WHAT: Universal Music Publishing Group cut a deal with Pandora that allows the service to license and thus play songs affiliated with the BMI collection agency. In return, Pandora will keep track of what it plays and provide that information along with royalty payments to UMPG. It hasn't been disclosed how much Pandora is paying. But it is likely that UMPG will pay a pro rata share of Pandora revenue. That would be somewhere between the 4.3% that Pandora paid out in the year that ended Jan.
