Authorization
I, as the BMI Account Holder or its legally authorized representative, authorize Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) to electronically
deposit royalty payments due the BMI Account Holder to the specified account. If money to which the Account Holder is not
entitled is directly deposited, I authorize BMI to direct the financial institution to return said funds. This authority will remain in
effect until a new authorization is filed with BMI, or until this authorization is revoked in writing. Any dispute submitted to BMI
by the Account Holder as to a representative's legal authority to receive its funds into this account shall be deemed by BMI to be
a revocation. I understand that this direct deposit of royalties will not change BMI’s records in any way in regards to ownership
and for whom BMI reports the royalties as income to tax authorities. If you wish to assign your royalties (transfer legal
ownership) to another person or entity, please complete the BMI Royalty Assignment Verification form and submit with all
required documents.
