    Episode 261: Are you owed Music Royalty Payments?

    Episode 261: Are you owed Music Royalty Payments?

    In this episode, Rick talks with Kris Ahrend from The MLC. The Mechanical Licensing Collective (The MLC) is a nonprofit organization designated by the U.S. Copyright Office pursuant to the historic Music Modernization Act of 2018.

    In January 2021, The MLC began administering blanket mechanical licenses to eligible streaming and download services (digital service providers or DSPs) in the United States. The MLC will then collect the royalties due under those licenses from the DSPs and pay songwriters, composers, lyricists, and music publishers.

    The MLC has built a publicly accessible musical works database, as well as a portal that creators and music publishers can use to submit and maintain their musical works data. These tools will help ensure that creators and music publishers are paid properly.

Absolutely amazing

I have been following Rick for years and just gleaning. After a really challenging time, listening and watching Rick Barker and know that I have prepared myself to get to applying what I’ve learned as well as am determined to continue my music biz education.

That was a run on sentence yet you get my point. Thanks, Music Industry Blueprint.
