If I don't ask, they can't say yes!

Administration of Copyrights – Metamask

A Copyright holder is initially always the creator(s). However, the creator can empower anyone to act on their behalf. Like CMO/PROs, agents, music publishers, record labels and investors to hold the right to receive royalties for a specific time. Metamask is used for this empowerment in a transparent and immutable way. For instance, at the NIM Foundation, we use Gnosis...

NIMs ecosystem and the MetaVerse

NIMs ecosystem is the communities and partners, and an important part of NIMs MetaVerse - a decentralised Internet where those who create the value also capture the value.

NIM administration hubs status

As of October 2021, the NIM administration is firmly established in the three countries with a net music export* - bringing more royalties in than they send out: USA, Sweden and UK! The USA had an export ratio of 4.5 in 2019 (for every dollar they sent overseas that year, they collected four-and-a-half dollars). Sweden’s export ratio was 2.7. The...

Disintermediation — NIM style

I used to get many questions on why I created New Internet Media. As the need from the rightsholders and the value for the whole ecosystem is getting increasingly clear to all, the question is now usually how instead of why. In the pre-internet area, the idea was whoever generated the demand also captured the value, and middlemen got commoditized...

Next generation of Copyright administration (NIM 4.0)

Release of new music in diversified markets... To release a Copyright means that it’s available for licensing by Digital Service Providers (DSPs). As soon as the Copyright is registered, a note to DSPs will notify them of a change in administrative control and that a licence will have to be obtained from NIM services. This is as it works today,...

The Music industry are less depending on Spotify

Its an increasingly fragmented market. The major music labels had a 33% growth in Q2 2020 to reach $3.1 billion. In the same period, had Spotify just 23%. Why isn’t Spotify’s dominant market role following the music labels growth? Even though Spotify is still the most significant market share with 31%, it’s significantly down from 2016 heyday of 38%. The answer...

A “Complete Reset” Of Music Streaming

UK MPs (Members of Parliament) released a report calling for a "complete reset" of the market, with musicians given a "fair share" of the £736.5 million that UK record labels earn from streaming. In a report, they said royalties should be split 50/50, instead of the current rate, where artists receive about 16%. Obviously, there is a legal battle forming here...

There is light in the digital tunnel.

See the press release below (it's in Swedish, but try Google translate)! SKAP Press Release “Music...
