Mission and Principles

Our Mission

The MLC will strive to ensure songwriters, composers, lyricists, and music publishers receive their mechanical royalties from streaming and download services in the U.S. accurately and on time.


Our Principles

The MLC is founded on four guiding principles that underpin our work, our team, and our operations:

We strive for EXCELLENCE.

We set clear standards for our team. We measure our performance regularly. We value collaboration, innovation, and continuous improvement. By doing so, we will lead and shape the future of the music industry.

We embrace DIVERSITY.

We are passionate about building a diverse and inclusive team of people with different backgrounds, views, and experiences. We know this makes our team stronger and better enables us to serve the needs of our diverse Membership.

We are committed to TRANSPARENCY.

By approaching our work with integrity, communicating honestly, and welcoming feedback, we will build and maintain the trust of those we serve.

SERVICE is at the heart of everything we do.

We recognize that each of our Members is unique. We approach each interaction with enthusiasm and empathy. We define success one person at a time.
