    Getting paid is all about the metadata

    The complexity of a track ( all of the parties that can claim ownership/royalty ) makes it harder to make sure everyone ( or anyone ) gets their share.
    Of course this is also an intro for new entities to get their 'cut of the action' .

    Music industry song royalties metadata credit problems

    "Recently, a musician signed to a major indie label told me they were owed up to $40,000 in song royalties they would never be able to collect. It wasn’t that they had missed out on payments for a single song — it was that they had missed out on payments for 70 songs, going back at least six years. The problem, they said, was metadata. In the music world, metadata most commonly refers to the song credits you see on services like Spotify or Apple Music, but it also includes all the underlying information tied to a released song or album, including titles, songwriter and producer names, the publisher(s), the record label, and more. That information needs to be synchronized across all kinds of industry databases to make sure that when you play a song, the right people are identified and paid. And often, they aren’t."
