2018 Small Business Music Licensing Survey

Each year small business bars and restaurants receive their annual music licensing bills from PROs (ASCAP, BMI and SESAC). Fees vary all across the country and nobody really knows how these fees are calculated and how aggressively the PROs collect from these business.

For these reasons, the Fairness in Music Licensing Coalition collects stories and data about how music licensing fees impact small businesses. The more data we collect, the more light we can shed on this issue.

We keep this information confidential and only use the information to analyze how small businesses across the United States are impacted by blanket music licensing fees.

Please take a moment and either share your experiences or complete the full 2018 Music Licensing Survey. We’ve learned a lot from your feedback. Thank you for your continued support to bring fairness to music licensing for small businesses!
