To Cumulo Music Rights
With a combined 35 years of experience of the universe of music rights and their respective relationship to one another, Cumulo can add value to a music catalogue by applying a few key actions to increase a catalogue’s yield.
This centres around our clients taking control of their recordings and their publishing, working the two hand in hand, and applying a fresh approach to best practices including tracking, proactive marketing and regular reporting, all of which will be performed by our in-house team.
This is what we do. And we only work with a handful of top level catalogues at any time. Cumulo aims to provide a new alternative to the current rights representation landscape, whilst simultaneously working alongside the major players in the industry.
Specialists in working with both music publishing copyrights and master recordings, our aim is to protect the value of these assets in the long term, to significantly increase annual turnover from them in the short to medium term and to proactively pursue new opportunities in this rapidly changing industry.
What Cumulo Can Offer You
Cumulo works on behalf of our client to maximise every opportunity relating to their catalogue of songs and recordings. We constantly monitor all income types, provide regular accounting and analysis of all partners accounting and provide marketing and regular health checks including:
In-house record label releases, including a detailed re-release strategy and where necessary a team to aid marketing.
Neighbouring rights administration. Where necessary, Cumulo performs audits of client income and searches for missing income relating to historic publishing and recording deals.
Cumulo re-energises clients’ copyrights by finding opportunities for covers, remixes and interpolations by current frontline artists.
Cumulo tracks radio and sync activity worldwide and helps make sure that all publishing partners account accurately and on time.
Cumulo will constantly monitor all rights infringements and sampling issues and provide expert musicology services
Cumulo helps to protect and maintain the integrity of the catalogue: our am is to help clients control the value of their songs by making sure that only the best quality recordings are available.
We help each client tell their story through wider projects: we have affiliates that can assist with musical theatre and grand rights, book deals and movie biopics
In the case of reverted rights, Cumulo can use North American activity to establish best practices and assets that can be used on a WW basis to push existing rights partners to provide best service possible.
Driving sync usages through our “combined rights” approach, making licensing quicker and easier.
Proactively marketing assets to our extensive network of potential licensees across all media, our internal group companies and existing rights representation’s marketing departments.
Maintaining the value of assets by taking time to evaluate each opportunity.
Working closely with our client to consistently ensure the value of the songs is maintained.
