Music Licensing

Enrollment for the 2020 Music Licensing Program is CLOSED. Enrollment for a 2021 license will open August 1, 2020.

ARVC member-parks are turning music into money at their parks—with karaoke contests and pool parties that drive engagement with campers who purchase tickets to participate. But did you know if you play music at your park, you must have a license to avoid copyright law infringement?

This annual license combines the benefit of coverage for both ASCAP and BMI at a drastically reduced rate. To complete your coverage, you can also sign up for a discounted SESAC license.

Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to secure the right music license -- at our exclusive rates -- that will help protect your park from liability and costly fines.

REMINDER: Open enrollment for the 2020 combined music license will begin August 1, 2019 and end December 2, 2019 to cover January 1, 2020 – December 31, 2020.**  If a park plays copyrighted music at their park without a license from ASCAP, BMI or SESAC, they could be liable for damages set by federal statute that can range from $750 to $30,000. In addition, if a jury finds that the infringement was 'willful,' the damages assessed could run as high as $150,000 per song plug legal costs.
