Popular ‘Music Publishing And Licensing’ discussions
On occasion we like to share what’s happening in our Music Publishing And Licensing group on Linkedin. Currently as of August 19, 2014 we have a total of 15,426 members.
Music Publishing And Licensing group background
Music Publishing And Licensing is a private group established and managed by LicenseQuote in April, 2008 and though we are selective in screening membership requests, we are still adding an average of 35 new members per week for a growth rate of about 2,000 per year. We work hard (round the clock) to prevent and screen out spam and blatant self-promotion, as we post fairly strict but fair guidelines for all existing and new members to follow.
Moderation of discussions and comments
New discussions must be approved, so they go into a submission queue to be reviewed before being posted on the main Discussion page or sometimes on the Jobs page, if more appropriate there. Everyone can post Comments, though we also moderate them and respond if they are tagged as spam or off-topic, etc. This approach maximizes interesting and useful discussions while keeping spam and other distractions to an absolute minimum.
