AudioSoft, ASCAP compose Web music-use report pact

System to insure compensation for musicians

San Francisco-based AudioSoft has inked with ASCAP to provide the performing rights org with comprehensive, fully automated reporting of music usage by Webcasters.

AudioSoft’s digital copyright and data reporting system is designed to ensure that songwriters, composers and publishers are appropriately compensated for the increasing volume of music delivered via the Internet.

Rollout of the AudioSoft Rights Management System to the 1,500 Webcasters that currently hold ASCAP licenses will begin in April, with worldwide deployment planned for the second quarter.

The service initially will be available on the RealNetworks G2 platform, but eventually will support all platforms while evolving to support business models for music consumption based on streaming media technologies.
