“We appreciate that ASCAP and BMI recognize that there is a problem in the current music licensing system. But what they are proposing is not a complete solution. Only Congress has the ability to create a neutral, reliable and comprehensive database. That’s why the MIC Coalition strongly supports the Transparency in Music Licensing and Ownership Act introduced by Congressman Sensenbrenner (R-WI) and Suzan DelBene (D-WA).”


“Sure, all four PROs claim their proprietary online databases are available to everyone. But, all four explicitly state in their terms and conditions that users cannot rely on or make licensing decisions based on the information. Simply put, users cannot count on the information in any of the databases to be accurate, actionable, or up-to-date.”
