ASCAP and Bmi Launches Collaboration Called MusicMark

ASCAP and BMI, the nation's two large performance rights organizations, have launched a first-of-its-kind collaboration called MusicMark, designed to make song copyrights simpler and more efficient for songwriters and publishers to register. Under MusicMark, the performance rights organizations will share resources, including staff and business tools, but the collaboration is not a formal joint venture. SOCAN, another performance rights organization, also is involved in the collaboration, but SESAC is not. MusicMark will allow members to register songs through a single interface, even if the song was co-written by writers represented by different PROs. Once a work is submitted, the data is sent to all three societies in the partnership. Currently, publishers use several different programs to register works, and with the rise in popularity of co-writing, a single song can involve multiple publishing companies. Publishers have asked for a more efficient way to register music, and MusicMark is a response to those requests.
