ICE is a unique offering that combines the expertise of the three owners within copyright administration and multi-territory online licensing and processing. ICE has been developed to deliver quality solutions to an increasingly international and borderless market and we are confident that ICE will continue setting new benchmarks for the services rightsholders and music users can expect in this market.
The collaborative effort in launching this new enhanced ICE is one that we are very proud of. ICE brings new economies of scale within reach of all rightsholders and will simplify the licensing market.
We are honoured to have been selected as the pilot digital service and are pleased to be the first licensee to sign an agreement with ICE. We look forward to building a constructive relationship with ICE and to the realization of operational efficiencies from the new platform and its benefits to composers and publishers.
We are delighted to continue deepening our relationship with music by partnering with ICE in a first-of-its-kind licensing deal. Facebook’s journey with music is just beginning and we look forward to working with ICE and songwriters to build a community together around music.
We have known the ICE team from the beginning in 2012 and love this idea of a direct and simple arrangement with them. It means we can be on top of and monitor all the major deals with DSPs while getting a much quicker, cost-effective and more efficient pay through. This is a great deal for Concord writers and composers.
