Sony Music has announced their recent partnership with Dubset which will allow the label’s recordings to be used and remixed without the proper licensing. Even though Dubset has partnered with more than 35,000 labels and publishers, this monumental deal is the first major label to come on board with its system.
Dubset uses proprietary software to identify samples in a mix or remix. From there it will distribute royalties to all of the appropriate rights holders.
That means that certain songs or mixes which were previously almost impossible to clear because the samples they used were copyrighted, are now able to be published via streaming music websites like Spotify and Apple Music.
“The average mix is 62 minutes long and has 22 different songs in it, and those 22 different songs are represented by over 100 different rights holders,” Dubset CEO Stephen White told The Verge.
