We Bring Fairness & Transparency to Royalty Accounting

Music streaming is on the rise. Thus, streaming services and record labels struggle to keep track of billions of streams occurring on a daily basis and pay the proper royalties to the music right holders.

Legitary provides a technical solution based on machine learning to audit streaming revenues and detect eventual fraud. We give you the ultimate tool to gain control over your streaming data and consequently, control over your royalties:

  • Monitor and validate your streaming data
  • Gain insights about the market performance of your tracks
  • Detect suspicious behavior (e.g. unreported streams, significant overperformance)

The Product

In cooperation with Vienna University of Technology we developed a new statistical method based on machine learning, to detect irregularities in streaming data.

Our method is patented, scientifically peer-reviewed and validated with real data from industry leaders. In an extensive simulation study the Legitary algorithm uncovered more than 92% of accounting fraud instances in royalty statements.
