    NACA Statement on Global Music Rights Negotiations
    Category: General Promotions and Information

  • Members: All
    Regions: All
    Target Audience: All
    NACA in a collaborative effort lead by NACUBO and the American Council on Education issue the following statement: For more than 30 years, the National Association for Campus Activities (NACA), the National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO) and the American Council on Education (ACE) have collaborated to develop model agreements with performance-rights organizations (“PROs”) that association institutional members and the PROs may use to facilitate the negotiation of blanket performance rights licenses. Examples include model agreements that the coalition have developed with:
    • the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP),
    • Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI), and
    • SESAC (originally the Society of European Stage Authors & Composers).

    These model licenses–which are informed by periodic negotiations undertaken by NACUBO and ACE with ASCAP, BMI and SESAC–allow a college or university to pay an annual fee to those PROs to cover the public playing or performing on campus and at certain types of off-campus functions and events organized by affiliated groups, of music in the organizations’ respective catalogs. In 2014, a fourth PRO emerged: Global Music Rights (GMR). It was formed by Azoff MSG Entertainment. Discussions among GMR, NACUBO and ACE during 2017-18 about developing a GMR model license for the campus environment ultimately proved unsuccessful. Therefore, if a college or university wishes to have music in GMR’s repertory publicly played or performed on its campus, it may need to enter into discussions directly with GMR in order to arrive at agreed-upon terms of a GMR license. Use of Copyrighted Music on College and University Campuses, a joint report by ACE and NACUBO in 2013–a year prior to GMR’s creation, provides a general overview of the legal issues relating to music copyright. The report should not be used as a substitute for the advice of informed legal counsel.
