Have you been contacted by national music licensing agencies?

Representative Kevin Van De Wege (D–Sequim) is sponsoring HB 1763, regulating the behavior and disclosure of agents of the representatives of the music licensing agencies Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) and American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP). We are told that some cities who operate “music in the park” type events have been the subject of aggressive royalty collection attempts. If you have experienced this, please take a look at the bill and let Carl Schroeder know if it would be helpful.
