The Television Music License Committee (TVMLC) is a non-profit trade association that represents full-power, commercial television stations in the United States and its territories in negotiations for music performing rights licenses that stations sign with the two largest Performing Rights Organizations (PRO’s), ASCAP and BMI. We also design the method of allocating industry-wide fees among all of the stations licensed by ASCAP, BMI and SESAC (the vast majority of local television stations), subject to agreement of the PRO or court approval and then we calculate the fees billed to each individual station. After stations sign their individual agreements, we try to help resolve problems between stations and all of the PRO’s. We are the station’s advocate.
