Live365 Adds Global Music Rights (GMR) Licensing to Its Bundle

Live365 is excited to announce that Global Music Rights (GMR) coverage is now included in our radio licensing bundle – enabling any Live365 broadcaster on a royalty-included plan to stream music across GMR’s 81,000-song repertoire. GMR’s catalog includes works by major artists like The Weeknd, Bruce Springsteen, Lizzo, Bruno Mars, George Harrison, and more.

GMR is the U.S. performing rights organization (PRO) founded by music industry veteran Irving Azoff. It joins Live365’s collection of existing U.S. PRO relationships – including ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, SoundExchange, AllTrack, and Word Collections.

Live365 broadcasters can now legally play works by GMR artists, with all past performances of the GMR repertoire also covered. The licensing coverage addition comes at no extra cost and is included immediately.

“Great music is meant to be shared,” said Jason Stoddard, general manager of Live365, “and both GMR and Live365 pride ourselves on making it easier to do it. GMR provides a blanket license that makes it simple for digital broadcasters and others to play some of the most celebrated songs in history. Live365 is the only internet radio platform that automatically includes turnkey music licensing, so stations can focus on creating great programming instead of managing logistics like securing rights or reporting performances.”

We’re proud to expand our licensing offering to include GMR’s repertoire, as we continue to bring more coverage, features, and partnerships to Live365 to make it the most robust radio streaming platform on the internet. As always, you can make feature suggestions at any time at
