Dispute Policy

The MLC’s Dispute Policy serves a central function in The MLC’s rights management operations. The Music Modernization Act (MMA) requires that The MLC establish policies and procedures for resolving musical works ownership disputes under the guidance of the Dispute Resolution Committee. The primary goal of the Dispute Resolution Policy is to create a process to facilitate timely and efficient resolution of disputes directly among the impacted parties. The policy also provides for the suspension of royalties pending resolution of disputes to avoid payment errors. To view the policy click here
