Pandora is partnering with Music Reports to manage the licensing and royalty administration for its upcoming on-demand service.
Transparency around licensing and compensation has been an ongoing challenge for the music industry, and by partnering with Music Reports, Pandora believes it’s bringing more openness to publishers and music makers.
Music Reports intends to provide open deal terms and reporting transparency through its online digital rights marketplace.
“Music Reports is in a unique position to reach every active publisher in the market, ensuring Pandora can offer them all the opportunity to participate in these new services, on the same terms. This is another huge step forward for music licensing in the United States,” says Bill Colitre, Vice President and General Counsel of Music Reports, Inc.
