Music And Webcasting Licenses Available Through ICCFA
STERLING, VA (November 10, 2015) – Music licenses for calendar year 2016 are now available through the International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association.
ICCFA is offering licensing with ASCAP, BMI and SESAC for $263 per property through January 31, 2016, with no additional fees or membership required. Licensing directly with ASCAP, BMI and SESAC would cost more than $600 per location.
For any company that broadcasts funeral services over the Internet, an added $48 webcasting license will be necessary to be in full compliance with copyright laws.
After January 31, the rate will increase to $276. It is the lowest price in the industry, even lower than NFDA because membership in ICCFA is not required. You do not need to be a member of ICCFA to purchase your music licenses through ICCFA.
Music licensing is the law. Failure to obtain a license can be costly, and fines of up to $30,000 for each song can be incurred. If your company hosts live or recorded performances of copyrighted music, the copyright owners make it a legal requirement to pay an annual licensing fee.
To purchase your music license and to learn more information on music and webcasting licensing, visit www.iccfa.com/music or call 1.800.645.7700.
Founded in 1887, the International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association is the only international trade association representing all segments of the cemetery, cremation, funeral and memorialization profession. Its membership is composed of more than 9,100 rooftop locations and 19,000 professionals in the cemetery, funeral home and crematory industries, as well as supplier and related businesses worldwide.
