Trustful figures about usage
All participating broadcaster panel servers are connected with the Broadcaster Media Chain. Every piece of music is registered and logged by the blockchain.
With smart contracts of the blockchain all copy right holders claim their identity and get their payout following the contract and usage by the stations and their DJ's.
Every track being uploaded by their owners themselves or by DJ's or Station managers will be linked to the blockchain.
Depending on the smart contracts there can be a payout to their rightful owners and to the stations. When stations upload their own media, and identify the ownership by tagging and updating the media data. Also the participating radio stations will get the information provided from the chain once recognized.
Who can join Broadcaster Media Chain?
2) Artists, Composers and Producers: They can sign-up for joining the Broadcaster Media Chain. They will join with a identification process and after validation they will be linked to the media being used on the network. If they decide to upload their work themselves, all media will be spread by the Media Chain, registering which broadcaster is using the media. If some broadcasters already have uploaded the same media themselves, it will be replaced by the media being uploaded by the copyright owners. All owners will receive reporting on how much their work has been used and how much payout they can expect from the network.
3) Advertisers: They can register and sign a smart contract for identification and join the network as advertiser. Once validated, it will be published to all participants, and the advertiser can start with their campaigns. All advertising's being broadcasted will be logged in the blockchain. The network will take the validated numbers in account and will be invoiced for the correct achievements of their campaign. These earning will be divided following all smart contracts with the copyright owners and the broadcasters.
Do we need a subscription to Join?
No, joining the Broadcaster Media Chain will cost you nothing. Only the Advertisers will pay for their campaigns and will partly support the network for maintenance and logistics. Broadcasters will only need to have a subscription of the Broadcaster Panel for getting access to the Media chain. Copyright owners can sign-up for free. Every partner joining the network will deliver their effort to support the network. The broadcaster by playing the music and this way promote the music, copyright owners do their effort by delivering their news and new releases, and Advertisers will pay for their campaigns.
Can we earn money with your media chain?
Every party can make money from the network. Each in their interest. By providing an audience and trustful figures you are sure your investment in time or money can make you profit like any other business model. Those who want to make real profit still need to do their best. Making good shows, good music or the right publicity. Broadcaster panel can only help by providing you the right platform and the right figures.
Can anyone download my content and redistribute?
No! Let's be clear! Broadcaster Media Chain is not a peer to peer sharing platform for people who want to download or listen music. It is a platform for Internet radio stations, making their life a bit easier, and less expensive. All media being uploaded is not really accessible for download. The media is used to create streaming radio shows and for pre-listening DJ's it's with a streaming channels in low quality. When copy right owners are validated by the Media Chain, they preserve the right to decide which releases may be broadcasted and which not. Broadcaster can upload their own media, but also here they cannot download it any more, nor they can send it over to other servers. When copyright owners indicate that certain releases are being broadcasted which are not allowed, the broadcaster is being informed once the upload is done, and deleted if media file is not passing the validation process. Broadcasters not joining the Media Chain will remain responsible themselves and cannot set the media as Royalty free.
When will Broadcaster Media Chain be released?
While Broadcaster Panel for radio automation is started the plans and links are being prepared for starting with the development of the Media Chain. Since good feedback could alter some plans, we think the Broadcaster Media Chain will be ready for public somewhere in Q3 2019.
How do you make sure we're getting paid when broadcasters use our work?
Internet radio broadcasters are obligated to pay royalties for the music they broadcast. This is something they have to arrange themselves with the royalty organization of their choice. Broadcaster Panel provides the playlists in several formats, prepared and adjusted for these royalty protectors. There are 3 type of media files collected for each radio station. Protected by the platform to avoid download and re-sharing.
1) Music uploaded by the radio managers themselves.
This media is royalty protected unless defined otherwise. An exception could be a written contract where artists reject their royalty rights. So called demo's they send to the station manager. But many royalty organizations reject this excuse, so they have to pay. This is what most of the artists are currently used to see in the music industry.
2) Music uploaded by commercial partners.
This media is royalty protected unless defined otherwise. These providers only provide the music to the radio stations. This is almost never royalty free or signed with contracts between radio station and artist. These tracks will be listed for royalty fee calculations collected by the royalty organizations.
3) Music upload by authenticated artists, labels and promoters.
This media is royalty free defined in the network and radio stations won't need to pay royalties when they use it in their broadcasts. They are not listed in the royalty lists, depending on the format. If listed often marked as royalty free.
For each airtime of the third type of media, Broadcaster Chain will calculate the earnings by using a division key based on advertising income over the block chain for all broadcasters using the Broadcaster Panel Chain network. These earnings are being paid by Broadcaster panel itself.These payouts are frequented with a maximum of once per 2 weeks and with a minimum earned amount of 50,00 Euro or more. When no advertising is registered, or less advertising is being sold, the amount will drop. More advertising income means more income for artists and station managers. Your value is calculated on the real popularity of your work, protected by the blockchain, so no one can alter the results of your value calculations.
At the time of this writing we are on speaking terms with organizations, artists, labels and promoters, and with certified block chain providers like the biggest end current one of the best providers like IBM.
Identification Process Artists & Bands
Secure your identity NOW!
Each artist, band or other rightful holders will need to be identified for making it possible to have a proper and rightful payout system. Yet once again, completing forms and signatures, is besides time consuming also a risk. Especially when you don't know the remote party you're registering with.
