Music virtual-reality startup MelodyVR has announced four new licensing agreements, focusing on the publishing world. The deals include UMPI (part of Universal Music Publishing Group); Sacem; Ascap and BMI.
“As MelodyVR continues to expand, these four music licensing deals enhance our opportunities for content creation and distribution on a global basis. Following a successful 2018 and with an exciting 2019 ahead, these agreements extend our position as the world’s only licensed VR music platform,” said CEO Anthony Matchett in a statement.
The news follows MelodyVR’s recent announcement that it would be launching its VR concerts app for an upcoming Oculus VR headset from Facebook.
The company launched its original app last May. It also recently appointed a chief commercial officer, former Shazam exec Miles Lewis.
