APRA/AMCOS pen world first deal for nightclub music - MusicNSW

APRA AMCOS has become the first Performing Right Organisation in the world to use KUVO as a means to enhance royalty distribution for music played in nightclubs.

APRA AMCOS and Pioneer Corporation have signed an agreement to use Pioneer’s new web service product (KUVO) in Australia , which will enable them to capture the music played by DJs in nightclubs, venues and at festivals.

This means that APRA AMCOS will now be able to accurately capture and distribute royalties based on music metadata reported through KUVO.

All participating clubs and venues in Australia will have KUVO launched in them by APRA AMCOS in the coming months, with reported metadata used as part of royalty distributions in early 2015.
