New York, NY (PRWEB) February 06, 2013
HFA, the nation’s leading provider of rights management, licensing, and royalty services for the music industry has once again collaborated with The Recording Academy® to license its on-demand listening service in support of the 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards®.
For the sixth year in a row, HFA provided The Recording Academy with licensing research and clearance services for the GRAMMY®-nominated tracks posted for member voter consideration. In the space of a few weeks, HFA identified and matched nominated tracks to the publishing ownership information and secured mechanical and synchronization licenses for both HFA-represented and non-represented material. HFA cleared GRAMMY-nominated content in 78 diverse GRAMMY categories including Latin, Jazz, Gospel, Pop, R&B, Blues, Folk, Reggae, World, Musical Theater, Children’s, Instrumentals, Classical and Chorals. HFA’s substantial database, sophisticated industry knowledge and significant publisher relationships facilitate the extremely time-sensitive process.
“To be involved in such an important aspect of the recording industry’s most prestigious award process is an honor,” said Michael Simon, President and CEO of HFA. “We are thrilled to once again support The Recording Academy as it prepares for Music's Biggest Night®.”
