Rights Administration Entity (RAE)

RAEs are a type of organization that issues mechanical licenses and collects and distributes mechanical royalties. Unlike CMOs, RAEs are for-profit organizations, they can discriminate as to who they accept as members, and do not need legal permission to operate as they are privately-owned. An example in the U.S. is Music Reports (MRI).
