If you are a publisher or a self-administered songwriter, composer or lyricist who received an email invite from HFA to opt-in to sharing data with The MLC, that means your banking, tax and contact information will be transferred over without having to do it manually. Once your account is ready to be created, you’ll receive an email to The MLC Portal to continue the process. 

  • Please note: Your works will be available in the public search regardless, but taking this step migrates your account information over – you will just need to confirm the payment and tax information when you log into The MLC account. 


You are able to choose this opt-in option at any time by logging into the HFA Agreement Portal, which can be found in your email, and authorizing the transfer of your information.
