BMI tunes Web licensing system

Blanket fees reduced for smaller Internet sites

BMI has introduced a system that allows Web sites to complete copyright licensing agreements on demand with BMI 24 hours a day.

The Digital Licensing Center will make it easier for small Web site owners and managers to gain access to the performing rights to BMI’s repertoire, while allowing BMI to license those rights to many thousands of sites with greater cost effectiveness.

Through the DLC, sites will be able to gain access to public performance copyrights to BMI’s catalog of more than 3 million musical works.

As part of the licensing system, BMI also reduced the minimum fees that it charges smaller Web sites for blanket access to its repertoire. Under the rate structure, the lowest revenue-producing sites will pay BMI $250 for a year of unlimited clearance of the public performing rights to BMI’s repertoire.
