JukeANator Digital Jukebox Software

Announcing Support for ASCAP/BMI/SESAC for Paid Public Performance Licenses

ROYAL OAK, MI, Feb. 19th, 2011 -- Digital Jukebox Technologies, LLC. has recently entered into agreements with all three U.S. based Performing Rights Organizations: ASCAP, BMI and SESAC, authorizing the use of JukeANator digital jukebox software for public performances of music consistent with the terms of their licensing requirements. This is very significant because, since 2007, jukebox operators/bar owners with JukeANator digital jukeboxes have not been able to use a Jukebox License Office (JLO) agreement in order to have the permission to play music in public settings.

In other words, current U.S./Puerto Rico customers of JukeANator commercial now have a viable path to having legitimate digital jukeboxes and no longer need to be concerned about investigations concerning the use of "rogue digital jukeboxes", where operators are violating U.S. copyright law in one of two aspects:

  1. Unauthorized duplication/distribution of music (i.e. making copies of music onto multiple hard drives) with the proper mechanical rights
  2. Unauthorized public performances of music by either attempting to use a JLO license, having ASCAP/BMI/SESAC licensing without acknowledgement of their digital jukebox or having no paid public performance licensing at all.
It is strongly urged for all U.S./Puerto Rico customers of JukeANator commercial to either upgrade to the new "ASCAP/BMI/SESAC Mode" of JukeANator or discontinue use of JukeANator, lest they be subject to heavy penalties for violation of copyright law.
