NEW YORK, NY (CelebrityAccess) – Songclip has entered into a licensing agreement with the National Music Publishers’ Association (NMPA), as reported Music week.
At the NMPA Annual Meeting at Lincoln Center in New York City on June 15, NMPA President and CEO David Israelite introduced the NMPA’s enforcement initiative to eradicate the supply of unlicensed music to their users. He also announced that Songclip would be a strategic partner facilitating licensing in the app market.
David Israelite said, “We are delighted to partner with Songclip in our efforts to ensure that apps use music in a legal and responsible way.”
John van Suchtelen, co-CEO and co-founder of Songclip said, “Apps want music. Artists want to be paid for their work. Its concept is simple but can be expensive, time consuming and complex to accomplish for both parties. We designed Songclip specifically to enable a simple and responsible partnership between apps and the music industry.
Working in partnership with UMG, UMPG, WMG, Warner Chappell, Kobalt, BMG and other rightsholders, Songclip’s licensing model aims to help app companies navigate the complexities of music licensing and streamline the marketing process.
