WE SUPPORT INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

Groove Master is the first legal B2B music streaming service in the MENA region. We are working side by side with Labels, Publishers and the appropriate international and local government bodies, non-profit entities and associations to support “Public Performance Rights” and make music much more accessible and affordable in the UAE and throughout the MENA region.

“Middle East as a market has been a bit of a challenge for the music industry primarily because of the absence of a key element like a collection society. Without a collection society like in the west, it is difficult to collect royalties for artists for their work and hence instances of violation of IP rights have been a constant feature in the region. But this market has seen a considerable change of course lately from where we were 2 years ago, as more partners are sensitive about the IP rights and usage of content appropriately before approaching the major labels. Groove Master is one of the partners who did their homework properly in that aspect before getting into the business which is very important. We hope that this step will encourage more platforms and entertainment mediums to embrace this method of honoring an artist’s work in the right way.”
