Quality metadata is key to having a transparent digital music distribution business. There is currently an undeniable trend in the industry, focused on improving what is included in this information, helping increase the visibility of content and also creating an easier way to distribute and collect royalties generated by creators in general, including not only to artists but also to composers.
An example of this trend is Claro Música, which now requires filling in the composer field on its platform in order to distribute music through them. For that reason we have added this change, specifically for this channel, and thus comply with the requirements of the laws of Brazil, which establish the information about the composer as mandatory within the basic metadata of a release. If Claro Música is one of your usual distribution channels, make sure you have this information handy from now on.
