What You Need to Know About Global Music Rights and the RMLC’s Lawsuit Against It

Join us for a webinar on Dec 14, 2016 at 3:00 PM EST.

 

Many broadcasters have been contacted by the Radio Music License Committee about its lawsuit against Global Music Rights (GMR), a new performing rights organization (PRO). GMR was founded in 2013 with the goal of extracting higher music license fees than those offered through other PROs like ASCAP and BMI. The RMLC alleges that GMR’s licensing practices are anticompetitive and violate the antitrust laws.

Have you been contacted? Do you have questions? Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth is hosting a webinar to discuss GMR and the RMLC’s lawsuit it on Wednesday, December 14 at 3:00 p.m. (ET).

The webinar will answer questions such as:

• What is GMR?
• Why did the RMLC sue GMR?
• What might happen with that lawsuit?
• What should I do now and be prepared to do in the future?

Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions. The webinar will be presented by FHH attorneys
Kevin Goldberg and Karyn Ablin, who between them have over 40 years of experience in copyright and music licensing.

The webinar is free. We encourage station employees to attend. 


FHH is presenting the webinar in cooperation with our friends at a number of state broadcasters’ associations, including those in Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Minnesota, South Carolina, Puerto Rico, Tennessee and Washington.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
