Zebralutions and Loudr Partnership

Zebralutions and Loudr
Partnership
Zebralution, a leading digital media
distributor for independent labels
and audiobook publishers and
Loudr, a music rights technology
company, have announced
a strategic licensing partnership.
The deal provides Zebralution with
comprehensive DPD licensing for
its labels and royalty administration
services, as well as access
to Loudr client features such as
real-time publishing metadata for
licensed works via Loudr's API
and catalog matching against U.S.
Copyright Office database.
U.S. copyright laws call for
mechanical licenses when music
downloads are distributed in the
United States through consumer
music services. Each digital
download sale requires the payment
of a mechanical royalty in
the amount of $0.091 for songs of
five minutes or less, or $0.0175
