The Music Publishers’ Association has launched a new mediation service, offering its members the option to use more cost effective mediation rather than costly formal legal action if there are ever disputes over royalties, or other contractual or copyright issues. A mediator doesn’t make a ruling like a judge, but tries to help parties in dispute to reach a resolution.

MPA CEO Stephen Navin told CMU: “We at the MPA actively encourage our members to consider mediation as a way of resolving disputes, particularly where it serves to avoid court proceedings which can be both time-consuming and ruinously expensive. Mediation can result in a swift resolution, acceptable to both parties, and also helps to preserve the relationship between those parties”.

He added: “We have assembled a panel of individuals with enormous expertise in intellectual property and a vast amount of experience in the field. I believe that access to this service at a beneficial rate is a real advantage to MPA members”.
