TIP TUESDAY: Mechanical Licensing Collective via Mark Pearson From ARC Law Group

For this week’s TIP TUESDAY Mark Pearson from ARC Law Group has an update on the MLC. What is the MLC? What does it do?

What is the MLC? The Mechanical Licensing Collective (MLC) is a nonprofit organization created in 2019 by the Music Modernization Act (MMA) to administer blanket mechanical licences to eligible streaming services and pay the resulting royalties to songwriters, composers, lyricists, and music publishers.

If you have any other questions or concerns about The Mechanical Licensing Collective, feel free to send ARC Law Group a message at info@arclg.com.
