    ◎加拿大的版權組織SOCAN公佈了其2018年的初步結算結果,顯示這一年是加拿大音樂產業破紀錄的一年。該組織在2018年創造了創紀錄的總收入為3.74億美元,比2017年增長了11%,其中有3.15億美元都分配給了SOCAN的會員,高於2017年的2.95億美元。

    ◎該收入中有2.82億美元來自於加拿大本地,是佔比最高的,金額比2017年增長8%也創下新紀錄,自2013年以來已增長了25%。來自加拿大以外地區的版權使用費是SOCAN會員的第一大收入來源,在過去5年中增長了70%。

    ◎SOCAN也報告說,他們的收入也跟隨著較廣泛的產業趨勢向數位消費靠攏。根據SOCAN的數據,2018年基於網路的授權音樂收入總計6200萬美元,比2017年的4900萬美元增長了27%。

    Canadian rights organization SOCAN published their preliminary results for 2018, revealing that the year was a record-breaker for the Canadian music industry. The PRO recorded record total revenues of $374 Million for 2018, an 11% increase over 2017. Of that, $315 was distributed to SOCAN members, up from $295 million in 2017.

    The lion's share of that revenue — $282-million — was generated in Canada, an increase of 8% from 2017, which also set a record and up by 25% since 2013.

    Royalties from non-Canadian sources are the #1 revenue stream for SOCAN members and are up by an impressive 70% over the last 5 years.

    SOCAN also reported that their revenue was following broader industry trends towards digital consumption. Per SOCAN, revenue from Internet-based licensed music in 2018 totaled $62-million, an increase of 27% from approximately $49-million collected in 2017.

    "The consistently increasing number of Canadian music creators aspiring to make a living from their creative work is similar to the halo effect we see in other industries," said SOCAN CEO Eric Baptiste. "SOCAN member songwriters and composers like Alessia Cara, Alexandra Stréliski, Drake, Elisapie, Frank Dukes, Hubert Lenoir, Keith Power, Loud, Murda Beatz, Shawn Mendes, Tebey, The Weeknd, and WondaGurl are excelling globally, and they inevitably inspire others to pursue their passion for creating music as a livelihood. A first step toward a serious career in music creation is to join SOCAN so that you can get paid for what you've created."
