AudioLock launched 10 years ago and has since grown to be one of the most effective anti-piracy solutions in the electronic music industry.
Specialising in music content protection, AudioLock provides a range of powerful tools including Scanning and Takedown, Watermarked promo delivery as well as more specialised tools such as their search engine tracking and link delisting system, all complimented with detailed reporting/insights allowing you to see what the services achieve. AudioLock has become one of the most trusted, transparent and knowledgeable service providers within its field. Working with some of the biggest performing artists, labels and industry bodies from around the world, and with a passion to educate the industry. AudioLock’s team are committed to sharing their hints and tips, supporting the wider industry on the threats currently damaging their revenue streams and steps they can take to protect themselves.
Fully aware of the complexities of piracy and the steps those behind it will take in order to attempt to avoid various anti-piracy tools and techniques, and in an ever-changing landscape, hidden much deeper than the outer edges of Google alone in the largest part of the web called The Deep Web, AudioLock has developed various technologies which bypass such efforts from the pirates to protect your content. At a time when needless spending is a concern to everyone, AudioLock works closely with their contacts in order to evidence how tailoring their service set-up can work to be cost-effective and financially beneficial.
In 2020, AudioLock proudly partnered with Label Worx to bring you The Music Mission with support still growing beyond 800 already. With the value of the global industry falling by an estimated 56% in 2020, AudioLock aimed to not only unite the Music industry but to tackle infringing pay-for-access sites which are receiving more traffic than legitimate stores with the intention of increasing revenue for the rightsholders that currently is paid to the pirates. As well as the short term gains this represents it puts in place big changes which will continue to benefit the wider industry for years to come.
The results following the work about to be delivered by The Music Mission will be presented and discussed in their panel on 1st October 2020, at Brighton Music Conference.
