Muserk Announces Partnership with Japan’s Largest Musical Copyright Administration Society JASRAC


Muserk is happy to announce that we are partnering with The Japanese Society for Rights of Authors, Composers and Publishers (JASRAC). JASRAC is not only the biggest copyright administration society in Japan, it is one of the largest rights societies outside of the United States. We will be leveraging proprietary tools like MPAC® and MMatch® to ensure a seamless collection of JASRAC’s U.S.-based mechanical rights on YouTube.

“JASRAC was founded in 1939 by Japanese composers and lyricists to protect the copyrights of musical works,” said JASRAC’s director in charge of international, Saito Mami. “We are happy to partner with such an innovative company that recognizes the abundance and importance of JASRAC repertoire on YouTube in America. I look forward to this agreement with Muserk bringing good results for Japanese rights owners.”

With the growing popularity of Japanese music and content on YouTube in the U.S., the partnership strengthens both companies’ positions within the growing and complex global online music business. Both MPAC® and MMatch® were specifically designed to find usage of our customer’s data amongst very large datasets while automating the entire royalty chain. This workflow allows us to to do the work of hundreds of people accurately and in a fraction of the time. We feel that Muserk is a perfect fit for the enormous scale of JASRAC’s data.

“We are very excited to be working with JASRAC,” noted Paul Goldman, Founder and CEO at Muserk. “JASRAC is a forward-looking rights society that has always been proactive about collecting royalties in its own territory and this partnership will help to extend the practice of proper remuneration of rights owners globally.”
