Sony/ATV is the latest music publisher to be feeling all appy about the way it shares royalty information with its songwriters, with the music publishing major launching a new Android and iOS app via which to access its royalty portal SCORE.

Many music publishers and collecting societies have been busy in recent years trying to ensure their writers have better, more timely and easier-to-access data about how their song rights are generating income as part of a phenomenon historians call The Kobalt Effect.

With many artists often on the move, those efforts have increasingly focused on allowing writers to access royalty information via mobile devices. Sony/ATV says that its new SCORE app “means the company’s songwriters and their representatives can obtain real-time access to their current royalty account and historic earnings whenever and wherever they are and in superlative detail”.

Sony/ATV boss dude Marty Bandier said about the new app yesterday: “At Sony/ATV we are committed to providing our songwriters and their teams with an unrivalled level of transparency and service, which includes giving them access to the most highly-detailed royalty information available. The launch of the SCORE app is an important next step in us delivering on that promise and now means our writers can obtain an unsurpassed insight into their historic and current period earnings with one simple click”.
