Sacem Offers Blockchain Tool for Songwriters Protection
The French collecting organization Sacem has created Musicstart, a unique service focused on songwriters. It is among the first cases of a PRO employing blockchain powered tool for a service of this nature.
In this instance, this solution – created by Sacem’s subsidiary URights – is geared for works security. “A 100 percent digital solution that makes it simple to create a proof of originality for a work utilizing blockchain technology,” the organization claimed.
“Users give crucial details about their invention, send the related content (lyrics, score, music), and obtain a certificate of originality connected to a tamper-proof fingerprint store in the blockchain, which may be utilized in the case of a legal controversy.”
Sacem emphasized that the facility is not only for its members or renowned composers, but for “all creative — amateurs or specialists, beatmakers or closet composers — and particularly for individuals who are still not participants of a collaborative management system such as Sacem.”
The service charges €3.99 per record for one-time security, or €4.99 per month for limitless safety.
