Turntable.fm Signs Deal with ASCAP

 Turntable.fm signs deal with ASCAP

Turntable.fm, the increasingly hot social media site that allows users to DJ songs for listeners in virtual rooms, has signed a licensing deal with ASCAP that will ensure that songwriters, composers and publishers will be fairly paid for the use of their music. The blanket license cements the legitimacy of the site, which had previously operated in a legally dubious gray area protected at least in theory by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

Turntable.fm has been a huge hit since opening to the public in May. Though the site is still in invite-only beta mode, it has already attracted hundreds of thousands of users, making it one of the year's most successful online start-ups.
