Digital Music Services
Consumers demand that digital music services make available millions of recordings. Simply identifying the tens of thousands of music publishers that own the songs embodied in these recordings is a monumental task, to say nothing of the effort required to license the rights and pay royalties. No wonder the leading digital music services hire Music Reports to handle these functions, so that they can focus on attracting subscribers and advertising dollars.
Consumer products companies have long known that adding music to products like games, social expression products and hardware devices is a unique way to bond with consumers. But navigating the complicated music rights landscape makes doing that more difficult than ever - especially since consumers now expect their products to be available in all new media formats. Leading consumer products companies let Music Reports handle the music rights, so that they can concentrate on moving product SKU's.
Record labels face tremendous challenges in their back-offices as they navigate the difficult transition from physical to digital distribution. For example, legacy license administration and royalty accounting systems may be ill-suited for processing the data related to digital transactions. For these reasons, record labels increasingly outsource these functions to Music Reports as their preferred license administration and royalty accounting vendor, which enables them to dramatically decrease overhead and increase efficiency.
Wireless carriers and aggregators increasingly need to offer consumers voluminous catalogs of musical content in order to increase ARPU, reduce churn and compete for new customers. Acquiring rights to this content and reporting to music rightsholders for uses of it can sidetrack the most well-staffed mobile business. No matter if the content includes ringtones, ringbacks, music videos, downloads or streams, Music Reports offers wireless companies an end-to-end music rights administration solution, so they can focus on their core businesses.
Broadcast & Cable
Broadcasters and cable providers today face intense competition for consumers who can access a rapidly increasing number of entertainment, sports, news and talk options via the Internet. They can't afford to dedicate limited resources to the tedious administration of music rights. That's why smart companies choose to outsource music rights administration to Music Reports, experts who save them both time and money.
