CMLA Mobile Broadcast does not commit the user to any specific business models. Both are flexible and allow participants in the ecosystem to craft business models as the market needs dictate.
CMLA provides for extensive flexibility in the business models or value chain roles that companies agree to fill in this ecosystem. CMLA does not enter into the decision process between companies as to how they create their go-to-market relationships. CMLA strives to provide high flexibility to enable these choices.
CMLA does not charge an incremental fee when an existing adopter chooses to become a mobile broadcast implementer by signing the Service Provider Mobile Broadcast Addendum. There is also no additional ongoing or usage fee for the Mobile Broadcaster Addendum.
It is possible that an individual customer in the CMLA ecosystem may receive services from more than one service provider (rights issuer). Service Providers pay fees to CMLA following each calendar quarter based on their Active Subscribers in that quarter. If two or more service providers are counting the same end customer as an Active Subscriber in their respective quarterly accounting, CMLA will accept a written certification by one or both service providers stating they have reached agreement to only pay CMLA once in the quarter for this end customer and all customers for which this is applicable.
