Lyrics aggregator LyricFind has announced an agreement with 63 UK music publishers put together via PMLL, the sheet music collecting society run by the UK’s Music Publishers Association. The deal will bring those publishers’ respective catalogues into LyricFind’s global lyric licensing system.
The lyrics firm says that the MPA will also encourage other publishers in its membership – or who are allied to PMLL or UK mechanical rights society MCPS – to consider opting in to direct licensing agreements with LyricFind.
Says LyricFind’s SVP International Publishing: “We are excited to work with these important UK publishers and songwriters in major new territories and to enable them to legally distribute, exhibit, and monetise their lyrics through our 60+ platform partners”.
PMLL’s GM Viki Smith adds: “Lyrics provide a new revenue stream for the members we represent. Publishers need these new approaches and I look forward to supporting them as they explore the services LyricFind has to offer”.
