We’ve been looking at shaping the digital market from the outset. This direct relationship with the ICE Core allows us to eliminate parallel processing through other incompatible society works databases. This will result in quicker, more efficient and accurate digital royalty distribution across the Songtrust platform and extended to its fast-growing songwriter and publisher client base.
The collaborative effort in launching this new enhanced ICE is one that we are very proud of. ICE brings new economies of scale within reach of all rightsholders and will simplify the licensing market.
We’re excited to confirm a full pan-European deal with ICE. Mixcloud has been supporting artists, songwriters and creators since the start, and we are proud to partner with ICE on this mission.
ICE is a unique offering that combines the expertise of the three owners within copyright administration and multi-territory online licensing and processing. ICE has been developed to deliver quality solutions to an increasingly international and borderless market and we are confident that ICE will continue setting new benchmarks for the services rightsholders and music users can expect in this market.
We are delighted to continue deepening our relationship with music by partnering with ICE in a first-of-its-kind licensing deal. Facebook’s journey with music is just beginning and we look forward to working with ICE and songwriters to build a community together around music.
