I licensed a song to a Hollywood movie -they had me fill out

Customer Question

I licensed a song to a Hollywood movie -they had me fill out all kinds of paperwork and register with a Performance Rights Organization. It's been out for about a year now and I have not received a dime for royalties -the film doesn't even show up on my ASCAP account (which means they never actually submitted all of that painstaking paperwork I filled out). Do I have any recourse ? Is it even worth trying to get something for all of my hard-work or just chalk this up to experience ?

Thanks for reading !

Do you know if the movie was out, and if your song was utilized?
