The MLC - Mechanical Licensing Collective
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. In January 2021, The MLC began administering blanket mechanical licenses to eligible streaming and download services (digital service providers or DSPs) in the United States. The MLC will then collect the royalties due under those licenses from the DSPs and pay songwriters, composers, lyricists, and music publishers. The MLC has built a publicly accessible musical works database, as well as a portal that creators and music publishers can use to submit and maintain their musical works data. These tools will help ensure that creators and music publishers are paid properly. https://www.themlc.com/

Founded in 1977 on the principle of bridging the gap between “the street and the elite,” Music Connection has grown from a popular print publication into a spectrum of products and services that address the wants and needs of musicians, the music tech community and industry support services.
Music Connection’s broad appeal encompasses the songwriter, producer, studio manager, home recordist, agent, attorney, publicist, label executive and, of course, the musician who’s looking for the informational edge that MC’s products and services deliver.
Long story short, we got tired of the old narrative of the entertainment industry. You know — the one where creatives believed they had to move to New York or LA in hopes of getting “put on”. The one where those same talented people left the business side of creativity in hands of people that didn’t care about their well-being, and forced them to make creative sacrifices all along the way, and left them overworked and underpaid in the end. We knew there was another way. https://recphilly.com
