National Music Publishers’ Association President and CEO David Israelite announced that NMPA has negotiated the terms of a Rights Agreement with SoundCloud for the benefit of NMPA’s independent music publisher members. This Rights Agreement will enable independent publishers and songwriters to receive royalties through the monetization of content that contains their compositions on SoundCloud.
‘This agreement ensures that when SoundCloud succeeds financially, so do the songwriters whose content draws so many users to their site,’ said Israelite. ‘I am thrilled that we could agree on terms that will benefit both creators and the SoundCloud platform that has brought online music access and creativity to a new level.’
