SESAC ANTITRUST SUIT AGREEMENT

When: Thursday, December 11
Time: 3:30pm - 4:45pm Eastern
Cost: $74 members; $94 non-members ($59 MFM Corporate Member*)

Speakers: Alix Steier and Will Hoyt, Television Music License Committee

Join us for MFM's Distance Learning Seminar being presented by TMLC experts who will discuss the settlement agreement in the SESAC Antitrust suit recently filed in U.S. District Court in New York. This case was filed in 2009 by three station groups, Meredith, Scripps and Hoak (now part of Gray Television), as a class action on behalf of all local television stations. The suit asserted that since 2008, when the last industrywide agreement with SESAC expired, SESAC violated federal antitrust laws, resulting in overcharges to stations who were forced to accept SESAC’s terms or risk being sued for copyright infringement. The settlement avoids further expense and the uncertain outcome of a trial and possible appeals. This distance learning seminar will give you highlights and details of this very significant and positive agreement.

How the Audio Distance Learning Works...

 

Step 1: On the date and time of the Distance Learning, you'll call a special number. You will receive this number in an email from the MFM Office (Debi Borden) the day prior to the call.

Step 2: An operator will answer your call and ask you to provide your unique PIN, your name and company, which were included in the email from the MFM Office the day prior to the call.

Step 3: The operator will connect you to the call. Sit back and listen to the speakers – your line is muted. Q&A will be offered during or at the end of the call. The operator will give instructions on how to ask your questions.

 

The registration fee paid pays for only 1 phone line/web login. If you share the dialing information with others, you will be responsible for paying for any additional lines used by your company or individuals associated with your company.
