TIKTOK SIGNS DEAL WITH PUBLISHERS

The National Music Publishers’ Association and TikTok have signed a multi-year agreement to handle past uses of musical works and sets up a new partnership.

The agreement will give NMPA members the opportunity to opt in to a licensing framework that allows them to benefit from their works included on TikTok and is effective retroactively as of 5/1.

“Music is an important part of apps like TikTok which merge songs with expression and popularize new music while also giving new life to classic songs,” NMPA President & CEO David Israelite said. “This agreement respects the work of creators and gives them a way to be paid for their essential contributions to the platform.”
