Audiam was created as a collection agency with a new approach based around “big data". Through its own unique technology and business processes it locates the metadata for every sound recording of a specific composition.
As one example, there are currently over 800 recordings of the Bob Dylan song “All Along the Watchtower” out there in the world and Audiam has found them all.
With this data it allows us to determine who is/is not licensed and if you are being paid properly and on time. It also allows us to recover your past revenue and make certain you are paid in the future.
"Until Audiam started making noise about this issue, publishers admitted to Billboard they were unaware of the problem."
