows them to know exactly which individual's music is being played at the different events, allowing them to work out how much money is to be paid over to the respective artistes.

"Sound system operators have a system that they use called Serato, which stores the playlist that they used, and we would ask them for that after the event," she said, explaining that JACAP also uses the Serato system. She then went on to explain that playlists from radio stations are also used to aid in the organisation's analysis of music played at different events.
