Forbes: The MLC Adds Student Ambassador Program

Mechanical Licensing Collective Adds Student Ambassador Program

The Mechanical Licensing Collective has launched a Student Ambassador program to complement its existing Educator Ambassador program. The programs designate qualified participants who commit to sharing information about The MLC with their students or peers as official MLC Ambassadors.

The MLC was designated by the US Register of Copyrights in July 2019 pursuant to the Music Modernization Act of 2018, and is responsible for administering the new blanket compulsory license for the use of musical works by digital music services. As of January 2021, mechanical royalties from streaming in the US will be processed and paid out by the MLC at no cost to songwriters or music publishers.
