Creating accurate metadata boosts royalties
Correct attribution of content, or the creators of content, is essential for assigning credit. In the music industry, particularly collecting societies such as PRS for Music, which license the use of their members’ music, unmatched, missing and incomplete metadata can mean that music creators might miss royalties.
Consequently, an inordinate amount of time is spent correcting errors and resolving disputes, which hold up payments to music creators. To rectify this anomaly, song data hub Auddly has launched a metadata awareness campaign, #MetadataPays. The goal of the campaign is to help music creators ensure their song data is accurate and help boost their royalties.
The campaign #MetadataPays aims to show songwriters, composers and artists, how they can help make sure they receive correct payments by following some steps to enhance their metadata.
