The MLC’s policies serve a central function in The MLC’s rights management operations. The Music Modernization Act (MMA) requires that The MLC establish policies and procedures for resolving musical works ownership disputes under the guidance of the Dispute Resolution Committee. The primary goal of MLC policies is to create a process to facilitate timely and efficient resolution of disputes directly among the impacted parties.
