As a musician, protecting your copyrights should be high on your priorities. It was not long ago, that China was seen as a pirate’s paradise. The things have changed drastically and nowadays when it comes to music, it is so easy and affordable to use streaming services in China that piracy is no longer a major issue.
But, there is always a but… The main concern for you as a musician is that sometimes your fans might share your music to Chinese streaming services like Netease music without you knowing about it. This way it is possible that people listen to your music from Chinese services, but you won’t make a dime! So what should you do to protect your copyright and get the royalties from your music? We have good news for you: It is super easy and affordable!
1. Check if your music is available in Chinese streaming services from finder.musicinfo.io
2. A) If your music is available in China, you use a reliable distributor, and you get royalties reports, your copyrights should be ok! B) Your music is available in China but you don’t know who have distributed it there. Contact us and we will find out the situation! C) Your music is not available in China or it’s not in all the stores we distribute to. Move to step 3.
3. Distribute your music to all major Chinese streaming services + internet radios by getting a Musicinfo Distribution Subscription! We will distribute your music OR claim your copyrights from the already distributed music, if it has been distributed without your permission.
And that’s it! Your music copyright is now protected in China, and you will collect 100% of the royalties earned!
