ASCAP is an agent representative for its members (music publishers,
composers, songwriters, and lyricists) which issues nonexclusive
use licenses (called performance licenses) to users of music (e.g.,
radio stations, network television, MTV, HBO, cable networks,
stadiums, arenas, concert halls, nightclubs, hotels, ballrooms,
dance studios, exercise studios, restaurants, casinos, malls,
skating rinks, in flight entertainment, and other commercial users
of background music) for the non-dramatic public performance of
the copyrighted works of such members.
Performance licenses are granted to music users on a "blanket"
basis, or on a "per program" basis (e.g., for single
concert performances which are issued to the promoters or producers
renting the concert facility). See Cross-links: PERFORMANCE RIGHTS SOCIETY,
