In July at the inaugural RightsTech Summit in New York City, leaders from startups to tech/media powerhouses gathered for an exploration on the “state of the art” when it comes to innovation in rights management.
As use cases for content continually evolve, and the need for licenses and permissions grows exponentially, automated rights markets can speed up the licensing process and reduce transaction costs. In the music and visual arts especially, where are automated licensing systems finding the most traction?
A panel discussed these and other issues with CCC’s Chris Kenneally. Joining him were:
- Danny Anders, CEO & Founder, ClearTracks, a marketplace for managing and clearing music rights.
- Darryl Ballantyne, CEO & Founder, LyricFind, the largest legal, licensed lyrics database in the world
- Stephen White, CEO, Dubset Media, a company looking to revolutionize payments to rights holders from the streaming of DJ mix content with its proprietary technology platform, MixSCAN®.
- Steve Schlackman, VP, Product Innovation, Orangenius, where he is responsible for the design and development of the company’s online platform to help creatives record and enumerate their work.
