ATTENTION All Cheer and Dance Coaches and Administrators:

Recent enforcement efforts by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) have highlighted the need for compliance with US Copyright Law.  The Massachusetts School Administrators Association (MSAA) is providing the following information regarding the use of copyrighted music at school cheer and dance events (pep rallies, Homecoming events, cheer or dance routines in general, etc.) including competition routines.

The licenses purchased by the MSAA for the regional and state championships do not cover the music usage by individual schools.  Each school is obligated to comply with copyright laws regarding the use of music.  We understand that this change has come up at a time in the year where coaches may have already started the process of ordering, or have already ordered music.  Coaches should contact his/her music provider to see what steps they take to ensure that they are in compliance.  A list of preferred vendors has been compiled by USA Cheer and is included in the links below.

The information provided here and in the links below should not be construed as legal advice.  If you have specific questions or concerns related to copyright laws, please contact an attorney.
