MediaNet, the back-end of such digital services like Mog/Beats and Songza, is expanding its offerings by providing mechanical rights licensing and administration.
MediaNet currently relies on the Harry Fox Agency (HFA) to supply publishing licenses for the master rights it provides to services. But now the company is adding research staff so it can conduct direct licensing with publishers not affiliated with HFA. It also plans to offer those services to digital music service providers that do not use MediaNet as their back-end.

First B2B music technology provider to offer 360° rights administration
January 24, 2013 – MediaNet, a leading digital music catalog, metadata and ecommerce technology provider for music services around the world, is expanding its administration services offerings beyond its current master rights management and catalog fulfillment to cover the complete spectrum of rights. MediaNet currently offers global master fulfillment and administration for a catalog of more than 25 million tracks, to operators of streaming services, apps and download stores. This new offering enables MediaNet to take over the rights administration, reporting, and payment processes related to mechanical and performance licensing, so its music service and record label clients are properly licensed, and remain up to date with the reporting and payment terms of those licenses. MediaNet will be the first white label music service provider to offer comprehensive, scalable master and publishing rights administration.
“By expanding our administration services, MediaNet will become the only company offering a complete rights and administration package for digital music service clients,” said Frank Johnson, CEO of MediaNet. “We look forward to working with publishers, PRO’s, record companies and digital service providers to create a solution that is beneficial for everyone in the music ecosystem.”
“MediaNet pioneered content management for digital music, and over the past decade, has developed one of the most sophisticated rights administration infrastructures in the industry,” said Larry Miller, Executive Vice President and General Manager of MediaNet. “Now, by offering both master-side and publishing rights administration services, we can remove cost and friction for any company that wants to offer digital music services, allowing them to focus on creating, releasing and scaling brilliant products and services rather than allocating in-house resources to copyright administration.”Miller will be speaking on rights administration and related issues as the business keynote at the International Association of Entertainment Lawyers (IAEL) meeting at Midem on Sunday, January 27, at 11 a.m. in Conference Level 01 at the Palais des Festivals.
Launched in 2001 by the music industry as one of the first online music services, MediaNet (www.mndigital.com) maintains the largest B2B rights-managed catalog of digital music in the world, with more than 25 million tracks available to power streaming music apps, subscription services, download stores and more through its API and comprehensive set of music commerce applications.
