Business Music Inc. (BMI)

Marking the first ten years of BMI’s successful partnership with trade associations, the program is moving on-line with simplified steps to receive discounts on licensing the world’s favorite music. More than $8 million has been saved by participating associations and their membership since the program began ten years ago.  The numbers continue to grow, with more than 58 associations in the food & beverage market currently participating, representing more than 13,000 licensed members.  The original program has expanded to include more business categories such as the fitness industry, healthcare, bowling centers, and skating rinks. 

“As the number of association partnerships has grown, BMI is even more committed to maintaining the longevity of the program for association members and our customers,” said Tom Annastas, BMI Vice President, Licensing. 

Beginning January 1, 2010, participating association members will receive a 5% discount for their membership and another 5% discount when they license and/or pay in full online at www.BMI.com/ede. In addition, they will receive another 10% discount for timely payment.  When licensing or paying online, customers will receive all of the applicable discounts as they move through the licensing process. 

“We have learned that a growing number of our customers prefer doing business on-line at their own convenience,” said Annastas.  “We’ve improved our systems to simplify the licensing process and assist them.” 

Broadcast Music, Inc.® (BMI) is an American performing right organization that represents more than 400,000 songwriters, composers and music publishers in all genres of music and more than 6.5 million works. BMI has represented the most popular and beloved music from around the world for 70 years. The U.S. corporation collects license fees from businesses that use music, which it then distributes as royalties to the musical creators and copyright owners it represents.
