Nevada Patent of the Month – July 2021

The music and media industry are inundated with time consuming searches for information on music rights and licenses. The recording industry has a known problem with keeping track of records associated with various audio recordings, or making the information accessible. This issue has spread across the entire media content industry, resulting in lots of data being lost, untraceable, or inaccurately licensed. TuneGO Inc. has developed a solution to this metadata problem, creating a simple media content management system.

Their system allows for the creation, management, and sharing of media content items along with the associated metadata. During the creation, if integral data is missing, the system will alert the user and give them the chance to fill in the blanks. This specific database would provide the necessary space to track who contributed to a particular piece of content and ensure rights are properly distributed and assigned. Through rigorous security and back-up plans, the system can safely secure and distribute content while also offering a platform for artists to promote their music. It is their goal to have a singular platform in the industry, simplifying the music making process and saving important metadata.
