LOS GATOS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Audible Magic announced their rights-managed catalog has surpassed 100 million tracks, a first in the space. This milestone gives Audible Magic the largest business-to-business rights-managed catalog available.
The impressive catalog, which contains tracks from over 400,000 labels, is part of the long-established MediaNet content fulfillment and rights administration business purchased by Audible Magic in January 2021. Audible Magic is now the leading provider of content identification, licensing, media fulfillment, and rights administration services to digital music and social media platforms.
The catalog is a result of close relationships with record labels and publishers built over 20+ years of successfully launching music services around the world. It also required the development of a sophisticated rights management platform to take account of the constant changes in rights ownership, and the accelerating numbers of new tracks being released. In 2020 alone, Audible Magic saw a 67% increase in new releases added to their catalog, ingesting, on average, 12,000 new albums every day. This is a massive undertaking and is unmatched in the industry.
Coupled with a 100M tracks catalog, digital platforms can access a variety of Audible Magic’s turnkey music licensing solutions for a variety of services including fitness applications, short-form video, streaming, and downloads. Additionally, Audible Magic’s flexible solutions enable platforms to leverage their own licenses as well as Audible Magic’s pass-through licenses when applicable.
