We are pleased to announce an exciting and groundbreaking collaboration between Legato Labs and Unchained Music that is set to redefine the realm of music licensing and distribution. This strategic partnership brings together the expertise of Legato Labs in blockchain-based intellectual property licensing with the extensive music distribution network of Unchained Music, creating a seamless and innovative solution for artists and music enthusiasts alike.

The primary objective of this partnership is to empower music creators and consumers by providing them with enhanced opportunities and transparent licensing processes. Through the fusion of Legato Labs' cutting-edge music IP-licensing technology and Unchained Music's robust music distribution platform, artists will be able to explore new revenue streams for their creative work while ensuring a secure and streamlined licensing experience. Likewise, businesses, other artists, and music discovery platforms will gain access to a diverse range of legally licensable music, fostering a sense of confidence and trust in the licensing process.

How does the Unchained Music and Legato Labs partnership streamline the licensing process?

On-Chain Licensing

Leveraging the power of blockchain technology, Legato Labs' licensing APIs and smart contracts will be integrated into Unchained Music's platform. This integration ensures the secure and transparent onboarding of music into Legato's protocol, providing artists and rights holders with increased control and peace of mind.

Immediate Licensing Capability

Through Legato's network of music discovery partners, users will have the ability to determine if a track can be licensed directly through the discovery platform. This immediate "License Now" feature eliminates unnecessary delays and simplifies the licensing process, allowing artists to receive fair compensation promptly.

Expanded Music Catalog

Legato Labs will gain access to Unchained's extensive music catalog, enabling the platform to offer a broader selection of high-quality, license-able music to music supervisors and licensors. This expansion creates new opportunities for artists to showcase their talents and connect with a wider audience.

Collaborative Marketing Efforts

Both Legato Labs and Unchained Music will work together on marketing and promotional initiatives to raise awareness of their licensable tracks and license-discovery capabilities across platforms. Through joint efforts, this collaboration aims to drive user adoption and further enhance the exposure and reach of artists.

Music Licensing Shouldn’t Be Hard

Roy Osherove, Co-Founder and CEO of Legato Labs adds, "In an industry that's always evolving, we believe it's crucial to stay ahead of the curve. This partnership with Unchained Music encapsulates our dedication to empowering artists and transforming the music licensing landscape. We're excited to harness the power of blockchain technology to provide artists with an uncomplicated licensing process. But it's not just about making licensing simpler—it's about reshaping the industry to enable artists to make more from their creations. This is about advancing the industry in a way that puts the artists first."

Matt Waters, CEO of Unchained Music, "Our mission is to give more power to artists by providing them with access to easy licensing options, on terms that make sense to them. Lowering the barriers to entry in music licensing results in more sustainable music careers. Unchained Music and Legato make an exceptional team, as we both share a profound commitment to music innovation that empowers artists to maximize the potential of their work with fewer barriers to exploitation, all on their own terms."

The development of this strategic partnership between Legato Labs and Unchained Music is currently underway, with additional details set to be announced in the coming months. Stay tuned for more exciting updates as we embark on this groundbreaking journey together.
