Dept. of Justice Mandate: Despite Outcry from Publishers, Digital Music Services Don't See What the Big Deal Is

Dept. of Justice Mandate: Despite Outcry from Publishers, Digital Music Services Don't See What the Big Deal Is | S.A.C. Resources | Scoop.it
As publishers and songwriters continue to sharply criticize the U.S. Dept. of Justice's mandate, expected to be officially released soon, that performance licenses for music follow a rule of 100 percent licensing, which allows any songwriter to license the entire song and not, in what's called fractionalized licensing, just their portion of it as has been the case for some time.
