Is the push for transparency in the music industry a cause to fight for... or an inevitability? This week on the podcast, Noah Becker says it is both! Noah chats with host Dmitri Vietze about how multiple claims on music usage keeps all parties from getting paid and how transparency can help unlock those revenues. He argues that everyone benefits when the “black box” thinking and market-share payouts of the past are replaced by transparent data. As CEO of AdRev, Noah explains his company’s work administering music assets with YouTube’s Content ID system. AdRev manages over 15 million copyrights, making sure that rights holders from major labels and content libraries all the way down to indie musicians get paid when their music is used in YouTube videos, and soon other UGC platforms. Find out how increased access to data is making the push to transparency inevitable and how transparency will lubricate data flow and revenue growth for the industry.
