Harry Fox Agency Announces Licensing Deal With Cricket’s Muve Music
The Harry Fox Agency, Inc. (HFA), a leading provider of rights management, licensing, and royalty services for the music industry, has announced a licensing deal with Cricket for its Muve Music service. HFA will license Muve Music on behalf of HFA’s affiliated music publishers by clearing songs for limited digital downloads, ringtones and ringbacks, enabling a content-rich experience for Muve Music customers.
Muve Music is Cricket’s newest wireless addition. Muve Music is an unlimited music service designed specifically for the mobile phone. The service provides customers with unlimited access and downloads to songs, ringtones and ringback tones as part of a monthly unlimited flat-rate wireless plan. Music downloads directly to the user’s phone without a need for a computer, cables or credit card so consumers can access and manage their music everywhere they go. The service was recently launched in all Cricket markets and already is nearing the 100,000 subscriber mark.
Cricket’s relationship with HFA is a key strategic deal for the company, employing HFA’s award winning technology and song database to deeply broaden the issuance of volumes of song licenses for Muve Music. HFA’s deep ties to and long-standing relationships with more than 46,000 music publishers will support Muve Music’s growing library of licensed music.
