Business opportunities for independent artists (based on Creative Commons licenses)
Tribe of Noise invests time & resources to develop, test and offer new business opportunities to our Tribe members. A recent example is our in-store music service with all rights included music from Tribe members. Retail stores, supermarkets, hotel chains etc. are given the opportunity to replace existing in-store music programs with Tribe of Noise in-store music repertoire (through their preferred narrow casting company). These clients will pay a subscription fee but save the traditional performing rights and neighboring rights fees. All broadcasting content is online / digitally monitored and participating Tribe members get paid their share on a monthly base.
Changing the value chain
Together with Creative Commons, legal experts and specialized law firms we welcome the discussion to change the existing music industry value chain. We are not against traditional models involving band managers, labels, publishers and collection societies but we think the music industry needs many more flexible ways to license music and/or facilitate talented artists in a changing digital world. Connecting great artists & business with Creative Commons licenses is one of our main goals.
