Dear Publisher or Society:
The National Music Publishers’ Association (“NMPA”), The Harry Fox Agency (“HFA”) and YouTube are excited to offer to all independent music publishers, whether or not affiliated with HFA, and non-U.S. mechanical collection societies who have entered into reciprocal agreements with HFA, the opportunity to opt into a direct license agreement with YouTube that will be administered by HFA (the “YouTube Licensing Offer”).
