What is .MUSIC?
The Community is a strictly delineated and organized community of individuals, organizations and business, a logical alliance of communities (called Music Community Member Organizations or “MCMOs”) of similar nature that relate to music. It represents a majority of the Community involved in the legal production, promotion and distribution of music worldwide.
Types of supporting Music Community Member Organizations include International and National Label Associations; International and National Music Associations; Government Ministries of Culture; Arts Councils; Music Information Offices; Lyrics Aggregators and Music Publishers; Online Music Communities; Digital Distributors and Aggregators; Music Export Offices; the Global Independent Music Community; Collection Agencies and Music Rights Organizations; Country-based Music Coalitions; Music Conferences and Festivals; Music Industry Professionals; Conductors; Managers; Music Big Data for Apps and Developers; Music Library and Archives; Music Educators; and other entity types.
Music organizations can support DotMusic’s Mission and Purpose to launch a trusted, safe and authenticated .MUSIC domain extension that is community-governed by sending a DotMusic Letter of Support to ICANN, the governing body of the Internet’s domain space.
Legal music organizations of non-negligible size can also qualify to become a DotMusic .MUSIC-accredited MCMO to offer .MUSIC domains to their members.
