Music virtual-reality company MelodyVR announced a multi-year licensing deal with publisher Warner/Chappell yesterday.
The agreement covers VR distribution of the publisher’s catalogue of songs around “an extensive library of original content, throughout numerous European territories”.
MelodyVR has been signing a succession of deals with labels and collecting societies, but executive chairman Anthony Matchett said that publishers are also high on its priorities list.
“This deal which covers music from many of the world’s top songwriters, is key to the success of our platform, and we’re incredibly proud to have entered into a long-term partnership,” he said.
“With the launch of the MelodyVR platform approaching, we intend to enter even more publishing agreements, that in-turn, lay the foundations for both content exploitation on a global basis and our future success.”
