General Questions

What do I put for “Creator Name”?

A Creator is the performing artist, band, or other creator who should be credited with the content. For music artists, this is where you will input your stage name. Please do not enter a label, company or director name here.

Please note that capitalization, punctuation and spelling need to be exactly as they appear on your selected DSP profiles, as this will be how your content is deployed and matched.

What is UPC?

Similar to an ISRC, a Universal Product Code (UPC) is a unique 12 character code that identifies unique products like CDs and digital albums. ISRC’s identify individual tracks while UPC’s identify the complete album. As a Music Mastery user, if you do not have UPCs for your content, we can create them for you at no additional cost.

Please note you will need both an ISRC and UPC to deliver your audio and video content to streaming platforms.

What is ISRC?

The International Standard Recording Code (ISRC) is a unique, 12 character code that identifies specific sound recordings and/or music videos. As a Music Mastery user, if you do not have ISRCs for your content, we can create them for you at no additional cost.

What do the different Protection policies (i.e. Monetize, block, permit, no policy) mean?

Based on content strategy goals, the Music Mastery platform enables creators to select different protection policies for how they want their content managed on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. The 4 protection policies include:

  • Monetize– selected platforms may display advertisements with the content, which generates revenue that Music Mastery collects on behalf of the rights holder.
  • Block– selected platforms will prevent users from uploading protected content.
  • Permit– selected platforms will allow users to upload content that contains copyrighted material. Performance metrics, like views, will be tracked; However, no revenue will be generated.
  • No Policy– Music Mastery will not claim copyrighted content on selected platforms.

*Please note that claims will be made on all content uploads, including the creator or rights holder’s own uploads in order to apply the selected policy.

How do I transfer my contents from other distributors to Music Mastery?

If you would like to transfer content from your previous distributor, you will first need to submit release(s) in your Music Mastery dashboard. When creating your release(s), please make sure the Video ISRC(s) match that of your original upload(s). This will allow us to assert ownership on your existing assets. Please make sure that previously signed agreements with any third parties are terminated effectively once Music Mastery’s ownership is applied.

What should I provide if MM asks me to produce supporting documentation regarding my rights?

When Music Mastery asks you for supporting documentation, please provide any and all agreements that prove your ownership or control of the content in question. These types of agreements should typically include the names of the contracting parties, the effective date, the specific content subject to the agreement, the term of the agreement, the rights that are being granted (including whether those rights are on an exclusive or non-exclusive basis) and should be signed by all parties. Unfortunately, a copyright or P.R.O. (Performing Rights Organization) registration does not qualify as sufficient supporting documentation. Our legal and rights management teams will review your documentation on a case-by-case basis.

When I submit content to Music Mastery Distribution, Do I maintain ownership of copyright?

 Yes. Though you will grant Music Mastery Distribution an exclusive license to monetize/protect your content, you will retain 100% ownership of your copyrights. While you retain full ownership of your content, you cannot grant the same rights to other parties. Granting rights to multiple parties may cause a conflict and will not result in additional earnings. In fact, doing so may put your earnings on hold until the conflict is resolved

How does Music Mastery use my Data?

Once users grant authorization to connect their social networks, Music Mastery  will collect data on their behalf in order to provide each user the ability to streamline multi-network publishing and access a centralized analytics dashboard. This analytics dashboard will display and analyze key metrics including content performance, video engagement, revenue generated, and any user-generated content (UGC) claims. Music Mastery  will be able to use this information to provide creators with actionable insights about how to improve their content’s performance. Users can access their analytics on the web application here. Creators may also request changes by contacting us at [email protected] They can request to update, correct or delete their information as needed.

Why is Music Mastery claiming content?

If you are a Music mastery user and have received a notification that Music Mastery is claiming your content, don’t panic! This means that Music Mastery is claiming this content on your behalf. This is required in order for us to enforce your chosen protection policy on your content.

If you are not a Music Mastery user and you think your content is being claimed improperly by one of our users, please send a link to the video in question to [email protected] and a member of our Rights Management team will look into the situation and follow up with you accordingly.

Can I use 3rd party Content?

If there is an aspect of your content that you did not create yourself, you must be granted an exclusive license from the original rights owner in order to claim the content as your own. Below are some examples of content that would require an exclusive license from the original rights owner:

  • Non-exclusive images
  • Clips or snippets of another user’s video that you do not own
  • Beats created by other producers

Musical samples from content that you do not own

What is ownership conflict and how can I resolve it?

YouTube Ownership Conflicts occur when another YouTube partner attempts to claim ownership over an exclusive copyright Music Mastery is also administering for you. Ownership Conflicts put your content’s revenue on hold for as long as the conflicting party’s ownership remains, so it is important to resolve these conflicts as soon as possible.

 

We recommend reaching out to the conflicting party to request that they remove ownership of the assets in conflict.

How long does it take to get my music on TIK TOK?

Benefits of verifying your artist Spotify account include increasing professionalism, credibility, and authenticity.

What happens when I check the box that my song is a cover?

A cover is an original performance of someone else’s song. Since you can only assert rights that you own or control exclusively, checking the “cover” box will prevent you from being able to assert composition rights for works that you did not have a part in composing. Please note that as the recording copyright owner, it is your responsibility to get clearance from the original composition’s rights holder(s).

How do I move my music from another distributor to Music Mastery Distribution?

1. Find all meta data and original files associated with the music you’d like to move to Music Mastery Distribution.

● ISRC codes

Log into the account you have with your current distributor and ask them to remove your music from stores. There is usually a ‘takedown request’ button you can click to make this happen.

IMPORTANT: You’ll see 2 of your music up on DSP, wait until streams are the same number on both, then you can delete the music from the old distributor.
