Who We Are:
As the trade association representing American music publishers, every day NMPA aggressively fights for the rights of music publishers and their songwriting partners. Our actions have resulted in nearly a half-billion dollars in judgments and distributed funds through litigation and settlements; over $280 million distributed through late fee settlements; as well as unprecedented model licensing agreements over music video rights and direct licensing practices. As music increasingly defines a new digital frontier, and traditional revenue models shift, NMPA’s work is more important than ever.
Simply put, NMPA promotes, protects and advances the interests of music publishers and songwriters in matters relating to domestic and global protection of copyrights. When you join NMPA, you help shape the future of our industry.
