A performing rights society may not contract or offer to contract for the payment
of royalties by a proprietor unless, at the time of the offer or any subsequent time,
but not later than 72 hours before the execution of the contract, the performing rights
society provides the proprietor, in writing, the following:
(1) rates and terms of royalties to be collected under the contract;
(2) at the proprietor's request, the opportunity to review the most current available
list of the members or affiliates represented by the society;
(3) notice that the society will make available, on the proprietor's written request
and at the proprietor's sole expense, the most current available list of the copyrighted
musical works in the performing rights society's repertory; and
(4) notice that the society will identify the method for securing the list.
