  • Type of license and its payment changes with respect to way of usage
  • Incomplete Cue Sheet reporting diluted the efforts of music clearance
Legal
  • PRO regulations along with different license type and payment terms
  • Outdated pre-digital laws and agreement compliance
  • New performance forms/technologies (e.g. ringtones, AI captures)
  • Managing compulsory licensing versus voluntary licensing - Public performance rights
  • Different Legal Regimes/geographies for Songwriters, Performers and record labels Inefficient Contract generation and process visibility
Technology
  • Tracking of music usage as per given license can be performed through technology
  • Time taking negotiation with PRO along with multiple approvals from production house can be automated
  • Error proof cue sheet reporting through advanced software, beside keeping records of all the compliance agreement
