Independent record labels and distributors are gaining divestments from Warner under the IMPALA / Merlin deal, but in order to act on the commercial deals made, there are operational challenges.
On the digital side of things, once a deal is concluded with an acquirer, Warner make the master digital assets available online for a limited time only to be downloaded and managed by the buyer.
This may prove challenging for some labels or distributors who do not have the skills or expertise in-house to gather and manage these digital assets quickly and easily.
CI can download, store and deliver these digital assets at no charge, on behalf of independent buyers who are not currently CI clients. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call +44 207 729 8493 to find out more.
