◎Apple Music 已經推出了一個新流程，與主要和獨立唱片公司合作，它可以正確識別並直接支付音樂在 DJ 混音中使用的版權所有者，這項技術建立在幾年前從 Shazam 獲得的基礎上.
◎該計劃表面上將大大有助於適當補償創作者在 DJ 混音中使用他們的音樂。畢竟，大多數 DJ 使用簡短的音樂片段，同時播放多個元素，或者將它們巧妙地結合在一起，以至於很多人甚至都沒有注意到。該公司聲明指出，與 DJ及 DJ 混音的供應商合作，包括音樂節、俱樂部、發起人、策展人和獨立唱片公司，以確保他們得到公平的報酬。
Since the advent of streaming services, one of the major problems with DJ mixes has been ensuring that every musical element in those mixes is identified and paid for.
Well, Apple Music has unveiled a new process — in cooperation with major and independent labels — whereby it can properly identify and directly pay the rights holders whose music is used within a DJ mix, building on technology from Shazam, which it acquired several years ago.
The program ostensibly will go a long way toward properly compensating creators for the use of their music in DJ mixes, which had previously been a wild west of copyright. After all, most DJs use brief snippets of music, play multiple elements at the same time, or incorporate them so subtly that many people don’t even notice.
“We also are working with the DJs, and the suppliers of the DJ Mixes including festivals, clubs, promoters, curators and independent labels to ensure that they are compensated fairly,” the company said in a statement.
As part of the rollout, Apple Music is highlighting the thousands of mixes already on the site — including such popular ones as Honey Dijon, Funk Flex, Boiler Room, and from the Tomorrowland festival — as well as bringing in more: Studio K7!’s DJ Kicks archive of mixes will begin coming to the service on Friday (Sept. 10), and Mixmag is bringing its archive of mixes, along with new ones weekly.
“This is a big moment for K7,” said Horst Weidenmueller, founder of Studio K7! “Through the partnership with Apple we finally have a place to celebrate DJ-Kicks with additional 14 editions which haven’t been in the market for over 15 years.”
