Documenting music metadata and rights ownership during the creation process.

There is a gap in the communication and transcription of metadata between societies, organisations, service providers and other intermediaries. This fragmentation of information weakens the digital infrastructure of the music industry and ultimately leaves songwriters, artists, and producers alike paying the price.

Music metadata plays a crucial role in maximising remuneration for songwriters, producers,  performers and artists. The documentation of metadata starts at the beginning of the creation process. Comprehensive and organised music metadata and rights enables faster identification of rights holders and contributors.

It’s all in one place – your music metadata, music rights and audio files – ready when you are.

MusicTeam® helps you maintain the consistency and integrity of your music metadata on a single platform. Compile your music credits during the creation process, set your ownership shares, and upload your files. 

We uphold the highest industry-recognised standards when it comes to your metadata and rights. We’re a DDEX member and bridge the infrastructural gaps to deliver your metadata, rights and releases where it needs to be.
