Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on Music Industry of United States of America. It needs to be at least 1250 words. Broadcast Music Incorporated, American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers and Society of European Authors & Composers are three of the performance rights organizations in the USA entrusted with the collection of fees for music publishers, songwriters, and composers. Music companies often pay royalties to the singers and musicians as per the contract on the copies of recording sold apart from the signing amount. Once the recording companies do a recording they reach the stores through a recording distributor company. It should also be mentioned that any form of music that generates revenue does fall under the music industry. Following this definition, any live performance and any type of broadcasting of music associated with the monetary transaction should be considered as the part of this industry. The band manager, business manager, booking agencies, tour manager and people associated with lighting, sound reinforcement, and many other aspects are the part and parcel of the greater USA music industry. .The US market distribution for the music industry is well illustrated by the Nielson Sound Scan as reported by Paul Cashmere. According to Nielson Sound Scan report, Universal Music enjoyed a market share of 31.61% in the year 2006 and the biggest music firm as far as the market share is concerned. The mentioned firm even occupied a higher market share in terms of topped current albums and that accounted for 34.73%. The closest follower was Sony-BMG that occupied 27.44%and 28.13% in terms of overall market share and the current topped album sold respectively. .The US market distribution for the music industry is well illustrated by the Nielson Sound Scan as reported by Paul Cashmere. .
