April 20, 2023 – The OpenPlay Network Effect: Beyond Proprietary Systems

Everything works better when we have common ground. This is a truism that the music industry has not always lived by. Proprietary systems throw up hurdles to data management, distribution, royalty collection, and more. OpenPlay works to clear those hurdles and help the music industry get more done faster. It does this by providing labels, distributors, publishers, and other rightsholders with powerful asset management tools that allow them to capture catalog data and assets in a highly relational system that connects all products, assets, and artists. In this webinar, attendees will walk through OpenPlay’s various features, learn how it works, and get a glimpse into a future beyond proprietary systems.
