A interesting article  that shows all the problems that PeerTracks solves except nobody know yet about PeerTracks.

The biggest message out of the report is just the lack of technology adoption for the back end of the music industry," Berklee's Bargfrede says. "Streaming is now becoming the dominant method of music consumption. We need to figure out how to work with the streaming services in a way that makes sense to creators."

More specifically, the report calls for an industry-standard format for up-to-date information about the various types of music revenues, so artists could in effect monitor their royalties online the way consumers track their bank accounts. The authors also propose creating "a decentralized, feasible" database of global copyright ownership details.

Good article. Thanks for sharing oco.

It really sums up what we heard at MIDEM quite nicely. The even mention the Kobalt Music Group. They are trying to be the one global rights database. Many have tried.... many have failed... many weren't P2P blockchains though.
