Music Reports, the world's most advanced rights administration platform, has reached a new milestone with its Songdex Claiming System, which has now surpassed 1M songs claimed by music publishers. The platform claims to process 250K new sound recording metadata rows per day.


Many of these represent recordings that have never been registered anywhere by their owners, cover recordings of which publishers are unaware, or records that suffer from metadata anomalies which prevent them from matching to their corresponding song data.

Launched in 2016, the Songdex Claiming System provides a free method for publishers to review data about unmatched tracks, find titles that have not yet matched, and tie them to the publisher’s song data.

The system also allows publishers to ensure that all of their existing publishing data is up-to-date, and register new works quickly and easily - all free of charge. With the number of new tracks being commercially released through digital distributors, audio/visual libraries, and UGC platforms approaching one million per month, the system rectifies one of the most significant issues in the modern music publishing business by providing the first platform for comprehensive, intuitive matching and claiming.

Additional benefits for publishers include the ability to collect outstanding royalties (commission free) that may be due on shares of songs licensed through co-publishers or the US Copyright Office; find new, non-statutory licensing opportunities offered through the platform; and obtain sound recording metadata, often discovering new cover recordings of their catalogue.

“We knew when launching the Songdex Claiming System that publishers would gradually realize how valuable a tool it is, and with more than one million tracks claimed, it’s safe to say people are catching on,” said Bill Colitre, Vice President and General Counsel of Music Reports, Inc.

Publishers looking to access the database can do so through their free Music Reports web account, where they can also view royalty statements and consider various licensing opportunities. To login or create a free account with Music Reports, visit its website here.
