PIONEER DJ SERVICE ‘KUVO’ PARTNERS W/ CANADIAN PRO & SOCAN TO MAKE SURE ELECTRONIC ARTIST GET PAID EVERY TIME THEIR REMIX IS PLAYED!!
Pioneer DJ‘s service KUVO to make sure that electronic artists get paid every time their remixes are played at the dance club.
KUVO partnered with Performing Rights Organizations (PRO), Society of Composers, and Authors and Music Publishers of Canada (SOCAN), to be able to beam music metadata into other PROs.
KUVO is a platform providing a new entertainment space for dance music fans that enables DJs to share details of the tracks they’re playing in real time via the KUVO app. It also supports initiatives to fairly distribute royalties to music copyright owners including artists and producers — such as ‘Get Played, Get Paid,’ which is led by AFEM1 — by directly supplying metadata from music being played in clubs to PROs. There are no additional costs for DJs or venues and no maintenance is required from clubs that adopt the free and easily-installed system. – Business Wire
DJs seem to always create remixes or mashups for different songs, so it’s only right that they get a royalty check.
KUVO definitely helps the DJs get paid for their work along with the benefit of the club goers downloading the app by being able to see what the DJ is playing in the club you’re in…. So no need for Shazam!!
Hurry up and jump on the wave, because places like Austria, Belgium, Spain, and the UK is already using the app.
