Congrats to performing rights organization SESAC, which is celebrating its 80th anniversary this year.
PAT COLLINS, SESAC's President/COO said: ”Since 1930 SESAC has been devoted to the interests of the creative community and increasing the performances of their copyrights. We are very proud of what SESAC has accomplished over the past 80 years and we look forward to the future which, through advanced technologies, will bring even greater access to music and will aid in even more timely and accurate royalty payments to copyright owners. Over the coming years while technology continues to transform the delivery mechanisms for entertainment, intellectual property will become more important and further ingrained into the social fabric and SESAC plans to remain front and center of these innovations to provide world class services to intellectual property owners.”
The list of artists who have performed SESAC-affiliated songs include REBA McENTIRE, JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, USHER, BEYONCE, U2 and many more.
