“The Big Machine Label Group and Dick Clark Productions announce that they have come to terms on a licensing agreement that approves their artists’ performances to stream post show and for re-broadcast on mutually approved platforms,” the statement read. “This includes the upcoming American Music Awards performances. It should be noted that recording artists do not need label approval for live performances on television or any other live media.
“Record label approval is only needed for contracted artists’ audio and visual recordings and in determining how those works are distributed,” the statement added. (RELATED: Scooter Braun, Scott Borchetta Deny Claims Taylor Swift Is Banned From Performing Her Music)
