TVMLC and ASCAP agree on interim arrangement.
TVMLC and ASCAP have agreed that, until final agreement is reached, the licenses that expired on December 31, 2016 will continue in effect under an interim license. This means that the blanket license fee allocated to your station in 2016 will continue during this interim period and you will pay the same fees that you paid in 2016. This also applies to the adjustable blanket license (ABL) option that some stations have elected. The bills you will receive from ASCAP will reflect these rates. These interim fees are subject to retroactive adjustment when final license fees and terms are set.
