Metadata: A Solution Without A Universal Protocol (FYI Music News)
FYI Music News: Metadata: A Solution Without A Universal Protocol. “Secure digital audio transfer platform Byta recently commissioned music journalist Shawn Reynaldo to write a three-part series that looks into the state of music sharing, when it comes to working with audio files: music metadata, music storage, music sharing. What follows is part one dealing with embedding the compete metadata that assigns rights and ownership in tracks so that compensation to creators and rights owners can be correctly assigned. As it stands today, there is no standard for metadata and because of inconsistencies it is estimated that billions of dollars remain on the table as assignment of payments has proved elusive.” A nice deep dive that will resonate with anyone who’s ever had to work with missing/incomplete metadata.
