SECUREYOURCOPYRIGHT & PROTECTING YOUR RIGHTS
Copyright certification and protection for the digital agePromoJukeBox provides a unique international storage and traceability service that allows songwriters, authors, creators and legitimate copyright owners to file/upload their works (such as songs, music, lyrics etc) and thereby to digitally certify that these works were in their possession at the date and time of certification. In the case of counterfeiting, plagiarism or other intellectual property disputes, the certification is an important part of proving the contracting partners’ copyright in such works as the proof of the copyright is the responsibility of the person that claims to be the copyright owner of a work.
We live in a time where communication, collaboration, speed and feedback are the core of most creative processes. Therefore tracks will be digitally shared in the writing and production stage, i.e. long before promotion starts or the release is scheduled with:
- Record companies
- Advertising agencies
- Movie producers
- TV Producers
- Web Designers
- Music Supervisors
The existing models are not built for the digital world and the current workflow. In the event that you need to go to court to claim your copyright, you have to prove that you have created the song first and securing the proof of copyright with an ownership certification is your responsibility!
In the event that the copyright owner needs to go to court regarding a plagiarism he has to prove that he has have created the work first and it is his responsibility to secure his copyright with a certification proving that this work was in his possession before the plagiarism.
To solve this problem, we have combined the copyright ownership register and certification process with our long-established watermark service PromoJukeBox to protect your work.
SecureYourCopyright adapts the digital workflow and creates a homogeneous communication chain in the creative process which is absolutely crucial for registering and protecting your music against plagiarism, copyright infringement and piracy!
SecureYourCopyright takes copyright protection with an ownership certification to the digital workflow and age.
QUICK COPYRIGHT OVERVIEW
- "Copyright" is established and actually exists at the very moment when an original song or musical work is created and fixed in a tangible and accessible form, as recorded or written.
- Copyright varies from one country to another. For example in Europe (29th October 1993 European directive) law extends the term of copyright protection to 70 years post-mortem (the same in the US), which means that 70 years after the death of the author, the work falls within the public domain.
WHAT WE DO?PromoJukeBox’s SecureYourCopyright provides a unique international storage and traceability service that allows songwriters, creators and legitimate copyright owners to file and digitally certify the ownership of their original works (songs, music and lyrics) in case of counterfeiting, plagiarism or other property disputes.
In case of total or partial copyright infringement you MUST:
- Demonstrate that you have created that piece of music work and did not copy it from anyone;
- Prove the DATE of creation of the music work and establish the anteriority versus the infringing work.
You will have to:
- Prove and have documented the communication date of your original music work;
- Prove that the fraudster has had access to your original music work before being inspired and stealing the copyright!
