[Video] Artist Managers Connect presents AMA About The Mechanical Licensing Collective with Dae Bogan

Dae Bogan conducts a Facebook Live “Ask Me Anything” regarding The Mechanical Licensing Collective in the Artist Managers Connect Facebook group on January 20th, 2021. Watch

Is the blanket license royalty rate determined after the majors have negotiated their license with the DSPs?

Does registration with the MLC supersede registrations with HFA and MRI?

If a song was previously licensed under the voluntary license, does it now have a secondary revenue to coming from the blanket license, or do you have to choose one path over the other?

Will the MLC establish reciprocal mechanical collections with foreign mechanical CMOs such as MCPS and AMCOS?

Watch me answer these questions and many more from artist managers in my “Ask Me Anything About The Mechanical Licensing Collective”

[Podcast] Creative Innovators Podcast

In this podcast with Gigi Louisa Johnson, I discuss some of the key events in my youth and early adulthood that laid the foundation for my adventures as a serial entrepreneur and music rights professional.

Happy New Year! To kick off 2021, please enjoy our free online creative career courses at https://NextCareer.me AND enjoy this week’s Creative Innovators podcast with the amazing Dae Bogan. Link to listen: https://lnkd.in/gequU5B

Dae Bogan shares how he sees solutions and “warps” them into business ideas — which is both a blessing and a curse. He began with selling cakes in middle school and organizing bus tours in high school from Cleveland, OH to New York. From his early history in acting, singing, and creating and producing events, he moved into a long series of start-ups (including putting gogo dancers in store windows) before moving into various endeavors in music tech. Dae has started and sold a variety of cloud-based ventures as well as mentored founders of other startups. Dae shares how he now is bringing those diverse skills to bear as head of Third-Party Partnerships with The Music Licensing Collective. The MLC works with music publishers and artists to collect and distribute their streaming royalties.

What I’ve Been Up To At The Mechanical Licensing Collective

Today, The Mechanical Licensing Collective (The MLC) announced that it has partnered with software companies in the music rights space.

This is the first significant announcement that sheds light on the work I’ve been doing in my role as Head of Third-Party Partnerships at The MLC.

I am thrilled to announce the addition of four new partners to The MLC’s Data Quality Initiative (DQI); an initiative that enables music rightsholders to assess in bulk the state of their catalog data as it appears at a music rights organization.

The addition of Blokur, EXACTUALS LLC, Music Data Services, and TuneRegistry to the DQI demonstrates The MLC’s commitment to engage companies and organizations at all levels of the music rights ecosystem to ensure that songwriters and music publishers have the information and resources they need to more efficiently administer their musical works in the United States. These four companies are aligned with The MLC’s intent to improve the ways in which music data is managed between rightsholders and a music rights organization.

I look forward to announcing more partnerships across a variety of initiatives in the months and years to come as we develop The MLC into a leading 21st century music rights organization and improve the accuracy with which songwriters and music publishers are accounted to and paid US digital audio mechanical royalties.

[Rewind] On This Day Last Year I Spoke At The Library Of Congress

On this day last year, at the invitation of the Honorable Steve Ruwe, a United States Copyright Royalty Judge, I went to Washington, D.C. to participate in the U.S. Copyright Office’s Unclaimed Royalties Study Symposium and speak at The Library Congress on strategies for the effective outreach and engagement of music publishers and independent songwriters. A few months later I joined The Mechanical Licensing Collective as its Head of Third-Party Partnerships to develop and execute strategies to reach and empower music publishers and independent songwriters, composers, and lyricists.

#TBT Reflecting On Being Named A Billboard 2019 Digital Power Player And Looking To The Future Of Music Rights

Dae Bogan named to Billboard’s Digital Power Players 2019 list published in Billboard’s 125th anniversary issue November 2019

Exactly one year ago, I was named a Billboard 2019 Digital Power Player in recognition of my work at the intersection of music rights and technology.

Dae Bogan named to Billboard’s 2019 Digital Power Players

As the founder and CEO of two music rights software companies—TuneRegistry and RoyaltyClaim—I empowered independent music creators and rights-holders from over 40 countries with tools to protect and administer their copyrights in the United States and to uncover unclaimed royalties and music licenses around the world.

I started my career in the music industry as an independent artist and self-published songwriter, then evolved into an advocate of music creators as first an artist manager and eventually the owner/operator of an independent record label and independent music publishing company. Later, I pivoted from being hands-on the music to conceptualizing and developing technological solutions to address some of the challenges I faced while wearing the many hats that I had worn.

Today, I am writing yet another chapter in my career book as the Head of Third-Party Partnerships at The Mechanical Licensing Collective and as a Lecturer of Musicology (music industry entrepreneurship) at the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music. At these organizations I play a new role in supporting music creators from the earliest start of their careers through the legacy of their musical works.

As I reflect on my passion and look to the future I am excited to imagine how I can contribute in some meaningful way to the careers and livelihoods of thousands of music creators; especially independent artists and self-published songwriters.
