STATEMENT: BIG MACHINE LABEL GROUP AND DICK CLARK PRODUCTIONS

The Big Machine Label Group informed Dick Clark Productions today that they have agreed to grant all licenses of their artists’ performances to stream post show and for re-broadcast on mutually approved platforms. It should be noted that recording artists do not need label approval for live performances on television or any other live media.  Record label approval is only needed for contracted artists' audio and visual recordings and in determining how those works are distributed.
