The February 20 Saturday Workshop will start at 1pm.
SPECIAL PRESENTATION FOR FEBRUARY MEETING!
The MECHANICAL LICENSING COLLECTIVE
"YOUR ROYALTIES IN THE DIGITAL AGE"
with SPECIAL GUEST, MAURICE RUSSELL
MLC HEAD OF RIGHTS MANAGEMENT
**MLC PRESENTATION and Q&A: 1pm - 2pm**
**The Mechanical Licensing Collective was designated by the United States Copyright Office, and created by U.S. music publishers and songwriters (backed by the National Music Publishers’ Association, the Nashville Songwriters Association International and the Songwriters of North America), as a new entity to license and administer rights under the Music Modernization Act which was signed into law in 2018. The law ensures that the mechanical rights of songwriters and music publishers are properly licensed and royalties fully paid by digital services, and it improves how those royalty rates are determined. It also establishes a publicly accessible mechanical rights database
to ensure accurate, transparent copyright ownership information.
(From the article, “Mechanical Licensing Collective Names Kris Ahrend As Ceo”, written by Jessica Nicholson
that appeared in MusicRow, January 15, 2020.)
Randy Brown and Jon Iger will be hosting the meeting.
Randy and Jon have taught songwriting at the MIM

in many movies and TV shows. Jon has also had major label cuts
on MCA and Capitol Records.
