Can you not participate in Winamp Licensing when you are already registered with a P.R.O? That depends on your collecting society as the conditions vary a lot between different P.R.O's in different countries.

The P.R.O's in some countries are very flexible and allow you to indicate if you want to manage your licenses on Winamp without them (e.g. most P.R.O's in the US).

  • BMI : Get your direct license
  • ASCAP : Get your direct license.

Having a direct license means that no royalties will be collected by a performing rights organization (P.R.O) for this music as it pertains to licenses sold to Winamp's clients while having no PRO affiliation means that no royalties will be collected by a performing rights organization (P.R.O) for this music.

For a Winamp client, both translate to: If I purchase a license here, I won't have to pay an additional fee to my P.R.O. This makes your music more attractive for Clients.

Curious about how to get your direct license for BMI?

BMI is one of the few performing rights organizations (PROs) that allows their artists to be featured on Jamendo. As a BMI member, you have the right to be listed with BMI and simultaneously license performance rights directly to third parties like Winamp (Jamendo).

However, we kindly request that our members inform BMI of any such agreements.

To proceed, please email the following details to internationaladmin@bmi.com related to your agreement:

  • Party Name: Company
  • Included Compositions: All tracks in my catalog, past and future (or list your track names)
  • Term of Agreement: Date of account creation on Winamp
  • Territories Covered: Winamp offers the mentioned tracks for streaming and download for private use only. Winamp Licensing sub-licenses the mentioned tracks globally for synchronization licenses and in-store background music.

It may take a few days for BMI to respond to your request, so please be patient. Once you receive their response, please inform us, and we will proceed to reactivate your profile and tracks.

Curious about how to get your direct license for ASCAP?

Your contract with ASCAP allows you to participate on Jamendo Licensing. However, in order to do so legally, for Instore background music, you will need to fill out and send a form to ASCAP

Let me explain you how to do so:

  • Login to your Member Access account on ASCAP
  • Complete and submit the form titled Notice of Direct/Source Licensing.
  • The Direct License Form can be downloaded from the Messages section of Member Access.
  • Once in Messages, you can select Category: Statement and Payment Questions
  • Topic: Licensing – International.

You must notify ASCAP of:

  • The title of the work or works licensed 
  • The writer(s) and publisher(s) of the work(s).
  • The name and address of the licensee(s).

Subsequently, please respond to [Winamp] artists artists@winamp.com to confirm.
