The global source of truth for
the music industry.

A Fragmented Industry.

Music industry is fragmented and has not evolved in copyright management processes since before the invention of the internet. Due to the archaic nature of the music industry, great inefficiency have emerged to the tune of over $2 billion dollars of lost royalties each year and growing.

With the inefficiencies and growing number of middle-men in the music industry, creators are earning less than ever; Creators are bringing home less than $14.00 on every $100 worth of revenue that they generate. The 86%+ goes towards record deals, collection fees, licensing fees, and other costs.

New Technologies.

Bluebox leverages technology to manage music copyright information across the music industry as a whole, reducing the $2billion per year lost royalties yearly.

By using modern technology, creators can enjoy peace of mind knowing that they will collect more royalties than before and eliminate royalty losses from incorrect contracts.

The Future.

Bluebox is preparing creators for the music industry of tomorrow. Enabling creators to benefit from missed capitalization opportunities such as fictionalized copyrights, capitalization options, and sales of future royalties.

By digitizing music copyright information with Bluebox technology, creators are setting themselves up for the music industry tomrrow.
