Music Reports, Inc. will administer U.S. song lyrics licensing and royalty
accounting for subtitled song lyrics appearing on TuneWiki's social music player for mobile phones.

As part of the deal it cut with TuneWiki, Music Reports will use its Songdex database to identify and report lyric usage, and pay royalties to the appropriate publishers.

“Our relationship with TuneWiki enables us to enter the song lyrics rights administration business for the very first time,” Music Reports senior VP of business affairs and business development Les Watkins said in a statement.
