Thread-topic: [CRTech] GMR Music Rights

GMR has a title lookup where you can find out if a song is licensed by them.  You just type in the name of the song.  If nothing comes up, you’re good.  If something does come up it will be the name of the composer(s) and you will know that that song is out.  GMR, as mentioned previously, has also put out a list of artists they have signed.


I’ve read Mr. Wonder’s excellent article/open letter as well.  He is in a unique position. I suppose this will ultimately wind up in the courts.

WOW! A very well-written article! I sure hope it gets the attention of a whole slew of the people involved in the whole DISASTER known as "Music licensing"! The way it is now, is certainly NOT fair... to ANYONE!! :(

(I know a few artists/writers that see single-digit dollar annual checks for music that stations pay MUCH MORE than that for the licenses to play.)

Stevie Wonder (FM station owner as well as songwriter) recently wrote a commentary on GMR and raises some very good points.
