As part of the terms set for these licenses, the Judges designated SoundExchange, Inc., as the organization charged with collecting the royalty payments and statements of account submitted by eligible nonsubscription services such as, among others, Commercial Webcasters and Broadcasters, and distributing the royalties to the copyright owners and performers entitled to receive such royalties under the section 112 and 114 licenses. 37 CFR 380.4(b)(1) (Commercial Webcasters), 380.13(b)(1) (Broadcasters).

SoundExchange must first file with the Judges a notice of intent to audit a licensee and serve the notice on the licensee to be audited. 37 CFR 380.6(c), 380.15(c). On August 8, 2012, SoundExchange filed with the Judges separate notices of intent to audit DKCM, Inc., a Commercial Webcaster, and Greater Media, Inc., a Broadcaster, for the years 2009, 2010, and 2011.
