OUR FORENSIC AND PRACTICAL APPROACH WILL UNCOMPLICATE THE TERRITORY-BY-TERRITORY LICENSING PROCESS
With the internet at its heart, online is a form of distribution that supports many different business models for audiovisual content distribution, whether completely standalone or ancillary to traditional broadcasting.
The predominant service models making use of online streaming technologies are:
- video-on-demand (VOD) services in their various forms (SVOD, AVOD, TVOD and FVOD),
- over-the-top (OTT) services, which can be linear or on-demand, and
- linear free ad-supported streaming TV (FAST) channels.
The internet may not have any geographical boundaries, but music licensing certainly does. Online streaming services need to be separately licensed in the territories where the consumer has access to them.
It may be complicated, but we understand that getting the right detail is essential to getting the right deal, whatever the distribution model.
We provide insightful, practical and sustainable strategies not just for the here and now but for the future too.
