Not Sure?

How do I know if I am a Featured Recording Artist?
A recording artist, whether a solo performer or a performing group, is “featured” on any recording where that artist is identified most prominently in print or otherwise on the sound recording.

What does it mean to be a “Sound Recording Copyright Owner”?
The US Audio Home Recording Act of 1992 (AHRA) defines an SRCO as the party, under US Copyright Law, who owns or controls the exclusive right to reproduce the sound recording or authorize others to do so.
