Kobalt has launched what it calls the world’s first ‘global, direct, digital mechanical and performing rights society. The new CMO is based on the existing operation of AMRA (American Music Rights Association), which Kobalt acquired last year.
Imagine you went to your ATM and tried to take out $60 dollars. The machine makes you wait for a half hour then spits out 40 dollars and no receipt. You don't know where the extra money went, why it took so long or what's left in your account. For most people, this would be unacceptable. If you're an artist in today's music industry, it might be your everyday reality.
AMRA, the music rights organization acquired by Kobalt, has signed a global deal with YouTube to collect music royalties directly for all videos on the site, covering more than 100 territories around the world.
It is generally acknowledged that information regarding musical rights and works can be difficult to obtain, something which the Global Repertoire Database initiative was hoping to fix, before crashing and burning in 2014.
The decision from the US National Music Publishers Association to sell its mechanical rights affiliate Harry Fox Agency (HFA) to the Nashville-based, privately-owned performance rights organisation SESAC is seen as a game changer in the way publishing rights will be licensed in future in the US and could also influence future regulation on PROs.
Le premier festival du domaine public s’est ouvert le 16 janvier. Son but : réaffirmer que le destin de toute œuvre est de rejoindre ce bien commun, montrer ce que l’on peut en faire à l’heure du numérique, et inviter tout un chacun à en prendre soin et à le protéger de certaines tentatives de réappropriation abusive. Rencontre avec Véronique Boukali et Alexis Kauffmann, initiateurs du festival.
