The Harry Fox Agency has entered licensing deals with mobile entertainment provider Bullroarer and music download service MySongStore.
The deal with Bullroarer, which operates three consumer sites and the business portal O-Zone Wireless, covers ringtones and ringbacks.
The MySongStore deal covers mechanical licenses for full-length, permanent digital downloads to MySongStore artists. This arrangement allows the service to act as a licensee on behalf of their independent artists. Once they are licensed, they have the ability to record and sell downloads of cover songs directly from their Web site, MySpace page or virtually anywhere they can post a link.
HFA represents about 35,000 music publishers and songwriters in the United States.
