FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 26, 2017

Today, both ASCAP and BMI announced their intention to develop a music licensing database. While they acknowledge problems with the current music licensing system, their proposal misses the mark.

Below is a quote from the MIC Coalition: 
We appreciate that ASCAP and BMI recognize that there is a problem in the current music licensing system, but what they are proposing is not a complete solution. Only Congress has the ability to create a neutral, reliable and comprehensive database. That’s why the MIC Coalition strongly supports “Transparency in Music Licensing and Ownership Act” introduced by Congressman Sensenbrenner (R-WI) and Suzan DelBene (D-WA).
