The Association Of Independent Music last week announced a tie-up with anti-piracy company MUSO which will see the launch of a new “free-to-member digital piracy protection service” for labels and self-releasing artists among the AIM membership, helping said labels and artists protect their copyrights online.

Confirming the tie-up, MUSO CEO Andy Chatterley said: “The impact [of piracy] on independent music businesses can be particularly hard without a consistent mechanism to remove unlicensed content from the internet. We are therefore delighted to be partnering with AIM to provide a new free-to-label digital anti-piracy service”.

Meanwhile AIM chief Paul Pacifico added: “We can all agree that music piracy remains contentious and protection has been a historically difficult area. MUSO is at the forefront of digital piracy protection and are experts in the business intelligence insights that can be gleaned from it”.

He went on: “This new partnership gives our rightsholder members access to a highly sophisticated anti-piracy solution, free at the point of access, and allows them oversight of their online content and piracy activity. Pirates steal both money and consumer data with no return for artists. This service will allow AIM Members to focus on the very positive relationships between artists and their fans by cutting out the pirates and is a huge win for us all”.
