The Mechanical Licensing Collective (The MLC) is partnering with the Recording Academy on a series of upcoming webinars with the Academy’s 12 Chapters and its new Songwriters & Composers Wing. These webinars will aim at educating the creative membership of each chapter on The MLC’s work.
Each of the 12 webinars will be locally tailored and hosted by representatives of The MLC, who will brief participants on the history behind mechanical licensing, why The MLC was created, how the organization fulfills its mission, the benefits of MLC Membership and more, with ample time for questions and answers.
“We are thrilled to work with the Academy on this webinar series, which builds on our ongoing efforts to reach as many potential MLC Members as possible, provide them with the information they need to join our organization and help position themselves to receive the digital audio mechanical royalties they have earned and deserve,” notes Kris Ahrend, CEO of The MLC.
“Academy members were so active in the passage of the Music Modernization Act, they should now benefit from The MLC that the Act created. We’re pleased to partner with The MLC to reach our membership of creators far and wide and ultimately get royalties into their hands,” says Chief Advocacy Officer of the Recording Academy Daryl P. Friedman.
Academy Chapter members will receive an invitation with a registration link in advance of the date of their respective webinar. The Nashville Chapter meeting will take place on May 17 at 2 p.m. CST.
