Please find a list below of the "companies" offering help with charting songs for the Rock Band Network (RBN). This is simply a list of those who have expressed a desire to produce the charts and have set up a web site to entice prospective bands. Because these sites have no connection with Harmonix or MTV games, this list is NOT promoting any particular group of charters nor does this list guarantee the quality of these sites’s craftsmanship. This is simply an informational list to help bands find charting groups to help in their endeavors. The order in which they are seen is in no way indicative of a ranking as to which group is preferred or better qualified.
Please NOTE: This list has been split into two pages, Post #1 and Post #2. If you represent a band looking for someone to chart your songs please be sure to look over both pages.
Please NOTE: Harmonix's policy concerning authoring groups is as follows:
Our official policy regarding authoring companies, which has just been drafted and may be altered in the future, is as follows:
Companies may indicate, in a descriptive manner, that they provide authoring services for the Rock Band Network on their website if they (1) have accepted the end user agreement for the Magma(TM) software and (2) post the following notice prominently on their website: “This site is not affiliated with, or endorsed by, Harmonix Music Systems Inc., MTV Networks or their affiliates.”
The intention of these guidelines is to allow companies to promote their role in the Rock Band Network by accurately describing their services, while maintaining a clear distinction between Harmonix/MTV and the authoring companies. Harmonix/MTV generally does not endorse any authoring companies, and we don’t want any confusion in the minds of the customers on that point. We reserve all rights, and nothing in this policy is intended to, nor shall grant, any trademark licenses.
Hopefully this clears up some of the confusion. If anyone has any questions, or would like further clarification, please email [email protected]
