The world has become digital, but the collective rights management systems for royalties have largely remained untouched by progress.
Artists have the right to expect accuracy and accountability to show all sources of income on a regular basis. With the latest technological solutions for processing and analysing royalty statements, this expectancy can be achieved with relative ease for the industry as a whole. With efficient software, it is possible to easily process royalties every month, giving artists a snapshot of their current position and tools to better manage their careers.
An emerging solution for total transparency in the music industry and royalty distribution lies in the use of Blockchain.
In Russia, Blockchain has totally modernised the collective management system with the IPChain infrastructure. IPChain stores data about all transactions with IP by recording them in the distributed ledger, where all members have access to their own copy of information.
Content creators can track each single use of their works, see where the revenue comes from, how it is calculated, and make informed decisions about how to manage their IP further using a network of interconnected services.
Join the conference on 19th May to discover the benefits of making royalty collection digital, and how to achieve it. Registration here.
