Here’s a quick primer to help you understand the benefits of strategic licensing and the value of having Mood on your side.
The purpose of the United States Copyright Law is to protect the rights of artists, authors, composers and publishers to their work. When anyone plays or performs music in public, or distributes music in any form, they must have the rights to that music. If not, U.S. federal copyright laws call for severe legal and financial penalties. (Click HERE for more information about Music Licensing basics.]
