I’ve written several entries on the risks that ROCs take when copyrighted music is played in their communities.
Last year, the National Association of RV Parks & Campgrounds ("ARVC") introduced a new benefit for its members–a combined music licensing agreement with two of the three major music license companies, ASCAP and BMI.
In connection with this new benefit, the ARVC prepared a very concise and informational "FAQ" sheet for its members.
While most of Florida’s ROCs are not members of the ARVC, I hope you’ll find that FAQ sheet–aptly titled "What You Need to Know About Music Licensing" educational and useful.
On last Saturday’s "Community Matters" radio show, I discussed hurricane preparedness with Ed McCrane, Sarasota County’s Emergency Management chief, and then spoke with State Representative Mike Fasano about the need to change the policy of the Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund, which currently may exclude some condominium developments from the Fund’s reinsurance coverage–which has the potential to substantially and negatively impact condominium associations and unit owners throughout the state. The podcast of that show is now available at the "Community Matters" site.
