Broadcast Music License Agreements
CPB, NPR and PBS have negotiated music license agreements with ASCAP, BMI, the Harry Fox Agency and SESAC on behalf of the public broadcasting system. CPB pays the fees under each of these agreements, which cover all stations that receive Community Service Grants or that are members of NPR or PBS. No station action is necessary for these broadcast music license agreements. Stations will be contacted directly by ASCAP or BMI to provide music use reports under these agreements.These agreements run from January 1, 2018 through December 31, 2022. The SESAC agreement requires that, should a station provide reports to ASCAP or BMI, a copy of the report be sent to SESAC. There is no station reporting obligation required of stations under the Harry Fox Agency agreement.These agreements and licenses contain significant confidentiality provisions. You will be able to download each agreement after your station has registered.The ASCAP, BMI, Harry Fox Agency and SESAC broadcast licenses are applicable to both public television and public radio stations.

    Quoth Bill Milosz:

    'under ASCAP, BMI or the other common music and content
licensing institutions which allowed free use of all materials on
public air, with no requirement for individual stations to keep track
of what was played or for the station to pay any royalties.'
    ASCAP & BMI sell licenses to radio stations that give the
stations the right to play all the music whose artists have registered
with ASCAP (or BMI).  ASCAP (or BMI) pays royalties to its registrees.
There are other licenses for non-radio station users.

    Quoth bmi.com:

    'BMI uses performance monitoring data, continuously collected
on a large percentage of all licensed commercial radio stations, to
determine payable performances. This census information is factored to
create a statistically reliable and highly accurate representation of
feature performances on all commercial music format radio stations
throughout the country.'
