Audio Protection & Recognition has become one of the most important features in the music industry. It is crucial to have all kinds of protection when it comes to digital distribution and royalty (re-)collection.
At Indiefy we take security very seriously, so we do our best to offer you different options to digitally secure your content. These options are available in the PRO plan, simply upgrade here.
Read about the following topics in this article:
We have developed our own digital protection system called Indiefy Shield, which stops anybody from uploading your content for distribution. If copyright infringement is recognized, this content becomes blocked.
We send your content to a cloud-database were most of the distribution services and top labels are registered. This prevents your content being re-uploaded, by registering a unique fingerprint to the database which prevents misuse.
To activate Indiefy Shield, just press the [ON] button when uploading your release.
We can protect your content on Soundcloud as well to prevent others from uploading your content to Soundcloud. This is recommended to users that use Soundcloud on a daily basis and need extra digital protection.
⚠️ PLEASE NOTE. We will register and upload your content to Soundcloud (we will NOT own your copyright). Although, if this protection is chosen, Soundcloud will prevent anyone, including yourself, to re-upload your song to Soundcloud again. ⚠️
If Soundcloud created a generic (new profile) and your release is on that profile, you can request Soundcloud to merge both accounts, this will combine the generic with your official account and all your future releases will be linked to the official.
To activate Soundcloud Protect, just press the [ON] button when uploading your release.
Content ID (Youtube)
Content ID is a recognition software that allows monetization. Youtube creates a digital fingerprint to your content used on YouTube, preventing anyone but yourself to monetize the content using Content ID.
Any video using your content will generate revenue (if it has the sufficient plays), it will be redirected to us reported and payed directly to you.
⚠️ PLEASE NOTE. Content ID is NOT available for everybody since they are guidelines needed to be met before acquiring Content ID, so possibly, we will analyze it and determine if you are elegible. If not, we will NOT send your music to Content ID. ⚠️
To activate YouTube Content ID, just press the [ON] button when uploading your release.
