I agree - Check it out!
I signed up in June and to my surprise got an ASCRL distribution of $233.68 in early October!
I recommend everyone who has published go through the process and sign up. You, too, may get a surprise in your account!

Thanks for staying so involved with this, Taina!

Subject: Second ASCRL payout benefits GNSI members

Hi All -  Check it out.

If you are a published illustrator (with minimum of 3 publications with ISBN numbers) and not already signed up/joined ASCRL - the American Society for Collective Rights Licensing, you really should join. And if you are a member and have hesitated to sign onto one of the open claims, please do not hesitate.  The system is working well now.  The second claim just paid out and a third will open next month.  I am on the ASCRL Advisory Board and I want as many illustrators to benefit as possible. 

Many GNSI members got bank deposits from these claim payments last week.  The more of us who join, the better the position ASCRL will be in to receive more funds from other international Reprographic Rights Organizations.  The 2 payments so far have just been from only two RRO's, (Pictorights of the Netherlands and BUS (Bildupphovsrätt i Sverige) of Sweden).  Its a big world out there, and many countries collect non title specific reprographic monies and are charged by the laws of their countries to get the money to the creatives who made the images.

Cheers -
