Orfium signs deal with Japanese collecting society JASRAC

Building upon Orfium’s recent partnerships with Japanese entertainment giants Avex and Bandai Namco, we are thrilled to announce our latest collaboration with JASRAC, Japan’s largest collective management organization (CMO). Through this exciting venture, our AI-powered technology services will enhance YouTube revenues for JASRAC’s extensive network of over 20,000 members, including talented songwriters, composers, and publishers.

Japanese music is enjoying a global surge in popularity, thanks in part to its remarkable growth on streaming and user-generated content (UGC) platforms. As a result, JASRAC’s members catalogs are gaining unprecedented exposure and appreciation worldwide. In recent years, the Japanese Performing Rights Organization (PRO) has been actively exploring avenues to improve remuneration for its valuable community.

JASRAC’s collaborative efforts with the Music Publishers Association of Japan

In recent years, JASRAC has been actively seeking ways to improve financial returns for its community amidst the growth of Japanese music. In collaboration with the Music Publishers Association of Japan, it has been involved in investigating fingerprint technology since 2017. This endeavor led to the implementation of music recognition devices in retail outlets in 2021.

Orfium’s support for UGC revenue streams

Global recognition of JASRAC’s catalog, combined with Orfium’s expertise has the potential to significantly enhance revenue for JASRAC’s members. 

By enabling revenue claiming across UGC platforms, we strive to ensure that Japanese creators and rights holders can fully capitalize on this new revenue stream and maximize the success of their music on a global scale.
