U.S. Copyright Royalty Board Submits 44 Percent Songwriter Streaming Royalty Increase

I stumbled upon an article today saying that the U.S copyright royalty board is submitting to have songwriter streaming royalties increased by 44 percent.  If all goes our way (our way meaning the way of artists) this would be huge step in the right direction for our streaming revenues.  In all honesty, when you look at the rates below, a 44 percent increase doesn't amount to much, but at least it is a start.

Napster - $0.0167 
Tidal - $0.0110 
Apple Music - $0.0064 
Google Play - $0.0059 
Deezer - $0.0056 
Spotify - $0.0038 
Pandora - $0.0011 
YouTube - $0.0006

What are you all using to manage your streaming royalties?  Please comment below, link me to your profiles and share your experience.
