Data Quality Initiative

For Publishers, Administrators, Self-Administered Songwriters and CMOs: Data Quality Initiative (DQI)

The MLC created the Data Quality Initiative (DQI) to provide a streamlined way for music publishers, administrators, self-administered songwriters and foreign collective management organizations (CMOs) to compare large schedules of their musical works’ data against The MLC’s data. Through the DQI, The MLC will provide participants with reports that highlight the discrepancies between the two sets of data so that they can more easily address those discrepancies and improve the quality of The MLC's data.

The MLC has begun working directly with a number of music publishers, self-administered songwriters and administrators to on-board them into the initiative. The MLC is also working with software vendors to help them enhance their platforms to enable users of their systems to participate in the initiative. The MLC looks forward to working with other music publishers, self-administered songwriters, administrators, CMOs and software system vendors interested in participating in The MLC’s Data Quality Initiative.
