Music Rights Management Market - Introduction

  • Music rights management is a technology platform that allows music companies to maintain the intellectual property rights of songs and music content. Music content includes compositions, lyrics, and sound recordings which are protected under trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, and patents.
  • Music rights management helps companies to maximize the revenue generated by the royalties on music, and other content. Music rights management platforms are majorly adopted by music publishing companies, individual songwriters, record producers, management companies, and recording artists to manage all records regarding the copyrights and royalties of the music content.
  • Music rights management protects the rights regarding the broadcasting of music on television, radio, or in any public concert without any legal procedure. If broadcasting companies want to broadcast the content, broadcasting companies have to purchase copyrights from musicians or music production companies.
  • Music rights management services ensure that music or content royalties are collected and paid to artists or labels across all regions. Increasing awareness among artists regarding digital music platforms helps to boost the demand for music rights management solutions.
