Kris Ahrend of the Mechanical Licensing Collective [Music Biz Weekly Podcast Interview]

Kris Ahrend from The Mechanical Licensing Collective joins co-hosts Michael Brandvold and Jay Gilbert on the Music Biz Weekly podcast.

The MLC is a nonprofit organization designated by the U.S. Copyright Office after passage of the historic Music Modernization Act of 2018

In January, The MLC began administering blanket mechanical licenses to eligible streaming and download services (digital service providers or DSPs) in the United States. The MLC will collect the royalties and pay songwriters, composers, lyricists, and music publishers.

The MLC has also built a publicly accessible musical works database, as well as a portal that creators and music publishers can use to submit and maintain their musical works data. These tools will help ensure that creators and music publishers are paid properly.
