Pro Music Rights.[3] is a performing rights organization that collects license fees on behalf of the artists, songwriters, composers, music publishers and other rights holders with whom it is affiliated and then distributes the license fees as royalties to those affiliates whose works have been publicly performed.[4]

Overview[edit]

Pro Music Rights was founded by Jake P. Noch in 2018.[5][6] As of 2020, it is the fifth such company to form in the US.

In 2019, the organisation filed a lawsuit against Spotify in conjunction with Sosa Entertainment, claiming that the latter were owed royalties for 550 million streams of its back catalogue.[7][8] In January 2020, Pro Music rights targeted YouTube and SoundCloud, seeking $150,000 of damages for each infringed work.[9]

The company has proposed a standardised Public Performance License.[10]

PRO MUSIC RIGHTS, WHICH SUED ‘THE ENTIRE MUSIC INDUSTRY’, APPEARS TO HAVE SETTLED WITH IHEARTRADIO, RHAPSODY, AND OTHERS[11]
