Naples, FL, Oct. 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Music Licensing, Inc. (OTC: SONG), an influential presence in the Music Industry, remains unwavering in its pursuit of justice within the financial markets. The company is vigorously pursuing $386,574,108.25 USD in damages from OTC Link LLC., a registered broker-dealer and a wholly-owned subsidiary of OTC Markets Group (OTC: OTCM). This legal battle, initially filed as a FINANCIAL INDUSTRY REGULATORY AUTHORITY (FINRA) arbitration case, was initiated under the caption: “FINANCIAL INDUSTRY REGULATORY AUTHORITY RE: THE ARBITRATION OF JAKE P. NOCH FAMILY OFFICE, LLC PRO MUSIC RIGHTS, INC. Claimants, v. OTC LINK LLC Respondent.” The court hearing for this pursuit is scheduled for October 5, 2023.
In our corporate structure, it is essential to clarify that only Pro Music Rights, Inc. is wholly owned by our company. The Jake P. Noch Family Office, LLC, operates as a distinct entity.
Music Licensing, Inc. is resolute in asserting that OTC Link LLC must be held accountable for its actions. OTC Markets Group has attempted to shield itself by categorizing their role as that of a “publisher” rather than acknowledging that OTC Link is a broker-dealer. OTC issuers are, in fact, their clients, and they are not exempt from potential FINRA arbitration initiated by these issuers. We are committed to pursuing accountability and justice in this matter.
It is worth noting that OTC Link, as a broker-dealer, is subject to FINRA arbitration, and we encourage other OTC issuers and investors to consider similar actions when their companies or investments are adversely affected. This is a call for transparency and fairness in the financial markets.
We also raise questions about the practice of OTC Markets Group placing compliance flags on OTC issuers’ market profiles, including “Caveat Emptor, Shell Risk, Delinquency, Promotion.” While OTC claims these “flags” are intended to protect investors, we see them as a business offering to other broker-dealers through their “canari” product. The right of a broker-dealer to make public statements about publicly traded issuers without factual basis and disseminate potentially false information without accountability is a matter of concern.
Music Licensing, Inc. is determined to pursue justice and fairness in the financial markets. We deeply appreciate the continued support of our investors and stakeholders during this crucial legal journey.
Please save the date for the pivotal court hearing on October 5, 2023. We are committed to keeping shareholders informed throughout this legal process.
