Music Rights and licensing
The City has blanket agreements with ASCAP and BMI for the legal use of music. We also require written consent from the artists before featuring their work.
When you link to CD Baby, iTunes and Amazon from Seattle OnHold and buy something, a portion of your sale (7% up to $1/CD sold) goes to the city of Seattle to advance arts education. The artist’s share of the sale is not touched. There is no cost for these retail partnerships and artists are not required to use these retailers.
