April 12, 2023 @ 6:30 pm 8:30 pm

Are You An Independent Songwriter?

Do you have music streaming? Spend your evening learning how you can collect your digital mechanical royalties from The MLC.

There are many different ways you can generate revenue from your music, but do you know about the four types of royalties?

1. Mechanical Royalties

2. Performance Royalties

3. Synch Royalties

4. Print Music Royalties 

The Mechanical Licensing Collective (The MLC) is a nonprofit organization designated by the U.S. Copyright Office pursuant to the historic Music Modernization Act of 2018. They focus on collecting your digital mechanical royalties. Anyone who is entitled to receive digital audio mechanical royalties in the United States will need to become a “Member” of The MLC. This includes music publishers and administrators; self-administered songwriters, composers, and lyricists.
