The music industry’s digital supply chain is broken


unidentified titles


in unpaid royalties


unidentified titles added monthly

 Music Copyright Administration is in Silos

The divided administration of recording and publishing means that digital service providers receive the recording license metadata or the publishing licensing metadata, but never both.

 Missing Data is a $2.5bn Problem

Service providers are unable to pay to rights owners where the owner is unknown. 45 million titles with unknown rights owners were filed to the US Copyright in the past year, with 1.3 million being added each month.

 Black Box Royalties are Unclaimed Royalties

Paperchain has an indexed database of over 45 million unidentified right owner titles, predominantly coming from the NOI titles claimed to the US Copyright Office under Section 115 - Notice of Intention to Obtain a Compulsory License.
