The Mechanical Licensing Collective Announces Partnership, Offers Data Quality Initiative To Vistex Users

The Mechanical Licensing Collective has announced it is partnering with Vistex, Inc. to offer its Data Quality Initiative to Vistex’s Music Maestro software users.

The MLC’s Data Quality Initiative provides a streamlined way for publishers, administrators and ex-US collective management organizations to compare their musical works’ data with The MLC’s data and receive reports highlighting the discrepancies between the two sets of data so they can easily identify and correct those discrepancies.

“Vistex’s Music Maestro product is used by copyright owners all over the world,” noted Richard Thompson, The MLC’s CIO. “We wanted to ensure that Vistex’s clients were able to participate in the Data Quality Initiative so that they could see where their works were not being correctly registered with The MLC and take the necessary corrective action.”

“We were delighted to have an opportunity to work with The MLC as it prepares to launch one of the most important copyright administration services in modern times,” said Amos Biegun, Global Head of Rights & Royalties for Vistex. “Our team lead by Stephen Carlisle worked with several key customers to test the new functionality we have added to our platform. Those customers were able to export and then compare their data with The MLC’s data, and the results of these tests were very encouraging.”
