National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) recently entered into a new partnership agreement with AllTrack Performing Rights, the fastest growing Performing Rights Organization (PRO) in the United States, to issue discounted music licenses to its members.
Proper music licensing is fundamental to any business that plays music or hosts live performances, whether at a dispensary, restaurant, or event. A PRO clears music for businesses and passes the resulting royalties on to songwriters and publishers each time their songs are played by any of the following means: audio streaming, TV or video streaming or broadcast, background music services, live performances, live DJs, karaoke, digital files, and jukeboxes.
AllTrack is dedicated to aggregating independent, professional creators and publishers across all major genres including hip hop, pop, rock, and country, and making the rights to their music available to businesses throughout the world.
“We are thrilled to partner with the NCIA, as they are the leading association to help the cannabis industry grow in each state and expand into the mainstream” said Brian Mullaney, Chief Revenue Officer for AllTrack. “Music has played a culturally significant role in the cannabis industry, and we are pleased to make our simple and affordable solution available for each NCIA member to license music rights properly.”
Businesses are required to have a performance license for the copyrighted songs played in their establishments that the public can hear and enjoy. Through this partnership, AllTrack will seamlessly offer each NCIA member the blanket protection they require under United States Copyright Law. AllTrack’s tech forward approach makes the process of an NCIA member obtaining a blanket license easier than ever and provides the required protections that cannot be obtained from background music or other subscription services.
Businesses are required to have a performance license to play copyrighted songs in their establishments that the public can hear and enjoy. AllTrack will provide a 15% discount to each NCIA member for their annual licensing fee. In addition, an incremental percentage will be given back to the NCIA in support of the services they provide to their membership base.
NCIA is the oldest, largest, and most inclusive trade association representing legal cannabis businesses. NCIA’s membership is composed of hundreds of forward-thinking businesses dedicated to ensuring that small cannabis businesses have a seat at the table in Washington, D.C. rather than just the wealthiest few.
NCIA is leading the charge to protect the legal cannabis industry, defend our state laws, and advance federal policy reforms favorable to the industry as a whole. Successful businesses are joining NCIA every day to become stronger, smarter, and more prosperous by working together to defend the responsible cannabis industry and create more opportunities for small businesses in our sector.
