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.
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.
We are excited to deepen our relationship with ICE members by renewing our license. The updated agreement under ICE Core means we can drive more value to rightsholders while delivering an incredible music experience to fans around the world across both YouTube and YouTube Music.
As the online business evolves, we continue to evaluate our digital strategy and review our service providers around the world to ensure that our songwriters and composers receive the best service and achieve the most competitive rates possible. We chose to partner with ICE directly in Europe as they offer a tailored service with the business intelligence tools necessary to effectively track and police our royalties. ICE has continued to demonstrate that they are at the forefront of the pan European licensing business having negotiated deals with all of the major digital service providers across Europe and beyond.
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.
