Voluntary GMR Interim License Agreement Deadline is January 31, 2017

Another reminder. New performance rights organization Global Music Rights (GMR), embroiled in copyright litigation demanding royalty payments for artists it represents, has offered an interim license agreement to commercial stations that wish to avoid liability. But you must have entered into that agreement by today January 31, 2017. It’s only good through September 30, 2017, and the rate GMR decides to charge might be too much or too little. GMR claims to represent certain country, pop and rap artists, some of whom are named on their website list of artists.
