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.
